Purpose:Single-nucleotide polymorphism microarray analysis identifies copy-number variants and blocks of homozygosity, suggestive of consanguinity or uniparental disomy. The purpose of this study was to validate chromosomal microarray analysis for the identification of uniparental disomy in a clinical laboratory.Methods:In phase I of this retrospective(More)
Patients with terminal deletions of chromosome 14 usually share a number of clinical features. The syndrome is thought not to be associated with multiple congenital anomalies. We report on a patient having a terminal deletion of about 3.2 Mb, with the breakpoint in 14q32.32. Multiple health problems led to his early death. By molecular techniques (array(More)
Osteogenesis imperfecta type VI (OI type VI) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the SERPINF1 gene that encodes pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF). Cystinosis is an autosomal recessive lysosomal transport disorder caused by mutations in the CTNS gene. Both SERPINF1 and CTNS are located on chromosome 17p13.3. We describe an(More)
Glycosphingolipids are ubiquitous constituents of eukaryotic plasma membranes, and their sialylated derivatives, gangliosides, are the major class of glycoconjugates expressed by neurons. Deficiencies in their catabolic pathways give rise to a large and well-studied group of inherited disorders, the lysosomal storage diseases. Although many(More)
Wilson disease (WND) is an autosomal recessive condition that results in accumulation of copper in the liver and brain when a membrane bound copper transporter, ATP7B, is defective. ATP7B is expressed in hepatic, brain and kidney cells, and a defect can lead to liver, neurological and renal damage in WND patients. Presentation is variable with a broad range(More)
Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins (ACDMPV) is a lethal lung developmental disorder caused by heterozygous point mutations or genomic deletion copy-number variants (CNVs) of FOXF1 or its upstream enhancer involving fetal lung-expressed long noncoding RNA genes LINC01081 and LINC01082. Using custom-designed array comparative(More)
Ring chromosome 14 is a rare cytogenetic disorder. Individuals with r(14) generally have developmental delay and seizures. Other features include hypotonia, microcephaly, mild facial dysmorphism, and retinal pigmentation. Most of these features are also found in patients with linear terminal deletions of chromosome 14, except for seizures and retinal(More)
Blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a complex dysgenesis of the eyelids and premature ovarian insufficiency. FOXL2 located at 3q22.3, encoding a forkhead transcription factor, is the only gene known to be responsible for BPES. We describe a patient diagnosed with BPES with(More)
Mosaicism with two cell lines having different rearrangements of the same chromosome is rare. Only a few cases of mosaicism have been described in association with chromosomal inverted duplication deletion (inv dup del) rearrangements. A well-established mechanism of formation of inv dup del rearrangements involves a dicentric intermediate, which undergoes(More)
An interstitial deletion in the middle and distal part of chromosome 14 is a rare chromosomal abnormality characterized by a wide spectrum of phenotypic manifestations. We present a patient with a nearly 20 Mb interstitial deletion of chromosome 14q24.3q32.13 determined by FISH, that is associated with minor dysmorphic features, developmental delay, absent(More)
