Combined Dendritic and Axonal Deterioration Are Responsible for Motoneuronopathy in Patient-Derived Neuronal Cell Models of Chorea-Acanthocytosis.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Mar 5;21(5). Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Section for Translational Neurodegeneration "Albrecht Kossel", Department of Neurology, Universitätsmedizin Rostock, 18057 Rostock, Germany.

Chorea acanthocytosis (ChAc), an ultra-rare devastating neurodegenerative disease, is caused by mutations in the gene, which encodes for the protein chorein. Affected patients suffer from chorea, orofacial dyskinesia, epilepsy, parkinsonism as well as peripheral neuropathy. Although medium spinal neurons of the striatum are mainly affected, other regions are impaired as well over the course of the disease. Read More

O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome: Unmasking a rare atypical motor neuron disease.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2019 Jan - Feb;175(1-2):81-86. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Division of Neuromuscular Diseases, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Atypical motor neuron disease represents a rare heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders with clinical, genetic and neuroimaging features distinct from those of the classic spinal or bulbar-onset amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome represents an extremely rare lower motor neuronopathy with early adult-onset distal amyotrophy and weakness in the upper limbs with asymmetrical involvement. To add to the few case series and epidemiological and genetic studies describing this variant syndrome, our team here presents a series of seven unrelated Brazilian patients with O'Sullivan-McLeod syndrome in a detailed review of their clinical, neuroimaging, laboratory and neurophysiological findings.

Molecular Basis and Clinical Overview of McLeod Syndrome Compared With Other Neuroacanthocytosis Syndromes: A Review.

JAMA Neurol 2018 12;75(12):1554-1562

Blood Transfusion Service Zurich, Swiss Red Cross, Schlieren/Zürich, Switzerland.

Importance: McLeod syndrome, encoded by the gene XK, is a rare and progressive disease that shares important similarities with Huntington disease but has widely varied neurologic, neuromuscular, and cardiologic manifestations. Patients with McLeod syndrome have a distinct hematologic presentation with specific transfusion requirements. Because of its X-linked location, loss of the XK gene or pathogenic variants in this gene are principally associated with the McLeod blood group phenotype in male patients. Read More

Defective mitochondrial and lysosomal trafficking in chorea-acanthocytosis is independent of Src-kinase signaling.

Mol Cell Neurosci 2018 10 3;92:137-148. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Division of Neurodegenerative Diseases, Department of Neurology, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany; Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany; German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) Dresden, Dresden, Germany; Universitäts Centrum für seltene Erkrankungen, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany. Electronic address:

Mutations in the VPS13A gene leading to depletion of chorein protein are causative for Chorea Acanthocytosis (ChAc), a rare devastating disease, which is characterized by neurodegeneration mainly affecting the basal ganglia as well as deformation of erythrocytes. Studies on patient blood samples highlighted a dysregulation of Actin cytoskeleton caused by downregulation of the PI3K pathway and hyper-activation of Lyn-kinase, but to what extent these mechanisms are present and relevant in the affected neurons remains elusive. We studied the effects of the absence of chorein protein on the morphology and trafficking of lysosomal and mitochondrial compartments in ChAc patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cell-derived medium spiny neurons (MSNs).

Disturbed Red Blood Cell Structure and Function: An Exploration of the Role of Red Blood Cells in Neurodegeneration.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2018 16;5:198. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

Department of Biochemistry, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, Nijmegen, Netherlands.

The structure of red blood cells is affected by many inborn and acquired factors, but in most cases this does not seem to affect their function or survival in physiological conditions. Often, functional deficits become apparent only when they are subjected to biochemical or mechanical stress , or to pathological conditions . Our data on the misshapen red blood cells of patients with neuroacanthocytosis illustrate this general mechanism: an abnormal morphology is associated with an increase in the susceptibility of red blood cells to osmotic and mechanical stress, and alters their rheological properties.

Mouse model of chorea-acanthocytosis exhibits male infertility caused by impaired sperm motility as a result of ultrastructural morphological abnormalities in the mitochondrial sheath in the sperm midpiece.

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2018 09 21;503(2):915-920. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Department of Psychiatry, Kagoshima University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 8-35-1 Sakuragaoka, Kagoshima, 890-8520, Japan.

Chorea-acanthocytosis (ChAc) is an autosomal recessive hereditary disease characterized by neurodegeneration in the striatum and acanthocytosis caused by loss-of-function mutations in the Vacuolar Protein Sorting 13 Homolog A (VPS13A) gene, which encodes chorein. We previously produced a ChAc-model mouse with a homozygous deletion of exons 60-61 in Vps13a, which corresponded to the human disease mutation. We found that male ChAc-model mice exhibited complete infertility as a result of severely diminished sperm motility. Read More

Diseases with a choreic phenotype can be due to a variety of genetic etiologies. As testing for Huntington's disease (HD) becomes more available in previously resource-limited regions, it is becoming apparent that there are patients in these areas with other rare genetic conditions which cause an HD-like phenotype. Documentation of the presence of these conditions is important in order to provide appropriate diagnostic and clinical care for these populations. Read More

Neurons, Erythrocytes and Beyond -The Diverse Functions of Chorein.

