18179903 No CHRNA1, CHRNB1, or CHRND mutations were detected, but a homozygous RAPSN frameshift mutation, c.1177-1178delAA, was identified in a family with three children affected with lethal fetal akinesia sequence.
16931511 Screening for the common mutation RAPSN N88K facilitates targeted genetic analysis in congenital myasthenic syndromes.
15482960 The patient presents with an early onset sporadic congenital myasthenic syndrome was found The mutation RAPSN N88K was found heterozygously to a large deletion of about 4.5 kb disrupting the RAPSN gene.
15282317 These results provide the first experimental evidence that rapsyn is a direct sequence-specific target of Kaiso and delta-catenin.
15252722 recombination events may have occurred within the rapsyn gene and that this may have implications in the phenotypic expression of postsynaptic congenital myasthenic syndrome
15036330 Rapsyn is essential for clustering the acetylcholine receptor at the postsynaptic membrane of the neuromuscular junction.
12807980 Twenty patients with the recessive form of congenital myasthenic syndrome with no mutations in the AChR subunit have been tested for this gene; five patients have been found to carry mutations.
12730725 Four patients from four different families with RAPSN mutations and congenital myasthenic syndrome
12651869 E-box mutations in the RAPSN promoter region may have a role in congenital myasthenic syndrome
