HTRA1-Related Cerebral Small Vessel Disease: A Review of the Literature Cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL) is clinically characterized by early-onset dementia, stroke, spondylosis deformans, and alopecia.What is the causative gene for CARASIL?
Cerebral autosomal recessive arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL) is a rare hereditary cerebral artery disease. The HtrA serine protease 1 (HTRA1) gene has been identified as the causative gene of CARASIL. Here, we report a novel mutation in the HTRA1 gene in a CA …What is the HTRA1 gene?
Learn more The HTRA1 gene provides instructions for making a protein that is found in many of the body's organs and tissues. This protein is a type of enzyme called a serine protease, which has an active center that cuts (cleaves) other proteins into smaller pieces.What is the difference between CARASIL and htra1-related CSVD?
Although patients with heterozygous HTRA1-related CSVD (symptomatic carriers) are reported to have a milder form of CARASIL, little is known about the clinical and genetic differences between the two diseases.
