Abstract

Polymicrogyria is a common malformation of cortical development whose etiology remains elusive. We conducted whole-exome sequencing for 124 patients with polymicrogyria and identified de novo ATP1A3 variants in eight patients. Mutated ATP1A3 causes functional brain diseases, including alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC), rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism (RDP), and cerebellar ataxia, areflexia, pes cavus, optic nerve atrophy, and sensorineural deafness (CAPOS). However, our patients showed no clinical features of AHC, RDP, or CAPOS and had a completely different phenotype: a severe form of polymicrogyria with epilepsy and developmental delay. Detected variants had different locations in ATP1A3 and different functional properties compared with AHC-, RDP-, or CAPOS-associated variants. In the developing cerebral cortex of mice, radial neuronal migration was impaired in neurons overexpressing the ATP1A3 variant of the most severe patients, suggesting that this variant is involved in cortical malformation pathogenesis. We propose a previously unidentified category of polymicrogyria associated with ATP1A3 abnormalities

Thank you to everyone who joined in this helpful Question & Answer session in November of last year with Dr. Katerina Vezyroglou on her research work. As promised, we have included the link to the recorded zoom session for those of you who were unable to attend the event.    We hope you find this helpful and as in the session,  Dr. Vezyrouglou is very happy to hear from anyone who would like to ask  any more questions. All questions are welcome.    As discussed in the zoom chat, this project also feeds into the OBSERV AHC natural history study involving many international centers.
