The RASopathies: developmental syndromes of Ras/MAPK pathway dysregulation.
The Ras/mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway is essential in the regulation of the cell cycle, differentiation, growth and cell senescence, all of which are critical to normal development.Expand

Germline Mutations in Genes Within the MAPK Pathway Cause Cardio-facio-cutaneous Syndrome
Cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome is a sporadic developmental disorder involving characteristic craniofacial features, cardiac defects, ectodermal abnormalities, and developmental delay. WeExpand

Diversity, parental germline origin, and phenotypic spectrum of de novo HRAS missense changes in Costello syndrome
Activating mutations in v‐Ha‐ras Harvey rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (HRAS) have recently been identified as the molecular cause underlying Costello syndrome (CS). To further investigate theExpand

Germline loss-of-function mutations in LZTR1 predispose to an inherited disorder of multiple schwannomas
Constitutional SMARCB1 mutations at 22q11.23 have been found in ∼50% of familial and <10% of sporadic schwannomatosis cases. We sequenced highly conserved regions along 22q from eight individualsExpand

Genomic alterations that contribute to the development of isolated and non-isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia
Background Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a life threatening birth defect. Most of the genetic factors that contribute to the development of CDH remain unidentified. Objective To identifyExpand
