Autosomal recessive mitochondrial ataxic syndrome due to mitochondrial polymerase gamma mutations.

POLG mutations causing ophthalmoplegia, sensorimotor polyneuropathy, ataxia, and deafness.
M Mancuso, M Filosto, M Bellan, R Liguori, P Montagna, A Baruzzi, S DiMauro, V Carelli,

The authors identified two novel heterozygous missense transitions in the gene for the mitochondrial polymerase gammaA subunit (POLG) in a family with an autosomal recessive syndrome comprising progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO), polyneuropathy, ataxia, sensorineural hearing loss, and affective disorders. These mutations were not detected in 120 healthy control subjects.
