What is the mutated gene of the Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease?
CMT is caused by mutations in genes that produce proteins involved in the structure and function of either the peripheral nerve axon or the myelin sheath. Although different proteins are abnormal in different forms of CMT disease, all of the mutations affect the normal function of the peripheral nerves. The gene mutations in CMT disease are usually inherited.