Neurosignals 2017 28;25(1):117-126. Epub 2017 Nov 28.

Department of Biochemistry, University of Crete Medical School, Heraklion, Greece.

Chorea-acanthocytosis (ChAc), a neurodegenerative disease, results from loss-of-function-mutations of the chorein-encoding gene VPS13A. Affected patients suffer from a progressive movement disorder including chorea, parkinsonism, dystonia, tongue protrusion, dysarthria, dysphagia, tongue and lip biting, gait impairment, progressive distal muscle wasting, weakness, epileptic seizures, cognitive impairment, and behavioral changes. Those pathologies may be paralleled by erythrocyte acanthocytosis. Read More

[Neuroacanthocytosis diagnosis with new generation whole exome sequencing].

Orv Hetil 2017 Oct;158(42):1681-1684

Klinikai Központ, Orvosi Genetikai Intézet, Pécsi Tudományegyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Pécs, József A. u. 7., 7623.

In a patient with marked symptoms of Huntington disease after the huntingtin testing, which gave normal result, a whole exome sequencing (WES) has been performed based on an international collaboration. A homozygous G>A nucleotid change in the exon 34 of the VPS13A gene has been detected with WES, a mutation resulting in a premature stop codon at the position 1301. This change is a known pathogenic mutation. Read More

Yeast and other lower eukaryotic organisms for studies of Vps13 proteins in health and disease.

Traffic 2017 11 24;18(11):711-719. Epub 2017 Sep 24.

Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland.

Human Vps13 proteins are associated with several diseases, including the neurodegenerative disorder Chorea-acanthocytosis (ChAc), yet the biology of these proteins is still poorly understood. Studies in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Dictyostelium discoideum, Tetrahymena thermophila and Drosophila melanogaster point to the involvement of Vps13 in cytoskeleton organization, vesicular trafficking, autophagy, phagocytosis, endocytosis, proteostasis, sporulation and mitochondrial functioning. Recent findings show that yeast Vps13 binds to phosphatidylinositol lipids via 4 different regions and functions at membrane contact sites, enlarging the list of Vps13 functions. Read More

Lithium Sensitivity of Store Operated Ca2+ Entry and Survival of Fibroblasts Isolated from Chorea-Acanthocytosis Patients.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2017 11;42(5):2066-2077. Epub 2017 Aug 11.

Department of Molecular Medicine II, Heinrich Heine University Duesseldorf, Duesseldorf, Germany.

Background: The widely expressed protein chorein fosters activation of the phosphoinositide 3 kinase (PI3K) pathway thus supporting cell survival. Loss of function mutations of the chorein encoding gene VPS13A (vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 13A) causes chorea-acanthocytosis (ChAc), a neurodegenerative disorder paralleled by deformations of erythrocytes. In mice, genetic knockout of chorein leads to enhanced neuronal apoptosis. Read More

Disruption of GABA(A)-mediated intracortical inhibition in patients with chorea-acanthocytosis.

Neurosci Lett 2017 Jul 20;654:107-110. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Department of Neurosciences, Reproductive Sciences and Odontostomatology, Federico II University of Naples, Via S. Pansini, 5 IT-80131 Napoli, Italy.

Chorea-acanthocytosis (Ch-Ac) is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by adult-onset chorea, acanthocytes in the peripheral blood, and Huntington's disease-like neuropsychiatric symptoms. Animal studies have shown mutation-related dysregulated cortical gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic inhibitory networks in its pathophysiology. Herein we found that in patients with Ch-Ac there is a striking alteration of intracortical inhibitory circuits detected by using paired pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation protocols. Read More

Stepwise partitioning of Xp21: a profiling method for XK deletions causative of the McLeod syndrome.

Transfusion 2017 09 28;57(9):2125-2135. Epub 2017 May 28.

Blood Transfusion Service Zürich, Swiss Red Cross (SRC), Zürich-Schlieren, Switzerland.

Background: McLeod syndrome (MLS) is hematologically defined by the absence of the red blood cell (RBC) antigen Kx on the transmembrane RBC protein, XK, representing a highly specific diagnostic marker. Direct molecular assessment of XK therefore represents a desirable diagnostic tool. Whereas pathogenic point mutations may be simply identified, partial and complete deletions of XK on Xp21.
