Thirty-eight mutations and seven polymorphisms have recently been reported in the genes underlying the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) including 11 new mutations described here. A total of 114 mutations and 28 polymorphisms have now been described in the five human genes identified which cause NCL. Thirty-eight mutations are recorded for CLN1/PPT; 40 for CLN2/TTP-1, 31 for CLN3, four for CLN5, one for CLN8. Two mutations have been described in animal genes (cln8/mnd, CTSD). All mutations in NCL genes are contained in the NCL Mutation Database (
