6q16 deletions have been described in patients with a Prader-Willi-like (PWS-like) phenotype. Recent studies have shown that certain rare single-minded 1 (SIM1) loss-of-function variants were associated with a high intra-familial risk for obesity with or without features of PWS-like syndrome. Although SIM1 seems to have a key role in the phenotype of(More)
Inverted duplications with terminal deletions are a well-defined family of complex rearrangements already observed for most of chromosome extremities. Several mechanisms have been suggested which could lead to their occurrence, either through non-homologous end joining, non-allelic homologous recombination, or more recently through an intrastrand fold-back(More)
Tetrasomy 9p is a generic term describing the presence of a supernumerary chromosome incorporating two copies of the 9p arm. Two varieties exist: isodicentric chromosome 9p (i(9p)), where the two 9p arms are linked by a single centromeric region, and pseudodicentric 9p (idic(9p)), where one active and one inactive centromere are linked together by a(More)
