    Department of Medical Genetics, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305 8575, Japan
    Epilepsy Res 70:S190-8. 2006
    ..To find a true association, larger sample size and newer methodologic refinements are recommended...

    Junko Nakayama
    Department of Medical Genetics, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Ibaraki Ken, 305 8575, Japan
    Neurosci Lett 343:117-20. 2003
    ..None of these polymorphic alleles were significantly associated with FS. Our results indicate that genomic variations of GABRG2 are not likely to be substantially involved in the etiology of FS in the Japanese population...
  3. ncbi request reprint A nonsense mutation of the MASS1 gene in a family with febrile and afebrile seizures
    Junko Nakayama
    Department of Medical Genetics, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305 8575, Japan
    Ann Neurol 52:654-7. 2002
    ..Our results suggest that a loss-of-function mutation in MASS1 might be responsible for the seizure phenotypes, though it is not likely that MASS1 contributed to the cause of febrile seizures in most of our families...
  4. ncbi request reprint Possible association between a haplotype of the GABA-A receptor alpha 1 subunit gene (GABRA1) and mood disorders
    Yasue Horiuchi
    Department of Medical Genetics, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan
    Biol Psychiatry 55:40-5. 2004
    ..The GABRA1 gene encodes one of the subunits of GABA-A receptor and is located on human chromosome 5q34-q35, which is a region reportedly linked to mood disorders. We examined the GABRA1 gene as a candidate for mood disorders...
  5. ncbi request reprint Molecular genetics of febrile seizures
    Nobuaki Iwasaki
    Departments of Pediatrics, Institute of Clinical Medicine, and Medical Genetics, Institute of Basic Medicine, University of Tsukuba, Japan
    Epilepsia 43:32-5. 2002
    ..In contrast to the FEB1, FEB2, and GEFS+ genetic loci, linkage to FEB4 was suggested in nuclear FS families, indicating that FEB4 may be the most common linkage locus in FS families...

    Department of Medical Genetics, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba City, Ibaraki, Japan
    J Allergy Clin Immunol 115:548-54. 2005
    ..We previously identified regions of chromosomes 1p, 4q, and 9q linked to SAR in 48 families (188 members) identified through children with SAR against orchard grass pollens...

    Ryuta Tanaka
    Department of Child Health, Institute of Clinical Medicine, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan

    Neurosci Lett 329:249-51. 2002
    ..Our study failed to provide evidence supporting a causal relation between the SCN2A mutation/polymorphism and FS or FS associated with afebrile seizures including GEFS+ in the Japanese population...
