OBJECTIVE We investigated a large consanguineous Moroccan family with progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) consistent with autosomal recessive inheritance, to describe the phenotype and identify the causal gene. METHODS We recorded the clinical course of the disease and the response to drug therapy, whereas carefully excluding known causes of progressive(More)
The synthesis of interferon-beta (IFNbeta) and IFN-inducible factors elicited by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) depends on the transcriptional activity of interferon regulatory factor 3 (IRF-3) downstream of Toll-like receptor-4 (TLR4). To examine the ability of human newborns to mount TLR4-mediated IRF-3-dependent responses, we analyzed the pattern of genes(More)
MOTIVATION Because of its low cost, amplicon sequencing, also known as ultra-deep targeted sequencing, is now becoming widely used in oncology for detection of actionable mutations, i.e. mutations influencing cell sensitivity to targeted therapies. Amplicon sequencing is based on the polymerase chain reaction amplification of the regions of interest, a(More)
