AIMS The prevalence of autoantibodies to zinc transporter 8 (ZnT8) in Czech children at the onset of Type 1 diabetes mellitus and dynamic changes in ZnT8 autoantibody levels during disease progression were studied. The value of ZnT8 autoantibody measurements in diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes was assessed. METHODS Serum samples from 227 children with newly(More)
OBJECTIVE Hepatocyte nuclear factor-1A maturity-onset diabetes of the young (HNF1A-MODY) is a monogenic form of diabetes caused by heterozygous mutations in HNF1A. Currently, a history of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an exclusion criterion for genetic testing for MODY. HISTORY AND EXAMINATION In this article, we describe two unrelated patients aged 17(More)
Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1-β (HNF1B) defects cause renal cysts and diabetes syndrome (RCAD), or HNF1B-maturity-onset diabetes of the young. However, the hepatic phenotype of HNF1B variants is not well studied. We present a female neonate born small for her gestational age [birth weight 2360 g; -2.02 standard deviations (SD) and birth length 45 cm; -2.40 SD(More)
BACKGROUND The role of the IBD5 locus in development of Crohn's disease (CD) has not been clarified. In the Czech population we examined its genetic association using variants of the SLC22A4 (rs1050152), SLC22A5 (rs2631367), two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) shown to be associated with CD in genome-wide studies (rs6596075 and rs2188962), and four(More)
HNF4A mutations cause increased birth weight, transient neonatal hypoglycemia, and maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY). The most frequently reported HNF4A mutation is p.R114W (previously p.R127W), but functional studies have shown inconsistent results; there is a lack of cosegregation in some pedigrees and an unexpectedly high frequency in public(More)
Mutations in the insulin (INS) gene rarely occur in patients with Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY). We aimed to describe in detail two MODY families with INS mutations. The INS gene was screened by direct sequencing. The probands and their affected relatives underwent a mixed-meal test. Mutation predictions were modeled using I-TASSER and were(More)
MODY is mainly characterised by an early onset of diabetes and a positive family history of diabetes with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. However, de novo mutations have been reported anecdotally. The aim of this study was to systematically revisit a large collection of MODY patients to determine the minimum prevalence of de novo mutations in the(More)
Crohn's disease (CD) has been shown to be associated with the variants in the CARD15 gene as well as in other genes involved in the immune response. The frequencies of the variants profoundly differ among populations and so does the associated risk. We examined the associations of variants in the CARD15, TNFA and PTPN22 genes with pediatric-onset and(More)
CONTEXT PROP1 gene mutations cause multiple pituitary hormone deficiency (MPHD). OBJECTIVE We sought to expand experience with PROP1 mutation carriers by studying a large cohort of Lithuanian patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty-seven MPHD patients were tested for PROP1 defects. Perinatal and postnatal data were obtained from medical records. Hormonal(More)
