Purpose: To further evaluate the previously shown linkage of absence epilepsy (AE) to 2q36, both in human and WAG/Rij absence rat models, a 160-kb region at 2q36 containing eight genes with expressions in the brain was targeted in a case-control association study involving 205 Turkish patients with AE and 219 controls.
