Notes A database from the MITOchondrial DYNamics variation portal and the gene variant databases from the: Variants involved in Inherited Peripheral Neuropathies are also collected by the IPNMDB. All variants submitted here will be shared with the IPNMDB.
GDAP1, which is involved in the Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), the most commonly inherited peripheral neuropathy, encodes a protein anchored to the mitochondrial outer membrane. The phenotypic presentations of patients carrying GDAP1 variants are heterogeneous, making it difficult to determine genotype-phenotype correlations, since the majority of the variants have been found in only a few unrelated patients.
