Özet

promoting

the differentiation and transition of radial glial cells to basal

progenitors and neurons [1]. DOCK7 also regulates tangential neuroblast

migration in the postnatal mouse forebrain [2].

Recently, a new phenotype of early infantile epileptic encephalopathies

(EIEE23, MIM: 615859) was reported in 3 girls from 2

families with 4 different compound heterozygous truncating mutations

in DOCK7 [3]. Here, we report a boy with infantile onset well-controlled

non-encephalopathic epilepsy and severe neurodevelopmental

delay associated with a novel homozygous truncating mutation in

DOCK7.
