26657971 This study does not support a contribution of rare missense CLN8 variations to ASD susceptibility in the Japanese population.
23160995 This study highlights a close interaction between CLN5/CLN8 proteins, and their role in sphingolipid metabolism. Our findings suggest that CLN5p/CLN8p most likely are positive modulators of CerS1 and/or CerS2.
22964447 A missense mutation at the CLN8 gene (763C>G)has been identified in 3 consanguineous Israeli-Arab patients. The phenotype in 2 of them is milder than that of their cousin who has typical neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis.
22388998 CLN8 is a candidate modifier gene for GD1. Increased expression may protect against severe GD1.It may function as a protective sphingolipid sensor and/or in glycosphingolipid trafficking.
19807737 a novel, large CLN8 gene deletion c.544-2566_590del2613 in a Turkish family with a slightly more severe phenotype of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinose was described.
19431184 CLN8 plays a role in cell proliferation during neuronal differentiation and in protection against cell death.
19201763 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17129765 patients with CLN8 mutations from Italy. In these patients, the onset of epilepsy occurred between 3 and 6 years of age, with myoclonic, tonic-clonic, and atypical absence seizures. Electroencephalograms revealed focal and/or generalized abnormalities.
