All our knowledge begins with the antisenses.
The Journal of Clinical Investigation; Goldberg EM

Dec 2nd, 2021 - Epilepsy is the neurological disorder defined by spontaneous recurrent seizures, which are abnormal patterns of electrical discharge in the brain. A major advance in neurology over the last 20 years is the identification of genetic variation as an...

De novo FZR1 loss-of-function variants cause developmental and epileptic encephalopathies.
Brain : a Journal of Neurology; Manivannan SN, Roovers J et. al.

Nov 18th, 2021 - FZR1, which encodes the Cdh1 subunit of the Anaphase Promoting Complex, plays an important role in neurodevelopment by regulating the cell cycle and by its multiple post-mitotic functions in neurons. In this study, evaluation of 250 unrelated pati...
