DARS2 Defects in DARS2 are a cause of leukoencephalopathy with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and lactate elevation (LBSL). LBSL is an autosomal recessive disease and is defined on the basis of a highly characteristic constellation of abnormalities observed by magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy. Affected individuals develop slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia, spasticity, and dorsal column dysfunction, sometimes with a mild cognitive deficit or decline. Belongs to the class-II aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
