Septins are implicated in formation of the cytoskeleton, cell division and tumorigenesis.


- germline mutations in the gene septin 9 (SEPT9) in hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) linked to chromosome 17q25

  • hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) is an autosomal dominant recurrent neuropathy affecting the brachial plexus. HNA is triggered by environmental factors such as infection or parturition. HNA is the first monogenetic disease caused by mutations in a gene of the septin family.
