A reciprocal translocation 46,XY,t(8;9)(p11.2;q13) in a bladder exstrophy patient disrupts CNTNAP3 and presents evidence of a pericentromeric duplication on chromosome 9.


A patient with sporadic bladder exstrophy and de novo apparently balanced chromosomal translocation 46,XY,t(8;9)(p11.2;q13) was analyzed by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and molecular methods. We were able to map both translocation breakpoints to single genomic clones. The chromosome 8p11.2 breakpoint was mapped to BAC clone RP4-547J18… (More)
