Molecular Abnormalities Suggest Charcot–Marie–Tooth Starts During Embryonic Development

Researchers have identified molecular abnormalities in cells found during embryonic nerve development that are common to patients with demyelinating Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMT) disease caused by three different mutations. The findings advance the understanding of how the disease develops, and “further studies focusing on the common molecular signature in demyelinating CMT could reveal a…
