Combination of Multiple Ligation-Dependent Probe Amplification and Illumina MiSeq Amplicon Sequencing for TSC1/TSC2 Gene Analyses in Patients with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex.


Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous disorder characterized by tumor growth in multiple organs and caused by mutations in either TSC1 or TSC2 genes. Because of their relatively large genomic sizes, absence of hotspots, and common type of mutations, mutation detection in TSC1 and TSC2 genes has been challenging. We devised… (More)
