The natural history of hereditary pancreatitis: a national series
Background and aims: The prevalence and natural history of hereditary pancreatitis (HP) remain poorly documented. The aims of this study were to assess genetic, epidemiological, clinical andExpand

A Missense Mutation in the Alpha-Actinin 1 Gene (ACTN1) Is the Cause of Autosomal Dominant Macrothrombocytopenia in a Large French Family
Inherited thrombocytopenia is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by a reduced number of blood platelets. Despite the identification of nearly 20 causative genes in the past decade,Expand

Evolution of trypsinogen activation peptides.
The activation peptide of mammalian trypsinogens contains a highly conserved tetra-aspartate sequence (D19-D20-D21-D22) preceding the K23-I24 scissile peptide bond, which is hydrolyzed as the firstExpand

Complete and rapid scanning of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene by denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (D-HPLC): major implications for genetic
Abstract. More than 900 mutations and more than 200 different polymorphisms have now been reported in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. Ten years after the cloningExpand

Association of rare chymotrypsinogen C (CTRC) gene variations in patients with idiopathic chronic pancreatitis
Extensive genetic studies of chronic pancreatitis over the past decade have highlighted the importance of a tightly regulated balance between activation and inactivation of trypsin within theExpand

Next‐generation sequencing is a credible strategy for blood group genotyping
Although several medium/high‐throughput tools have been engineered for molecular analysis of blood group genes, they usually rely on the targeting of single nucleotide polymorphisms, while otherExpand

Signal peptide variants that impair secretion of pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor (SPINK1) cause autosomal dominant hereditary pancreatitis
Variants of the SPINK1 gene encoding pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor have been described in association with chronic pancreatitis (CP). These alterations are believed to cause a loss ofExpand

Interaction between trypsinogen isoforms in genetically determined pancreatitis: Mutation E79K in cationic trypsin (PRSS1) causes increased transactivation of anionic trypsinogen (PRSS2)
The human pancreas secretes two major trypsinogen isoforms, cationic and anionic trypsinogen. To date, 19 genetic variants have been identified in the cationic trypsinogen gene (PRSS1) of patientsExpand

Validation of high-resolution DNA melting analysis for mutation scanning of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene.
High-resolution melting analysis of polymerase chain reaction products for mutation scanning, which began in the early 2000s, is based on monitoring of the fluorescence released during the melting ofExpand
