Background Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome (SWS) is characterised by bowing of the lower limbs, respiratory distress and hyperthermia that are often responsible for early death. Survivors develop progressive scoliosis and spontaneous fractures. We previously identified LIFR mutations in most SWS cases, but absence of LIFR pathogenic changes in five patients led us to perform exome sequencing and to identify homozygosity for a FAM46A mutation in one case [p.Ser205Tyrfs*13]. The follow-up of this case…

Compound Heterozygous Frameshift Mutations in MESD Cause a Lethal Syndrome Suggestive of Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type XX
The more severe phenotype in the present study is likely explained by a mutation in exon 2, located within the chaperone domain of MESD, that leads to a complete loss of function, which indicates the relevance of M ESD in early skeletal development.
Modern classification and molecular-genetic aspects of osteogenesis imperfecta
This review systematized and summarized information on the results of studies in the field of clinical and genetic aspects of osteogenesis imperfecta and reflected the current state of the classification criteria for diagnosing the disease.
Mutational Screening of Skeletal Genes in 14 Chinese Children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta Using Targeted Sequencing
The data provides disease-causing genes information for genetic counseling towards OI patients and families and also provides a reference for clinicians in the diagnosis of OI, also in prenatal diagnosis.

This study underscores for the first time incomplete penetrance and broad phenotypic variability in SEMD‐RPL13 type and confirms impaired ribosomal function.
Reproductive options for families at risk of Osteogenesis Imperfecta: a review
A selection of the latest reproductive approaches which may be suitable for prospective parents faced with a risk of OI are described, presented as a decision tree, and the complex process of decision-making around OI reproductive options is discussed from an ethical perspective.
Osteogenesis imperfecta—pathophysiology and therapeutic options
An overview of the genetic heterogeneity and pathophysiological background of OI as well as OI-related bone fragility disorders and current therapeutic options is presented.
Novel mutations in BMP1 result in a patient with autosomal recessive osteogenesis imperfecta
A patient with a BMP1 gene mutation is reported to explore the relationship between genotype and phenotype, and the patient was followed up for 4 years.
Osteogenesis Imperfecta: Mechanisms and signaling pathways connecting classical and rare OI types.
This review provides the latest updates on OI, encompassing both classical OI and rare forms, their mechanism and the signaling pathways involved in their pathophysiology, with a special emphasis on mutations in type I procollagen C-propeptide structure and processing.


Molecular spectrum and differential diagnosis in patients referred with sporadic or autosomal recessive osteogenesis imperfecta
A cohort of patients with OI, all offspring of unaffected parents, are analyzed to determine the spectrum of variants accounting for these cases, which shows an explosion in the number of genes responsible for both recessive and dominant forms of this condition.
Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome in children surviving infancy: clinical and radiological features
The existence of a characteristic phenotype in Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome survivors which include, in addition to the skeletal abnormalities and distinctive radiological features, neurological symptoms reminiscent of dysautonomia is supported.
Null leukemia inhibitory factor receptor (LIFR) mutations in Stuve-Wiedemann/Schwartz-Jampel type 2 syndrome.
It is concluded that SWS and SJS2 represent a single clinically and genetically homogeneous condition due to null mutations in the LIFR gene on chromosome 5p13.1, and functional studies indicated that these mutations alter the stability of L IFR messenger RNA transcripts, resulting in the absence of the LifR protein and in the impairment of the JAK/STAT3 signaling pathway in patient cells.
Genetic Analysis of FAM46A in Spanish Families with Autosomal Recessive Retinitis Pigmentosa: Characterisation of Novel VNTRs
A gene expressed in the retina, FAM46A, mapped within the RP25 locus, and computational data revealed its involvement in retinal signalling pathways, and molecular evaluation of this gene as a good candidate in arRP families linked to theRP25 interval was performed.
Presentation of six cases of Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome
Six additional cases of Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome are reported, suggesting that this syndrome is homogeneous, and parental consanguinity and recurrence in sibs is highly suggestive of autosomal recessive inheritance.
New Insights Into Monogenic Causes of Osteoporosis
The recent discoveries in the area of monogenic forms of osteoporosis are given, describing the key cellular mechanisms leading to skeletal fragility, the major recent research findings and the essential challenges and avenues in future diagnostics and treatments.
Molecular mechanisms and clinical manifestations of rare genetic disorders associated with type I collagen.
The relationship between clinical manifestations and type I collagen - related rare genetic disorders and their possible molecular mechanisms for different mutations and disorders are reviewed.
Susceptibility to large‐joint osteoarthritis (hip and knee) is associated with BAG6 rs3117582 SNP and the VNTR polymorphism in the second exon of the FAM46A gene on chromosome 6
The results suggest association between the FAM46A gene, BAG6 gene and OA in Croatian population, respectively, the first study to show associations between these genetic loci and Oa.
Association of Variable Number of Tandem Repeats in the Coding Region of the FAM46A Gene, FAM46A rs11040 SNP and BAG6 rs3117582 SNP with Susceptibility to Tuberculosis
It is found that infection of human macrophages with heat-killed M. tuberculosis (H37Rv) led to over-expression of FAM46A (VNTR 3/4) transcript, which suggests that the interaction between the FAM 46A and BAG6 proteins may be involved in tuberculosis etiology.
