This study aimed to elucidate the observed variable phenotypic expressivity associated with NRXN1 (Neurexin 1) haploinsufficiency by analyses of the largest cohort of patients with NRXN1 exonic deletions described to date and by comprehensively reviewing all comparable copy number variants in all disease cohorts that have been published in the peer reviewed(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a common lethal genetic disease caused by autosomal recessive mutations of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) chloride channel that belongs to the ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) family of transporters. The class III CF mutations G551D and G1349D are located within the "signature" sequence LSGGQ and LSHGH of(More)
The increasing use of array-comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) to identify copy number variations (CNVs) in patients with developmental delay (DD), mental retardation and/or dysmorphic features has allowed the recent recognition of numerous genomic imbalances, including the 15q13.3 microdeletion. Patients with this microdeletion generally present(More)
BACKGROUND CHARGE syndrome is a rare, usually sporadic disorder of multiple congenital anomalies ascribed to a CHD7 gene mutation in 60% of cases. Although the syndrome is well characterised in children, only one series of 10 fetuses with CHARGE syndrome has been reported to date. Therefore, we performed a detailed clinicopathological survey in our series(More)
The diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia is based on detection of the Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome or the BCR-ABL gene. The junction present in the transcript may vary according to the reciprocal translocation t(9;22)(q34;11). Identification of the transcript (p190, p210 or p230) does not reveal the type of junction but this information is very important(More)
We report on a 22-year-old woman with features of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), tricho-dento-osseous (TDO) syndrome and intellectual disability. Whole genome oligonucleotide microarray analysis revealed a copy number gain of 3 Mb in 7q32.3-q33 and a loss of 3.4 Mb in 17q21.33-q22. FISH analysis showed that the third copy of 7q32 was inserted into the long(More)
Proximal region of chromosome 15 long arm is rich in duplicons that, define five breakpoints (BP) for 15q rearrangements. 15q11.2 microdeletion between BP1 and BP2 has been previously associated with developmental delay and atypical psychological patterns. This region contains four highly-conserved and non-imprinted genes: NIPA1, NIPA2, CYFIP1, TUBGCP5. Our(More)
Disorders of Sex Development (DSD) are a heterogeneous group of disorders affecting gonad and/or genito-urinary tract development and usually the endocrine-reproductive system. A genetic diagnosis is made in only around 20% of these cases. The genetic causes of 46,XX-SRY negative testicular DSD as well as ovotesticular DSD are poorly defined. Duplications(More)
INTRODUCTION CHARGE syndrome is a multisystem disorder that, in addition to Kallmann syndrome/isolated hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism, has been associated with anterior pituitary hypoplasia (APH). However, structural abnormalities such as an ectopic posterior pituitary (EPP) have not yet been described in such patients. OBJECTIVE The aims of the study(More)
Epigenetic dysregulation has emerged as a recurring mechanism in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. Two such disorders, CHARGE and Kabuki syndromes, result from loss of function mutations in chromodomain helicase DNA-binding protein 7 (CHD7LOF) and lysine (K) methyltransferase 2D (KMT2DLOF), respectively. Although these two syndromes are(More)
