Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy is an autosomal dominant disorder resulting from an unusual genetic mechanism. The mutation, a deletion of 3.3 kb subtelomeric repeats, appears to disrupt the regional regulation of 4q35 g ene expression. The specific gene(s)responsible for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy have not been identified. However, the(More)
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) may be a new member of the class of neuromuscular diseases (NMD) due to defects in the nuclear envelope. Unlike other NMDs with primary defects in nuclear envelope proteins, however, FSHD may result from inappropriate chromatin interactions at the envelope. 3D Immuno-FISH and a novel method of 3D by 2D analysis(More)
The SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) program is an ambitious research and development initiative to design the future European air traffic management (ATM) system. The study of the behavior of ATM systems using agent-based modeling and simulation tools can help the development of new methods to improve their performance. This paper presents an(More)
The acrofacial dysostoses (AFD) are a genetically heterogeneous group of inherited disorders with craniofacial and limb abnormalities. Rodriguez syndrome is a severe, usually perinatal lethal AFD, characterized by severe retrognathia, oligodactyly and lower limb abnormalities. Rodriguez syndrome has been proposed to be a severe form of Nager syndrome, a(More)
Short-rib polydactyly syndromes (SRPS) and Asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (ATD) or Jeune Syndrome are recessively inherited skeletal ciliopathies characterized by profound skeletal abnormalities and are frequently associated with polydactyly and multiorgan system involvement. SRPS are produced by mutations in genes that participate in the formation and(More)
Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) is the only gene known to cause achondroplasia (ACH), hypochondroplasia (HCH), and thanatophoric dysplasia types I and II (TD I and TD II). A second, as yet unidentified, gene also causes HCH. In this study, we used sequencing analysis to determine the frequency of FGFR3 mutations for each phenotype in 324 cases(More)
