BRE and association with ELP4

The genetics of Benign Rolandic Epilepsy (BRE) is complicated and now genetic variants predisposing to BRE have been discovered to date. This study now shows association of the BRE phenotype and phenotype of centrotemporal spikes (CTS) with an intronic SNP in ELP4 (Elongator Protein Complex 4) in a genome-wide linkage scan and subsequent confirmation in a small association study.
