A generalized seizure disorder characterized by recurrent major motor seizures. The initial brief tonic phase is marked by trunk flexion followed by diffuse extension of the trunk and extremities. The clonic phase features rhythmic flexor contractions of the trunk and limbs, pupillary dilation, elevations of blood pressure and pulse, urinary incontinence, and tongue biting. This is followed by a profound state of depressed consciousness (post-ictal state) which gradually improves over minutes to hours. The disorder may be cryptogenic, familial, or symptomatic (caused by an identified disease process). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p329)

Selected genes are highlighted in orange, bookmarked
genes are green
- Chemical increases gene,
- Chemical decreases gene,
- Chemical increases and decreases gene simultaneosly,
No arrows - gene doesn't interact with the chemical.
- Gene should be increased/decreased most of the time and the chemical does it.
- Gene should be increased/decreased most of the time but the chemical does the opposite.
