    ..Identifying this highly characteristic phenotype is important due to the low recurrence risk compared with the other (recessive) cerebellar dysplasias and the apparent lack of non-neurological medical issues. ..

    ..In summary, CSPP1 mutations are a major cause of the Joubert-Jeune phenotype in humans; however, the mechanism by which these mutations lead to both JBTS and JATD remains unknown. ..

    ..Here we present an update on the genetic causes for cerebellar malformations that can be recognized by neuroimaging and clinical characteristics during the prenatal and postnatal periods. ..

    ..We conclude that this approach significantly increases screening efficiency and accuracy at reduced cost and can be applied in a wide range of organisms. ..

    ..In contrast to other disorders caused by dysregulated mTOR signaling associated with focal or global brain overgrowth, impaired TBCK function results in progressive loss of brain volume. ..

    ..Detailed understanding of the TRAPP-opathies will illuminate the role of membrane protein transport in human disease. ..
