Abstract

in English, Russian

The review presents modern data on the genetics of idiopathic generalized epilepsies. Identified genes encode different structures of neurons, including voltage-dependent channels, receptors of neurotransmitters, protein-associated ion channels and synaptic proteins. The authors describe already identified genes, which are a causative factor of idiopathic generalized epilepsies and discuss further prospects of using molecular genetic studies.
