Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) in humans is in X-linked disorder, housekeeping enzyme and vital for the survival of every cell. It catalyses the oxidation of glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phospho Gluconat in the first committed step of the pentose phosphate pathway, which provides cells with pentoses and reducing power in the form of NADPH. NADPH is(More)
Mandibuloacral dysplasia with type A lipodystrophy (MADA) is a rare genetic disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion characterized by hypoplasia of the mandible and clavicles, acroosteolysis and lipodystrophy due to mutations in the LMNA or ZMPSTE24 genes. In the current study, we have investigated a consanguineous family clinically diagnosed(More)
Goldberg-Shprintzen syndrome (OMIM 609460) (GOSHS) is an autosomal recessive multiple congenital anomaly syndrome distinguished by intellectual disability, microcephaly, and dysmorphic facial characteristics. Most affected individuals also have Hirschsprung disease and/or gyral abnormalities of the brain. This syndrome has been associated with KIAA1279 gene(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Iran. In the recent years an upward trend has been observed in the Iranian population. Early detection by molecular approaches may reduce breast cancer morbidity and mortality. We provided consultation to 3,782 women diagnosed with early onset breast cancer during the past 15 years (1999-2014). To establish a data(More)
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is an inherited autosomal recessive enzymatic disorder involving the synthesis of adrenal corticosteroids. 21-Hydroxylase deficiency (21-OHD) is the most common form of the disease which is observed in more than 90% of patients with CAH. Early identification of mutations in the genes involved in this disease is critical.(More)
Background Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a frequent autosomal dominant disorder of lipoprotein metabolism. This disorder is generally caused by mutations in low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR), apolipoprotein B 100 (APOB), and proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) genes. In the present study, we aimed at identifying the common(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis type IVA (MPS IVA), also known as Morquio A, is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase (GALNS), which causes major skeletal and connective tissue abnormalities and affects multiple organ systems. In this study, one MPS IVA patient with a severe form from consanguine(More)

Pantothenate kinase- associated neurodegeneration (PKAN) syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by progressive extrapyramidal dysfunction and iron accumulation in the brain and axonal spheroids in the central nervous system. It has been shown that the disorder is caused by mutations in PANK2 gene which codes for a mitochondrial enzyme(More)
Leukocyte adhesion deficiency type 1 (LAD1) is an autosomal recessive disorder clinically characterized by severe, recurrent bacterial infections, impaired pus formation and wound healing. It is caused by mutation in the ITGB2 gene, encoding the β2 integrin subunit of the leukocyte adhesion cell molecule. This study aimed to identify disease causing(More)
