Background: The semaphorin 3D (SEMA3D) gene has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Hirschsprung disease (HSCR), a complex genetic disorder characterized by the loss of ganglion cells in varying lengths of gastrointestinal tract. We wished to investigate the role of SEMA3D variants, both rare and common variants, as well as its mRNA expression in Indonesian HSCR patients. Methods: Sanger sequencing was performed in 54 HSCR patients to find a pathogenic variant in SEMA3D. Next, we determined… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effect of semaphorin 3C gene variants in multifactorial Hirschsprung disease

This is the first comprehensive report of SEMA3C screening in patients of Asian ancestry with HSCR and identifies rs1527482 as a possible disease risk allele in this population.

The impact of NRG1 expressions and methylation on multifactorial Hirschsprung disease

This study provides further insights into the aberrant NRG1 expression in the colons of patients with HSCR, both ganglionic and aganglionic bowel, which might contribute to the development of H SCR, particularly in Indonesia.

NOX5 is expressed aberrantly but not a critical pathogenetic gene in Hirschsprung disease

It is shown that NOX5 markedly decreased in the aganglionic segment of HSCR but didn’t involve in the ENS development of zebrafish, which implies that absence of intestinal ganglion cells may lead to down-regulation of NOx5.

Transmembrane Transporter Sema3D Serves as a Tumor Suppressor in Localized Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Transmembrane transporter Sema3D is an efficient prognostic biomarker for localized CCRCC patients, by playing the role of tumor suppressor in ccRCC and can be a novel therapeutic target forccRCC.



Comprehensive Analysis of NRG1 Common and Rare Variants in Hirschsprung Patients

A comprehensive analysis of the NRG1 gene in the context of the disease is presented, by both mutational screening of its coding sequence and evaluation of 3 common tag SNPs as low penetrance susceptibility factors, finding some potentially damaging variants which are functionally characterized.

Effects of RET and NRG1 polymorphisms in Indonesian patients with Hirschsprung disease.

Aberrant high expression of NRG1 gene in Hirschsprung disease.

Effects of SEMA3 polymorphisms in Hirschsprung disease patients

SEMA3 rs12707682 and rs1583147 variants are not common risk factors for HSCR in Indonesia, and the rarity of the SEMA3rs11766001 polymorphism in Indonesian population might be due to a founder effect.

Mutational Spectrum of Semaphorin 3A and Semaphorin 3D Genes in Spanish Hirschsprung patients

The data substantiate the additive genetic model proposed for this rare disorder and further support the association of SEMAs genes with HSCR.

Methylation analysis of EDNRB in human colon tissues of Hirschsprung’s disease

It is demonstrated that epigenetic inactivation of the EDNRB gene may play a role in the development of HSCR.

Aberrant expressions of miRNA-206 target, FN1, in multifactorial Hirschsprung disease

This study is the first report of aberrant FN1 expressions in the colon of patients with HSCR and supplies further insights into the contribution of aberant FN1 expression in the HSCr pathogenesis.

The impact of down-regulated SK3 expressions on Hirschsprung disease

This study shows that the down-regulated SK3 expression in ganglionic intestines might contribute to the persistent bowel symptoms following a properly performed pull-through surgery in Indonesian HSCR patients.

Molecular Genetic Anatomy and Risk Profile of Hirschsprung's Disease

Among the patients in this study, Hirschsprung's disease arose from common noncoding variants, rare coding variants, and copy‐number variants affecting genes involved in enteric neural‐crest cell fate that exacerbate the widespread genetic susceptibility associated with RET.

Trans-ethnic meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies for Hirschsprung disease.

A trans-ethnic meta-analysis of 507 HSCR cases and 1191 controls is presented, combining all published GWAS results to fine-map these loci and narrow down the putatively causal variants to 99% credible sets and demonstrates that the effects of RET and NRG1 are universal across European and Asian ancestries.
