About Myotonia

Myotonia is related to myotonia, potassium-aggravated and neuromyotonia and axonal neuropathy, autosomal recessive. An important gene associated with Myotonia is CLCN1 (Chloride Voltage-Gated Channel 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Neuropathic Pain-Signaling in Dorsal Horn Neurons and G-Beta Gamma Signaling. The drugs Mexiletine and Lamotrigine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, heart and occipital lobe, and related phenotypes are growth/size/body region and muscle
