In addition, some studies suggest that spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 (SCA1) and other forms of spinocerebellar ataxias as well as fragile X–associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) may be associated with MSA-like presentations [128–132]. A second genetic approach focused on the α-synuclein gene because of the fundamental role of α-synuclein inclusion pathology in MSA [3,87,101]. All previous studies (including sequencing of the SNCA coding sequence, gene dosage measurements, microsatellite testing, and haplotype studies) failed to identify significant associations of SNCA variants with MSA [133–136].
