Show Summary Details


Mutations in CLN6 cause one of the earliest variant NCLs recognized (Lake and Cavanagh, 1978), originally termed early juvenile NCL, and are now known to underlie one of the many types of late infantile variant NCLs. Patients are of diverse ethnic origin. The function of CLN6 is unknown. This chapter covers the molecular genetics of the CLN6 gene, cell biology, clinical data, morphology, disease mechanism correlations, diagnosis, clinical management, and experimental therapy.
