Abstract

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is the most common form of idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGE) that account for about 5-10% of all types of epilepsies. The first putative locus termed EJM1 is on the human leucocyte antigen (HLA-II) region of chromosome 6p21.3. Interestingly, the EJM1 region includes the Transporter associated with antigen processing 1 (TAP- 1 ) gene encoding the TAP-1, and previous studies have reported associations between HLA-II polymorphisms and different types of epilepsy. In this study, we report an association between two TAP-1 functional polymorphisms the I333V and the D637G and most common IGE in Tunisian population, but we fail to find significant results in Caucasian with JME.
