Duplication in the hypoxanthine phosphoribosyl-transferase gene caused by Alu-Alu recombination in a patient with Lesch Nyhan syndrome


We have determined the structure, at the nucleotide sequence level, of a duplication in the hprt gene in a patient with Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LN). The duplication extends over exons 7 and 8 and approximately 1.8 kb of the surrounding hprt sequence. The duplication junction is localized within two Alu sequences and has apparently been generated by unequal… (More)
