Abstract: Mutations in the gene encoding the gamma2 subunit of the gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor (GABRG2) have been reported to cause childhood absence epilepsy (CAE), febrile seizures (FS), and generalized epilepsy with FS plus (GEFS+). The authors analyzed GABRG2 in 47 unrelated patients with CAE, FS, and GEFS+ and identified a novel mutation that cosegregated with FS. Electrophysiologic studies demonstrated altered current desensitization and reduced benzodiazepine enhancement in mutant receptors.
