Best practice guidelines for molecular analysis of colorectal polyposis : familial adenomatous polyposis coli ( FAP ) and MUTYH-associated polyposis ( MAP )

  title={Best practice guidelines for molecular analysis of colorectal polyposis : familial adenomatous polyposis coli ( FAP ) and MUTYH-associated polyposis ( MAP )},
  author={F. Macdonald and S. Payne},
Background:. UK Clinical Molecular Genetics Society (CMGS) consensus best practice guidelines for molecular analysis of familial adenomatous polyposis coli (FAP) were published in 2000. Technological developments in molecular testing for FAP together with the clinical and molecular characterisation of MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP) led to the need to update the original FAP guidelines which were “retired” in December 2007. This update presents consensus best practice in the molecular analysis… Expand

Tumor suppressor genes in familial adenomatous polyposis
This review provides a venue towards defining candidate genes that can be used as new PCR-based markers for early diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), and opens door towards genome editing to either suppress the disease or reduce its progression during the course of action. Expand


Familial Adenomatous Polyposis: Experience from a Study of 1164 Unrelated German Polyposis Patients
It is shown that the mutation detection rates largely depend on the family history and clinical course of the disease, and genotype-phenotype correlations with respect to the colorectal phenotype and extracolonic manifestations are confirmed. Expand
The genetics of FAP and FAP-like syndromes
Some of the most recent information pertinent to the molecular pathogenesis of colorectal polyposis is drawn together in this review. Expand
Somatic APC mosaicism: a frequent cause of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)
SNaPshot analysis was proven to be an easy, rapid, and reliable method of confirming low‐level mutations and evaluating the degree of mosaicism and in a fraction of FAP patients the causative APC mutation may not be detected due to weak signals or somatic mosaicism that is restricted to tissues other than blood. Expand
Whole-gene APC deletions cause classical familial adenomatous polyposis, but not attenuated polyposis or “multiple” colorectal adenomas
A real-time quantitative multiplex PCR assay is developed to detect APC exon 14 deletions, confirming that haploinsufficiency can result in a classical polyposis phenotype and screening for germ-line deletions in APC mutation-negative individuals with classicalpolyposis seems warranted. Expand
Multiplicity in polyp count and extracolonic manifestations in 40 Dutch patients with MYH associated polyposis coli (MAP)
Polyp numbers in MAP patients were equally associated with the attenuated and classical polyposis coli phenotypes, and two thirds of the MAP patients had colorectal cancer, 95% of whom were older than 35 years, and one third of a subset of patients had upper gastrointestinal lesions. Expand
Disease severity and genetic pathways in attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis vary greatly but depend on the site of the germline mutation
It is proposed that mutations, such as nt4661insA, that leave three 20AARs are preferentially selected in cis with some AFAP mutations because the residual protein function is near optimal for tumorigenesis. Expand
Familial infiltrative fibromatosis (desmoid tumours) (MIM135290) caused by a recurrent 3' APC gene mutation.
It is demonstrated that FAP and FIF are allelic, and that APC gene mutations which truncate the APC protein distal to the beta-catenin binding domain are associated with desmoid tumours, absent CHRPE and variable but attenuated polyposis expression. Expand
Genotype-phenotype correlations in attenuated adenomatous polyposis coli.
The data suggest that, in AAPC families, the location of the APC mutation may partially predict specific phenotypic expression, which should help in the design of tailored clinical-management protocols in this subset of FAP patients. Expand
Familial adenomatous polyposis: mutation at codon 1309 and early onset of colon cancer
In patients with the 5 base-pair deletion at codon 1309, gastrointestinal symptoms and death from colorectal cancer occurred about 10 years earlier than in patients with other mutations, thus giving rise to an earlier malignant transformation. Expand
Molecular analysis of the APC gene in 205 families: extended genotype-phenotype correlations in FAP and evidence for the role of APC amino acid changes in colorectal cancer predisposition
Extended genotypephenotype correlations made in this study may have the potential to determine the most appropriate surveillance and prophylactic treatment regimens for those patients with mutations associated with life threatening conditions. Expand
