Type 1 Gaucher disease (GD), a non-neuronopathic lysosomal storage disorder, results from the deficient activity of acid beta-glucosidase (GBA). Type 1 disease is panethnic but is more prevalent in individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish (AJ) descent. Of the causative GBA mutations, N370S is particularly frequent in the AJ population, (q approximately .03), whereas the 84GG insertion (q approximately .003) occurs exclusively in the Ashkenazim. To investigate the genetic history of these mutations in… Expand
New insights into the origin of the Gaucher disease-causing mutation N370S: extended haplotype analysis using the 5GC3.2, 5470 G/A, and ITG6.2 polymorphisms.
Gaucher disease is a lysosomal storage disorder inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. It is highly prevalent among Ashkenazi Jews but also present in other populations. Mutations in theExpand
The GBA p.G85E mutation in Korean patients with non-neuronopathic Gaucher disease: founder and neuroprotective effects
TLDR
The GBA p.G85E mutation, which appears to be neuroprotective despite producing distinctive visceromegaly and skeletal symptoms, exhibited a potential founder effect in Korean GD patients. Expand
A common and two novel GBA mutations in Thai patients with Gaucher disease
TLDR
Studies to determine the molecular pathomechanism of the p.X537A mutation, the first of its kind in this gene, showed that it decreased the amount of protein being expressed and the enzymatic activity, while it was still correctly localized. Expand

TLDR
The lessons that have learned from Gaucher disease may well be applicable to the development of therapies for some of the other less common lysosomal storage diseases. Expand
Three cases of multi-generational Gaucher disease and colon cancer from an Ashkenazi Jewish family: A lesson for cascade screening
TLDR
An Ashkenazi Jewish family is reported with multi-generational GD type 1 and multigenerational colon cancer in the same three individuals, and the importance of cascade screening in families with genetic conditions is reinforced. Expand
Gaucher disease: multiple lessons from a single gene disorder
TLDR
Until 15 years ago, treatment has been restricted to symptomatic interventions, such as splenectomy or hip replacement, however, there are now specific treatment options – enzyme replacement therapy and substrate reduction therapy. Expand
Carrier screening for mucolipidosis type IV in the American Ashkenazi Jewish population.
TLDR
The addition of both AJ mutations causing this neurodegenerative disorder should be considered for prenatal carrier screening in this population of Ashkenazi Jewish patients. Expand
Origin and spread of the 1278insTATC mutation causing Tay-Sachs disease in Ashkenazi Jews: genetic drift as a robust and parsimonious hypothesis
TLDR
The founder effect in a rapidly expanding population arising from a bottleneck provides a robust parsimonious hypothesis explaining the spread of 1278insTATC-linked TSD in AJ individuals. Expand
Recent origin and spread of a common Lithuanian mutation, G197del LDLR, causing familial hypercholesterolemia: positive selection is not always necessary to account for disease incidence among Ashkenazi Jews.
TLDR
The founder effect in a rapidly expanding population from a limited number of families remains a simple, parsimonious hypothesis explaining the spread of G197del-LDLR-linked FH in AJ individuals. Expand
Los haplotipos colombianos de la mutación N370S causante de la enfermedad de Gaucher pueden provenir de un haplotipo ancestral común
TLDR
A conserved fraction of the haplotypes suggests that N370S may be present among patients and stem from a single ancestral chromosome for which the ethnic origin is still unclear. Expand

TLDR
Screening methods that utilize PCR amplification of glucocerebrosidase genomic DNA and Eco571, Nci1, Hinc11, BsaJ1, and Bsr1 restriction endonuclease analyses for the detection of each of these mutations are developed. Expand
Gaucher disease: N370S glucocerebrosidase gene frequency in the Portuguese population
TLDR
The frequency of the N370S glucocerebrosidase gene mutation was accurately determined in the Portuguese population, which does not present an Ashkenazi Jewish genetic background, and supports the idea that the majority of homozygotes for this mutation present a very mild clinical phenotype and remain undiagnosed. Expand
Gaucher disease: Identification of three new mutations in the Korean and Chinese (Taiwanese) populations
TLDR
Sequencing of RT‐PCR cDNAs from five unrelated Korean and two sibling Chinese Gaucher type 1 patients identified three new Gaucher disease mutations, suggesting an ancient mutation in the Korean and Chinese (Taiwanese) population. Expand
Lower frequency of Gaucher disease carriers among Tay-Sachs disease carriers
TLDR
It is indicated that carriers of both diseases do not possess additional evolutionary advantage over single mutation carriers, and one or both mutations have arisen relatively recently in different regions of Europe and have not yet reached genetic equilibrium. Expand
Linkage of the PvuII polymorphism with the common Jewish mutation for Gaucher disease.
TLDR
By analyzing 54 unrelated Gaucher patients, strong linkage disequilibrium between the Pv1.1- genotype and the common Jewish mutation 1226 causing the adult type of this disease is shown and suggests that one of the unknown alleles may be relatively common and linked to the Pv 1.1+ genotype. Expand
Genetic analysis of idiopathic torsion dystonia in Ashkenazi Jews and their recent descent from a small founder population
TLDR
The recent origin of this dominant mutation and its current high frequency suggest that the Ashkenazi population descends from a limited group of founders, and emphasize the importance of genetic drift in determining disease allele frequencies in this population. Expand
The Two Common Mutations Causing Factor XI Deficiency in Jews Stem From Distinct Founders: One of Ancient Middle Eastern Origin and Another of More Recent European Origin
TLDR
The findings constitute the first example of a mutation common to Ashkenazi Jewish, non-Ashkenazi Jews, and Arabs and are consistent with the origin of type II mutation in a founder before the divergence of the major segments of Jews. Expand
The 185delAG BRCA1 mutation originated before the dispersion of Jews in the diaspora and is not limited to Ashkenazim.
TLDR
It is concluded that the 185delAG BRCA1 mutation occurs in some non-Ashkenazi populations at rates comparable with that of Ashkenazim, supporting the founder effect notion, but dating the mutation's origin to an earlier date than currently estimated. Expand

A single genetic origin for the common prothrombotic G20210A polymorphism in the prothrombin gene.
TLDR
Data strongly support a single origin for factor II G20210A that probably occurred after the divergence of Africans from non-Africans and of Caucasoid from Mongoloid subpopulations. Expand
