To contribute further to the classification of three CFTR amino acid changes (p.I148T, p.R74W and p.D1270N) either as CF or CBAVD-causing mutations or as neutral variations. The CFTR genes from individuals who carried at least one of these changes were extensively scanned by a well established DGGE assay followed by direct sequencing and familial(More)
By performing extensive scanning of whole coding and flanking sequences of the CFTR (Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator) gene, we had previously identified point mutations in 167 out of 182 (91.7%) males with isolated congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD). Conventional PCR-based methods of mutation analysis do not detect(More)
Available commercial kits only screen for the most common cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutations causing classic cystic fibrosis and for the Tn variant in IVS8. However, full scanning of CFTR is needed for the diagnosis of patients with cystic fibrosis or CFTR-related disorders (including congenital bilateral absence of the vas(More)
In this report, we present updated spectrum and frequency of mutations of the CFTR gene that are responsible for cystic fibrosis (CF) in Languedoc-Roussillon (L-R), the southwestern part of France. A total of 75 different mutations were identified by DGGE in 215 families, accounting for 97.6% of CF genes and generating 88 different mutational genotypes. The(More)
In European populations, large rearrangements contribute to approximately 2% of CF mutations. Here, we reported a novel duplication, the CFTRdup2, identified in a patient heterozygous for Phe508del and suffering from a mild CF. Using a combination of functional tests, we studied the impact of duplication/deletion on CFTR expression. We showed that the copy(More)
Through the description of the process of psychotherapy of an obsessional patient by a psychiatric resident under supervision a number of factors which impact on treatment response and outcome are focused upon. The aim is to elicit the multiple factors impinging upon a single treatment situation with some broader implications for research as well as(More)
By performing extensive scanning of whole coding and flanking sequences of the cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, we had previously identified the CF-causing mutations in black South African patients of different ethnic groups suspected with the disease. Of ten samples analyzed, there were six remaining that had either one(More)
The detection of two frequent CFTR disease-causing variations in the context of a newborn screening program (NBS) usually leads to the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (CF) and a relevant genetic counseling in the family. In the present study, CF-causing variants p.Phe508del (F508del) and c.3140-26A>G (3272-26A>G) were identified on a neonate with positive(More)
