    Division of Molecular Biology and Human Genetics, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
    BMC Med Genet 10:105. 2009
    ..In the present study South African PD patients were screened for mutations in DJ-1 and we aimed to investigate the functional significance of a novel 16 bp deletion variant identified in one patient...
  2. ncbi FAME 3: a novel form of progressive myoclonus and epilepsy
    J A Carr
    Division of Neurology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa
    Neurology 68:1382-9. 2007
    ..Familial adult myoclonic epilepsy (FAME) is associated with myoclonus, tremor, and rare seizures, and is a nonprogressive disorder linked to the FAME 1 locus. A similar disorder has been linked to the FAME 2 locus...
  3. doi Classifying myoclonus: a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma
    Jonathan Carr
    Division of Neurology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa
    Parkinsonism Relat Disord 18:S174-6. 2012
    ..The role of subcortical structures in influencing electrophysiological phenomena is poorly understood, and merits further investigation...
  4. ncbi Early pubertal female rats are more resistant than males to 6-hydroxydopamine neurotoxicity and behavioural deficits: a possible role for trophic factors
    I S Pienaar
    Division of Medical Physiology, University of Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa
    Restor Neurol Neurosci 25:513-26. 2007
    ..The present study focused on possible gender differences in vulnerability to 6-OHDA during the early pubertal period when the effects exerted by gonadal steroid hormones are unpronounced...
