sup][5],[6] SCA1, SCA2, SCA3/MJD, SCA6, SCA7, SCA12, SCA17 and dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA) share the most prevalent form of unstable CAG repeats.
The repeat-containing regions of the genes causing SCA1, SCA2, SCA3/MJD, SCA6, SCA7, SCA8, SCA12, SCA17 and DRPLA were amplified using appropriate primer pairs with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) [Table 1].
In our study, the genetic testing of Family J, which presented clinically diagnosed SCA, was not in agreement with the known subtypes of SCA1, SCA2, SCA3/MJD, SCA6, SCA7, SCA8, SCA12, SCA17 and DRPLA.
SCA17 repeat sizes were determined using previously described methods.
Molecular diagnostic testing for SCA17 was introduced in 2005, and is therefore excluded from the analysis of the full 24-year period.
