Consequences of mutations in the non-coding RMRP RNA in cartilage-hair hypoplasia.

Data suggest that alteration of ribosomal processing in CHH is associated with altered cytokine signalling and cell cycle progression in terminally differentiating cells in the lymphocytic and chondrocytic cell lineages.

Novel Mutation and Structural RNA Analysis of the Noncoding RNase MRP Gene in Cartilage-Hair Hypoplasia

The location of the mutations within the secondary structure of the RMRP molecule revealed that the novel g.27G>C mutation causes a disruption in the Watson-Crick base pairing, which results in an impairment of a highly conserved P3 domain.

Cartilage hair hypoplasia mutations that lead to RMRP promoter inefficiency or RNA transcript instability

The results indicate that a loss of mutant RNA transcripts is a critical feature of pathogenesis inilage hair hypoplasia.

Genetic changes in the RNA components of RNase MRP and RNase P in Schmid metaphyseal chondrodysplasia

Cartilage–hair hypoplasia diagnosis should be considered in patients with metaphyseal chondrodysplasia even in the absence of any extra-skeletal manifestations if no mutation in COL10A1 can be found and the family history is compatible with autosomal recessive inheritance.

Type and level of RMRP functional impairment predicts phenotype in the cartilage hair hypoplasia-anauxetic dysplasia spectrum.

In vitro testing of RNase MRP multiprotein-specific mRNA and r RNA cleavage of different mutations revealed a strong correlation between the decrease in rRNA cleavage in ribosomal assembly and the degree of bone dysplasia, whereas reduced mRNA cleavage, and thus cell-cycle impairment, predicts the presence of hair hypoplasia, immunodeficiency, and hematological abnormalities and thus increased cancer risk.

An RNA dependent RNA polymerase formed by hTERT and the RNase MRP RNA

It is shown that TERT interacting with the RNA component of mitochondrial RNA processing endoribonuclease (RMRP), a gene that is mutated in the inherited pleiotropic syndrome cartilage–hair hypoplasia, identifies a mammalian RdRP composed of TERT in complex with RMRP.

Worldwide mutation spectrum in cartilage-hair hypoplasia: ancient founder origin of the major70A→G mutation of the untranslated RMRP

The results using linkage disequilibrium based maximum likelihood estimates with close markers, genealogical studies, and haplotype data suggested that the mutation in the untranslated RMRP gene was introduced to Finland some 3900–4800 years ago, and before the expansion of the population.



Mutagenesis of SNM1, Which Encodes a Protein Component of the Yeast RNase MRP, Reveals a Role for This Ribonucleoprotein Endoribonuclease in Plasmid Segregation

Either the SNM1gene is inherently susceptible to translational suppression or extremely small amounts of Snm1 protein are sufficient to maintain essential levels of MRP activity, which is believed to be the result of a prolonged telophase arrest that has been recently identified in RNase MRP mutants.

The RNA of RNase MRP is required for normal processing of ribosomal RNA.

Results of these experiments indicate that RNase MRP, in addition to its previously reported role in formation of RNA primers for mitochondrial DNA replication, is involved in rRNA processing.

Cartilage-hair hypoplasia gene assigned to chromosome 9 by linkage analysis

The CHH gene is mapped by linkage analysis with 5 markers to chromosome 9 and no heterogeneity was observed in 14 Finnish families, nor was there evidence of reduced penetrance.

Uniparental Disomy in Cartilage-Hair Hypoplasia

Observations show that UPD may occur in an unexpectedly high number of the patients and should be taken into account in the genetic counselling and prenatal diagnostics of CHH families.

Characterization of human MRP/Th RNA and its nuclear gene: full length MRP/Th RNA is an active endoribonuclease when assembled as an RNP.

Oligonucleotide-mediated inhibition experiments reveal that both the 5' and 3' portions of the MRPRNA are involved in cleavage by RNase MRP; this implies that full length MRP RNA complexed with proteins is an active species in vertebrate cells.

Architecture and Function of the Human Endonucleases RNase P and RNase MRP

The binding regions for several of the protein subunits on the RNA have been identified, and the data have been used to create a putative structural model for the RNase MRP particle.

Characterization of the human talin (TLN) gene: genomic structure, chromosomal localization, and expression pattern.

TLN was considered as a candidate gene for cartilage-hair hypoplasia (CHH), an autosomal recessive metaphyseal chondrodysplasia, previously mapped to 9p13, and sequenced the entire TLN coding sequence in several CHH patients, but no functional mutations were detected.

Cartilage-hair hypoplasia.

Cartilage-hair hypoplasia (CHH) or McKusick type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia (MIM No 250250)' is a rare autosomal recessive chondrodysplasia with short limbed short stature, hypoplastic hair, and

Integrated high-resolution BAC, P1, and transcript map of the CHH region in chromosome 9p13.

The primary interest is in the cartilage-hair hypoplasia gene (CHH) that resides within the contig between markers D9S163 andD9S1791 based on linkage evidence.
