1) Request for Known carnitine palmitoyl transferase-deficient tissue/leukocytes
2) Request for collaboration on Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA)
3) Molecular Genetics overview request
4) Clinical Genetics exam questions via the internet

1) Request for Known carnitine palmitoyl transferase-deficient tissue/leukocytes

My colleagues and I are doing research on carnitine palmitoyl transferase
2 (CPT2) deficiency in humans. We are setting up molecular analyses for
the known mutations (approx. 10) and need positive specimens especially
for the Pro50His mutation. Once we have established our detection system for
the known mutations, we will begin to identify new mutations in the gene
among individuals who do not have any of the known mutations. We would
approeciate any assistance available from colleagues.

Thank you.

Dear Ladies and gentlemen!

Refinement of the hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) locus

Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) is an autosomal dominant, recurrent
focal neuropathy characterized by episodes of painful brachial plexus
neuropathy with muscle weakness and atrophy, as well as sensory
disturbances. Single episodes are commonly preceded by unspecific
infections or immunization, or are associated with parturition. Minor
facial dysmorphic features are present in some pedigrees but do not clearly
segregate with the disease. To confirm the recently described HNA locus on
distal chromosome 17q, we performed a genetic linkage study in an extended
Turkish pedigree. We were able to refine the HNA locus on chromosome
17q24-q25 in a 16 cM region (St-gbauer et al., Hum.Genet. 99:1997:685-687).
In order to further refine the locus we are searching for more HNA families
to find more recombination events.

We would be grateful for collaboration with other groups who are aware of
HNA families.

           As a student of the Southport School, Queensland
Australia I am requesting for your assistance with a Yr12
Biology Assignment with my chosen topic of Molecular Genetics
I would appreciate any relevant information involving a general
overview of the topic.
