Trehalose attenuates the gait ataxia and gliosis of spinocerebellar ataxia type 17 mice.
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 17 (SCA17) is caused by CAG/CAA repeat expansion on the gene encoding a general transcription factor, TATA-box-binding protein (TBP). The CAG repeat expansion leads to the reduced solubility of polyglutamine TBP and induce

From mild ataxia to huntington disease phenocopy: the multiple faces of spinocerebellar ataxia 17.
Introduction. Spinocerebellar ataxia 17 (SCA 17) is a rare autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA) caused by a CAG/CAA expansion in the TBP gene, reported from a limited number of countries. It is a very heterogeneous ADCA characterized by ataxia

Parkinsonism in spinocerebellar ataxia.
Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) presents heterogeneous clinical phenotypes, and parkinsonism is reported in diverse SCA subtypes. Both levodopa responsive Parkinson disease (PD) like phenotype and atypical parkinsonism have been described especially in

Role of glutathione S-transferases in the spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 clinical phenotype.
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 2 (SCA2) is a neurodegenerative and incurable hereditary disorder caused by a CAG repeat expansion mutation on ATXN2 gene. The identification of reliable biochemical markers of disease severity is of paramount significance

Decreasing fall risk in spinocerebellar ataxia.
[Purpose] Spinocerebellar ataxia consists of a group of autosomal dominant disorders that cause progressive degeneration, mainly in the cerebellum and its connections. Falls, which are a significant concern of this condition, reduce patients' mobilit

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 in Chinese Han.
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10; OMIM #603516) is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia with variably associated extracerebellar signs.(1,2) SCA10 is caused by an expanded noncoding pentanucleotide repeat in ATXN10, which normally ranges from

Spinocerebellar ataxia-10 with paranoid schizophrenia.
Spino-cerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10) is an autosomal dominant disorder that is characterized by cerebellar ataxia, seizures and nystagmus with a fragmented pursuit. Schizophrenia has been reported with SCAs 1 and 2 yet in SCA 10, psychiatric manif
