REVIEW
Arafat Nasser, Lisbeth Birk Møller
Background A great proportion of the variation in pain experience and chronicity is caused by heritable factors. Within the last decades several candidate genes have been discovered either increasing or decreasing pain sensitivity or the risk of chronic pain in humans. One of the most studied genes is the GCH1 gene coding for the enzyme GTP cyclohydrolase 1 (GCH1). GCH1 catalyses the initial and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4). The main function of BH4 is regulation of monoamine and nitric oxide biosynthesis, all involved in nociceptive signalling...

A young girl with L-dopa responsive dystonia showed significant improvements in motor function but had ongoing complaints of neuropsychological difficulties. A neuropsychological evaluation was undertaken to understand the nature of her difficulties. Intellectual function, attention, executive function, and academic attainment were assessed using published psychometric tests. Verbal and non-verbal reasoning was found to be age appropriate. Particular difficulties were identified with working memory, visual selective attention, dual attention, and processing speed which were having a significant impact upon the child and her family...

Whole-exome sequencing of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients has revealed that the frequency of GTP-cyclohydrolase I (GCH1) variants was significantly higher in patients than in controls. GCH1 rs11158026 was also found to increase the risk of PD. To investigate genetic contribution of dopa-responsive dystonia-related genes to PD, GCH1, and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) were tested in PD patients. A total of 859 study subjects comprising 421 patients with PD and 438 controls were recruited. For GCH1 gene, one known variant (c...

The typical clinical presentation of dopa-responsive dystonia, which is also called Segawa disease, is a young age of onset, with predominance in females, diurnal fluctuation of lower limb dystonia, and fair response to low-dose levodopa. This disease has both autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive inheritance. Autosomal dominant Segawa disease is caused by GCH1 mutation on chromosome 14q22.1-q22.2. Here, we report the case of a male patient with genetically confirmed Segawa disease and atypical presentations including no diurnal symptom fluctuation and insufficient response to levodopa...

Human studies have demonstrated a correlation between non-coding polymorphisms of 'the pain protective' (PP) haplotype in the GCH1 gene that encodes for GTP cyclohydrolase I (GTPCH1) - which leads to reduced tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) production in cell systems - and a diminished perception of experimental and clinical pain. Here we investigate whether heterozygous mutations in the GCH1 gene which lead to a profound BH4 reduction in patients with dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) have any effect on pain sensitivity...

We studied the presynaptic nigrostriatal dopaminergic function using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging of a99m Tc-TRODAT-1 (TRODAT) scan in a dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) family with the guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase 1 (GCH-1) gene mutation. Clinically, there was presentation of intrafamilial variability in the DRD family. The index patient was a 10-year-old girl with classic DRD and normal presynaptic nigrostriatal dopaminergic function. However, her grandmother, a 79-year-old woman, presented with slowly progressive Parkinson's disease (PD) without dystonic symptoms and excellent response to dopaminergic therapy for 21 years...

BACKGROUND: Dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) is a clinical syndrome characterized by early onset dystonia and a dramatic response to relatively low doses of levodopa. The autosomal dominant DRD is caused by mutations in the gene coding GTP cyclohydrolase 1 (GCH1), the enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin. We herein report a novel gene mutation causally links to DRD. SUBJECT AND METHODS: A 23-year-old woman, presented with a history of gait abnormality and leg dystonia at age 15...

Background: Dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) has largely been associated with autosomal dominant mutations in the GCH1 gene leading to GTP cyclohydrolase 1 deficiency. More recently, a deficiency in tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) has been recognized to cause DRD. This is a rare disorder resulting from genetic mutations in the TH gene on chromosome 11. The phenotype ranges from DRD with complete resolution on levodopa to infantile parkinsonism and encephalopathy only partially responsive to levodopa...

Patients with hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) are detected through newborn screening for phenylketonuria (PKU). HPA is known to be caused by deficiencies of the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) or its cofactor tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4 ). Current guidelines for the differential diagnosis of HPA would, however, miss a recently described DNAJC12 deficiency. The co-chaperone DNAJC12 is, together with the 70kDa heat shock protein (HSP70), responsible for the proper folding of PAH. All DNAJC12-deficient patients investigated to date responded to a challenge with BH4 by lowering their blood phenylalanine levels...

Objective: To elucidate the genetic cause of an Egyptian family with dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD), a childhood-onset dystonia, responding therapeutically to levodopa, which is caused by mutations in various genes. Methods: Rare variants in all coding exons of GCH1 were excluded by Sanger sequencing. Exome sequencing was applied for 1 unaffected and 2 affected family members. To investigate the functional consequences of detected genetic variants, urinary sepiapterin concentrations were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography...

BACKGROUND: In patients with GTP-cyclohydrolase deficient dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD) the occurrence of associated non-motor symptoms (NMS) is to be expected. Earlier studies report conflicting results with regard to the nature and severity of NMS. The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence of psychiatric disorders, sleep problems, fatigue and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) in a Dutch DRD cohort. METHODS: Clinical characteristics, motor symptoms, type and severity of psychiatric co-morbidity, sleep problems, fatigue and HR-QoL were assessed in DRD patients with a confirmed GCH1 mutation and matched controls...

BACKGROUND: GTP cyclohydrolase 1-deficient DOPA-responsive dystonia, caused by autosomal dominant mutation in the gene coding for GTP cyclohydrolase 1, is a rare disorder with a reported prevalence of 0.5 per million. A correct diagnosis of DRD is crucial, given that this is an exquisitely treatable neurogenetic disorder. Although genetic testing is now widely available, we hypothesize that DRD is still underdiagnosed and its prevalence underestimated. METHODS: Molecular genetic analysis of the GCH1 gene was performed in a representative cohort of 47 Serbian patients with clinical features of DRD and in their 16 available relatives...

BACKGROUND: Recent neuroimaging studies implicate nigrostriatal degeneration as a critical factor in producing late-onset parkinsonism in patients with l-dopa-responsive dystonia-causing mutations. However, postmortem anatomical studies do not reveal neurodegeneration in l-dopa-responsive dystonia patients. These contrasting findings make it unclear how parkinsonism develops in l-dopa-responsive dystonia mutation carriers. METHODS: We prospectively assessed motor dysfunction, responses to dopaminergic challenge, and dopamine neuron degeneration with aging in a validated knockin mouse model bearing a l-dopa-responsive dystonia-causing mutation found in humans...

Dopa-responsive dystonia also known as "Segawa's syndrome" was first described in 1976. The dystonia typically shows diurnal variations and is more marked toward the end of the day and improves in sleep. This entity is often misdiagnosed in the clinical setting, mostly due to the lack of awareness, and these patients are exposed to various treatment regimens and nonpharmacological measures. We present a boy being treated as dystonic cerebral palsy who showed significant improvement in dystonic symptoms with L-dopa therapy...

Biallelic DNAJC12 mutations were described in children with hyperphenylalaninemia, neurodevelopmental delay, and dystonia. We identified DNAJC12 homozygous null variants (c.187A>T;p.K63* and c.79-2A>G;p.V27Wfs*14) in two kindreds with early-onset parkinsonism. Both probands had mild intellectual disability, mild nonprogressive, motor symptoms, sustained benefit from small dose of levodopa, and substantial worsening of symptoms after levodopa discontinuation. Neuropathology (Proband-A) revealed no alpha-synuclein pathology, and substantia nigra depigmentation with moderate cell loss...
