The human sex chromosomes differ in sequence, except for the pseudoautosomal regions (PAR) at the terminus of the short and the long arms, denoted as PAR1 and PAR2. The boundary between PAR1 and the unique X and Y sequences was established during the divergence of the great apes. During a copy number variation screen, we noted a paternally inherited(More)
Partial deletions of the long arm of chromosome 13 lead to variable phenotypes dependant on the size and position of the deleted region. In order to update the phenotypic map of chromosome 13q21.1-qter deletions, we applied 244k Agilent oligonucleotide-based array-CGH to determine the exact breakpoints in 14 patients with partial deletions of this region.(More)
UNLABELLED Cryptic chromosome aberrations are a common cause of idiopathic mental retardation and multiple congenital malformations syndromes (MR/MCM). MATERIAL AND METHODS This study describes results and compares three methods for detection of submicroscopic chromosome aberrations in 76 children with MR/MCM and normal routine G-banded karyotype.

Campomelic dysplasia (CD, MIM 114290) is a rare, often lethal, dominantly inherited, congenital skeletal dysplasia, associated with male-to-female autosomal sex reversal and due to de novo mutations of the SOX9 gene, a tissue-specific transcription factor gene involved both in skeletogenesis and male sexual differentiation. Here we report on a 4 months-old(More)
