Screening for subtelomeric rearrangements using automated fluorescent genotyping of microsatellite markers: a Lebanese study.

A screening for submicroscopic rearrangements using specific polymorphic microsatellite markers from the subtelomeric regions of all chromosome arms was performed in 34 independent Lebanese families, including 45 patients with idiopathic mental retardation plus additional features. Five cryptic rearrangements were found in five different families, but… CONTINUE READING
