High impact information on SFXN5

  • Sequence analysis of 2p13 linked individuals affected with PD did not reveal any potentially pathogenic mutations within SFXN5, suggesting SFXN5 does not correspond to PARK3 [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SFXN5

  • Northern blot analysis revealed a single SFXN5 transcript of approximately 4.3 kb, which was primarily expressed in the brain [1].
