A novel nonsense mutation in CUL4B gene in three brothers with X‐linked mental retardation syndrome
TLDR
A novel nonsense mutation in CUL4B gene in three brothers with X‐linked mental retardation syndrome is identified. Expand
Exome sequencing identifies WDR35 variants involved in Sensenbrenner syndrome.
TLDR
WDR35 is homologous to TULP4 and has previously been characterized as an intraflagellar transport component, confirming that Sensenbrenner syndrome is a ciliary disorder and a splice-site mutation in exon 2 of WDR35 alters splicing of RNA on the affected allele, introducing a premature stop codon.

A systematic, large-scale resequencing screen of X-chromosome coding exons in mental retardation
TLDR
The coding exons of the X chromosome in 208 families with X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) are sequenced, the largest direct screen for constitutional disease-causing mutations thus far reported. Expand
XLMR genes: update 2007
TLDR
This work lists 215 XLMR conditions, subdivided according to their clinical presentation: 149 with specific clinical findings, including 98 syndromes and 51 neuromuscular conditions, and 66 nonspecific (MRX) forms. Expand
Monogenic causes of X-linked mental retardation
TLDR
Findings in X-linked genes and proteins affected in three important syndromic forms of XLMR provide important insights into the molecular and cellular defects that underlie mental retardation. Expand
The genetic landscape of intellectual disability arising from chromosome X.
X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) or intellectual disability (ID) is a common, clinically complex and genetically heterogeneous disease arising from many mutations along the X chromosome. It affectsExpand
Next generation sequencing in a family with autosomal recessive Kahrizi syndrome (OMIM 612713) reveals a homozygous frameshift mutation in SRD5A3
TLDR
The results show that Kahrizi syndrome and this CDG Ix subtype are allelic disorders, and they illustrate the potential of next-generation sequencing strategies for the elucidation of single gene defects. Expand
Deletion of CUL4B leads to concordant phenotype in a monozygotic twin pair
TLDR
The present case is the smallest deletion involving CUL4B described to date and it is reported that the twins were monozygotic using microsatellite analyses and the mother had normal phenotype and X chromosome inactivation studies, using the androgen receptor assay (AR) revealed an extremely skewed X inactivation pattern. Expand
Genetic and Epigenetic Networks in Intellectual Disabilities
TLDR
It seems that there might be common pathological patterns in ID, despite its bewildering genetic heterogeneity, and these common pathways provide attractive opportunities for knowledge-based therapeutic interventions. Expand
Exome sequencing: locating causative genes in rare disorders
TLDR
Exome sequencing identifies the cause of a mendelian disorder and points to a single drug or combination of drugs to correct the problem. Expand
