Added comment: Provisionally associated with ?Spinocerebellar ataxia 26 #609306 (AD) in OMIM based on Hekman et al 2012 case.
PMID: 23001565 - Hekman et al 2012 - report a six-generation kindred of Norwegian ancestry with a late-onset pure cerebellar ataxia in which a heterozygous P596H substitution in eEF2 was found to segregate with the disease phenotype in 24 individuals and two currently asymptomatic individuals. Functional studies in yeast showed that the variant (P580H in the EFT2 gene in yeast) affected translational fidelity.
PMID: 33355653 - Nabais Sá et al 2021 - identified de novo EEF2 missense variants in 3 unrelated children (3, 6 and 9 years of age) with a mild phenotype comprising motor delay and relative macrocephaly associated with ventriculomegaly.
