Context: The DUOX2 enzyme generates hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), a crucial electron acceptor for the TPO-catalyzed iodination and coupling reactions mediating thyroid hormone biosynthesis. DUOX2 mutations result in dyshormonogenetic Congenital Hypothyroidism (CH) which may be phenotypically heterogeneous, leading to the hypothesis that CH severity may be influenced by environmental factors (eg dietary iodine) and oligogenic modifiers (eg variants in the homologous NADPH-oxidase DUOX1). However, loss of function mutations in DUOX1 have not hitherto been described and its role in thyroid biology remains undefined...

Primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is a severe autosomal recessive ocular disorder associated with considerable clinical and genetic heterogeneity. Recently, rare heterozygous alleles in the angiopoietin receptor-encoding gene TEK were implicated in PCG. We undertook this study to ascertain the second mutant allele in a large cohort (n = 337) of autosomal recessive PCG cases that carried heterozygous TEK mutations. Our investigations revealed 12 rare heterozygous missense mutations in TEK by targeted sequencing...

Objective: Normosmic congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (nCHH) is a rare disorder characterized by lack of pubertal development and infertility, due to deficient production, secretion or action of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and, unlike Kallmann syndrome, is associated with a normal sense of smell. Mutations in the GNRHR gene cause autosomal recessive nCHH. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of GNRHR mutations in a group of 40 patients with nCHH. Design: Cross sectional study of 40 unrelated patients with nCHH...

The knowledge on systemic autoinflammatory disorders (SAID) is expanding rapidly and new signalling pathways are being decrypted. The concept of autoinflammation has been proposed since 1999, to define a group of diseases with abnormal innate immunity activation. Since then, more than 30 monogenic SAID have been described. In this review, we first describe inflammasomopathies and SAID related to the interleukin-1 pathway. Recent insights into the pathogenesis of familial Mediterranean fever and the function of Pyrin are detailed...

Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) is a rare heritable skin fragility disorder, most commonly caused by dominant mutations in KRT5 and KRT14. EBS shows clinical heterogeneity with localised, intermediate and generalised severe forms, which tend to correlate with the location and nature of the disease causing mutations. We therefore aimed to identify the KRT5 and KRT14 mutations in patients diagnosed with EBS in Australia, and explore in depth the genotype to the phenotype correlations in patients with novel variants...

Mutations in the photoreceptor outer segment (OS) specific peripherin-2 lead to autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP). By contrast, mutations in the peripherin-2 homolog Rom-1 cause digenic RP in combination with certain heterozygous mutations in peripherin-2. The mechanisms underlying the differential role of peripherin-2 and Rom-1 in RP pathophysiology remained elusive so far. Here, focusing on two adRP-linked peripherin-2 mutants, P210L and C214S, we analyzed the binding characteristics, protein assembly, and rod OS targeting of wild type (per(WT)), mutant peripherin-2 (per(MT)), or Rom-1 complexes, which can be formed in patients heterozygous for peripherin-2 mutations...

Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects up to 1% of live births. Although a genetic etiology is indicated by an increased recurrence risk, sporadic occurrence suggests that CHD genetics is complex. Here, we show that hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a severe CHD, is multigenic and genetically heterogeneous. Using mouse forward genetics, we report what is, to our knowledge, the first isolation of HLHS mutant mice and identification of genes causing HLHS. Mutations from seven HLHS mouse lines showed multigenic enrichment in ten human chromosome regions linked to HLHS...

While individually classed as rare diseases, hereditary retinal degenerations (IRDs) are the major cause of registered visual handicap in the developed world. Given their hereditary nature, some degree of intergenic heterogeneity was expected, with genes segregating in autosomal dominant, recessive, X-linked recessive, and more rarely in digenic or mitochondrial modes. Today, it is recognized that IRDs, as a group, represent one of the most genetically diverse of hereditary conditions - at least 260 genes having been implicated, with 70 genes identified in the most common IRD, retinitis pigmentosa (RP)...

Brugada syndrome is a primary arrhythmic syndrome that accounts for 20% of all sudden cardiac death cases in individuals with a structurally normal heart. Pathogenic variants associated with Brugada syndrome have been identified in over 19 genes, with SCN5A as a pivotal gene accounting for nearly 30% of cases. In contrast to other arrhythmogenic channelopathies (such as long QT syndrome), digenic inheritance has never been reported in Brugada syndrome. Exploring 66 cardiac genes using a new custom next-generation sequencing panel, we identified a double heterozygosity for pathogenic mutations in SCN5A and TRPM4 in a Brugada syndrome patient...

The prevalence of genetic variants associated to cutaneous melanoma (CM) has never been determined within Cypriot melanomas. This study evaluates the frequency of variants in cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A (CDKN2A) and melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) in 32 patients diagnosed with CM. Other characteristics and risk factors were also assessed. CDKN2A p.Ala148Thr was detected in three of 32 patients, while the control group revealed no variations within CDKN2A. MC1R screening in 32 patients revealed the following variations: p...

Genetic mutations underlying neurodegenerative disorders impair ribosomal DNA (rDNA) transcription suggesting that nucleolar dysfunction could be a novel pathomechanism in polyglutamine diseases and in certain forms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/frontotemporal dementia. Here, we investigated nucleolar activity in pre-symptomatic digenic models of Parkinson's disease (PD) that model the multifactorial aetiology of this disease. To this end, we analysed a novel mouse model mildly overexpressing mutant human α-synuclein (hA53T-SNCA) in a PTEN-induced kinase 1 (PINK1/PARK6) knockout background and mutant mice lacking both DJ-1 (also known as PARK7) and PINK1...

BACKGROUND: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a common pathological condition of the musculoskeletal system in infants which results in a congenital and developmental malformation of the hip joint. DDH is a spectrum of pathologies affecting the infant hip ranging from asymptomatic subtle radiographic signs through mild instability to frank dislocations with acetabular dysplasia. A Saudi family with three affected individuals with DDH was identified and genetic analysis was performed to detect the possible genetic defect(s) underlying DDH in the affected members of the family...

The paper describes a putative digenic form of deafness in two siblings affected by non-syndromic hereditary hearing loss, detected by a Targeted resequencing approach. Given that a previous paper suggested TMPRSS3 and GJB2 genes as responsible for a digenic form of hearing loss, our data support and reinforce this hypothesis.

We present a comprehensive comparison of PAX5,IKZF1, and CDKN2A/B abnormalities in 21 B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) patients studied by aCGH and gene-specific FISH assays. In our cohort of B-ALL patients, alterations of IKZF1, PAX5, and CDKN2A/B were detected by aCGH analysis in 43, 52, and 57% of samples, respectively. Deletions of IKZF1 were present in 9 samples, including 5 cases positive for both PAX5 and IKZF1 deletions, implying digenic impairment. Furthermore, all cases with IKZF1 deletions also had additional genomic alterations, including BCR-ABL1 gene fusions, PAX5 deletions, CDKN2A/B deletions, and FLT3 amplification...

Fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FCV) is an established method to monitor increases in extracellular dopamine (DA) concentration ([DA]o) in the striatum, which is densely innervated by DA axons. Ex vivo brain slice preparations provide an opportunity to identify endogenous modulators of DA release. For these experiments, local electrical stimulation is often used to elicit release of DA, as well as other transmitters, in the striatal microcircuitry; changes in evoked increases in [DA]o after application of a pharmacological agent (e...
