The Movement Disorder Society Genetic mutation database (MDSGene) aims to provide a comprehensive, systematic overview of published data on movement disorder patients reported to carry causative gene mutations. MDSGene currently contains data on over 1000 different mutations in over 6000 movement disorder patients extracted from over 1000 publications. For more information, visit the MDSGene website.
Disease categories of interest with available genetic and clinical data include:
- Chorea (Benign hereditary chorea) (CHOR)
- Dystonia (DYT)
- Dystonia/parkinsonism (DYT/PARK)
- Hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP)
- Parkinsonism (PARK)
- Paroxysmal movement disorders (PxMD)
- Primary familial brain calcification (PFBC) – associated movement disorder
Data continues to be added to MDSGene.
