Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized mainly by pre- and postnatal growth retardation and characteristic dysmorphic features. The genetic cause of this syndrome is unknown. However, two autosomal translocations involving chromosome 17q25 were reported in association with RSS. Molecular analysis of the breakpoint on(More)
Although clinical features in Kabuki syndrome (KS; Niikawa-Kuroki syndrome) have been well defined, the underlying genetic mechanism still remains unclear. We report a 9-year-old girl with typical KS-like facial appearance, skeletal and dermatoglyphic abnormalities, severe mental retardation, and growth deficiency. In 60 of 100 GTG-banded metaphases from(More)
We report on a three-month-old boy with a 46,XY,der(Y)t(Y;7)(p11.32;p15.3) karyotype and growth deficiency, postnatal microcephaly with large fontanels, wide sagittal and metopic sutures, hypertelorism, choanal stenosis, micrognathia, bilateral cryptorchidism, hypospadias, abnormal fingers and toes, and severe developmental delay. FISH studies showed(More)
Human karyopherin alpha2 (KPNA2), a member of the karyopherin alpha family, plays a key role in the nuclear import of proteins with a classical nuclear localization signal (NLS). KPNA2, as part of a karyopherin alpha-beta heterodimer, directly binds to the NLS of proteins and functions as an adaptor that binds NLS-containing proteins via karyopherin beta to(More)
