A mutation in canine CLN5 causes neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis in border collie dogs.
Five genes (CLN1, CLN2, CLN3, CLN5, and CLN8) have been identified that are mutated in different forms of NCL: respectively, infantile NCL (1); late infantile NCL (2,3); classical juvenile NCL (4-6); Finnish variant late infantile NCL (7); and the progressive epilepsy with mental retardation (EPMR, also called Northern epilepsy) (8).
