Category: Nervous system / Neurologic - Associated with the brain, spinal cord and nerves

Gene: Leucine rich repeat LGI family member 2 on Chromosome 3

Variant Detected: Base Substitution c.1552A>T p.Lys518STOP

Severity: Scale 4 has a high degree of severity. It generally causes a decreased quality of life and may also decrease the life expectancy.

Mode of Inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Test Overview: The resulting epilepsy onsets at around seven weeks (equivalent to human two years), and remits by four months (human eight years), versus onset after age eight in the majority of human patients with LGI1 mutations. Finally, we show that Lgi2 is expressed highly in the immediate post-natal period until halfway through pruning, unlike Lgi1, which is expressed in the latter part of pruning and beyond.
