The Wilms' tumor gene WT1 plays a key role in genitourinary development and subsequent normal function. Homozygous mutations of WT1 can be found in approximately 15% of Wilms' tumors. Furthermore, somatic heterozygous loss of WT1 is known to lead to cryptorchidism and hypospadias in males. A much more severe phenotype is seen in patients with Denys-Drash(More)
In recent years whole-exome sequencing has been developed , a technique by which all exons of the genome (all the protein-coding DNA) can be sequenced at once. Here we show that whole-exome sequencing, using either 35 or 50 Mb Agilent kits for exome capture, was insufficient to detect pathogenic DYNC2H1 variants in patients with Jeune asphyxiating thoracic(More)
