This study states that Multiplex ligation‐dependent probe amplification (MLPA) and whole‐exome sequencing (WES) were performed in 30 random CMT patients. Minigene test was utilized to check the impact of a novel grafting variation on pre‐mRNA. Essential fibroblast cell lines were set up from skin biopsies to portray the organic impacts of the novel variations p.L26R and p.S169fs. The mitochondrial structure was seen by an electron magnifying instrument. The articulation level of protein was broken down by Western Blotting. Mitochondrial elements and mitochondrial layer potential were dissected by means of immunofluorescence study. Mitochondrial ATP levels were broken down by means of bioluminescence examination . The pace of oxygen utilization was estimated with a Seahorse Bioscience XF‐96 extracellular motion analyzer. We distinguished 10 pathogenic variations in three realized CMT related qualities, including three novel variations (p.L26R, p.S169fs, c.694+1G>A) and one known pathogenic variation (p.R120W) in GDAP1. Further, we portrayed the clinical highlights of patients conveying pathogenic variations in GDAP1 and found that practically all Chinese CMT patients with GDAP1 variations present axonal sort.
