SPTLC1 is mutated in hereditary sensory neuropathy, type 1.

Hereditary sensory neuropathy type 1 (HSN1, MIM 162400; ref. 1) genetically maps to human chromosome 9q22 (refs. 2-4). We report here that the gene encoding a subunit of serine palmitoyltransferase is located within the HSN1 locus, expressed in dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and mutated in HSN1.[1]
