1. Muscular dystrophy in a patient with multiple sclerosis. Another "double-trouble"?

    Multiple sclerosis and related disorders 4(4):342 (2015) PMID 26195054

    Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is considered a relatively common muscular dystrophy affecting approximately 1:15,000 individuals in the general population. Single case reports have described the rare co-occurrence of FSHD with other hereditary neuromuscular disorders, leading to a...
  2. Spinal cord involvement in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy: a clinical and MRI study.

    Acta Neurologica Belgica 115(2):141 (2015) PMID 24988899

    Concomitant central nervous system (CNS) involvement in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is rare. Although the spinal nerve roots may present MRI abnormalities in CIDP, hitherto, the spinal cord has been investigated in a single study. We retrospectively investiga...
  3. Expanding schwannomatosis phenotype.

    Journal of Neuro-Oncology 122(3):607 (2015) PMID 25663272

  4. A Massive Expansion of Effector Genes Underlies Gall-Formation in the Wheat Pest Mayetiola destructor

    Current Biology 25(5):613 (2015) PMID 25660540

    Gall-forming arthropods are highly specialized herbivores that, in combination with their hosts, produce extended phenotypes with unique morphologies [1]. Many are economically important, and others have improved our understanding of ecology and adaptive radiation [2]. However, the mec...

  6. Early onset degenerative dementias: demographic characteristics and etiologic classification in a tertiary referral center.

    Acta Neurologica Belgica 115(1):27 (2015) PMID 24878660

    Early onset dementia (EOD) is a major diagnostic challenge as it often presents with atypical features and may be attributed to treatable diseases. Primary degenerative dementias (Alzheimer's disease-AD, frontotemporal lobar degeneration-FTLD, Lewy body dementia-LBD), although traditionally cons...

  8. OrthoDB v8: update of the hierarchical catalog of orthologs and the underlying free software.

    Nucleic Acids Research 43(Database issue):D250 (2015) PMID 25428351

    Orthology, refining the concept of homology, is the cornerstone of evolutionary comparative studies. With the ever-increasing availability of genomic data, inference of orthology has become instrumental for generating hypotheses about gene functions crucial to many studies. This update of the Or...

  13. Internal carotid artery floating thrombus in relapsing polychondritis.

    Journal of Neuroimaging 25(1):142 (2015) PMID 25729816

    Relapsing polychondritis is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of cartilaginous tissues. It may be associated with systemic and cerebral vasculitis and exceptionally with ischemic stroke. Brain infarction associated with internal carotid artery thrombus, in a setting of rela...

  16. Lucilia cuprina genome unlocks parasitic fly biology to underpin future interventions.

    Nature Communications 6:7344 (2015) PMID 26108605 PMCID PMC4491171

    Lucilia cuprina is a parasitic fly of major economic importance worldwide. Larvae of this fly invade their animal host, feed on tissues and excretions and progressively cause severe skin disease (myiasis). Here we report the sequence and annotation of the 458-megabase draft genome of Lucilia cup...
  17. Gene age predicts the strength of purifying selection acting on gene expression variation in humans.

    The American Journal of Human Genetics 95(6):660 (2014) PMID 25480033 PMCID PMC4259975

    Gene expression levels can be subject to selection. We hypothesized that the age of gene origin is associated with expression constraints, given that it affects the level of gene integration into the functional cellular environment. By studying the genetic variation affecting gene expression lev...
