GJA12 mutations in children with recessive hypomyelinating leukoencephalopathy.

Pelizaeus-Merzbacher-like disease (PMLD) is an inherited hypomyelinating leukoencephalopathy with onset in early infancy. Like Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD), PMLD is characterized clinically by nystagmus, cerebellar ataxia, and spasticity, due to a permanent lack of myelin deposition in the brain. Mutations in the GJA12 gene, encoding connexin 47 (Cx47), were recently reported in five children with autosomal recessive PMLD.
