Intracranial aneurysms (IAs) are the result of focal weakness in the artery wall and have a complex genetic makeup. To date, genome-wide association and sequencing studies have had limited success in identifying IA risk factors. Distinct populations, such as the French-Canadian (FC) population, have increased IA prevalence. In our study, we used exome sequencing to prioritize risk variants in a discovery cohort of six FC families affected by IA, and the analysis revealed an increased variation burden for ring finger protein 213 (RNF213)...

RNF213/Mysterin has been identified as a susceptibility gene for moyamoya disease, a cerebrovascular disease characterized by occlusive lesions in the circle of Willis. The p.R4810K (rs112735431) variant is a founder polymorphism that is strongly associated with moyamoya disease in East Asia. Many non-p.R4810K rare variants of RNF213 have been identified in white moyamoya disease patients, although the ethnic mutations have not been investigated in this population. In the present study, we screened for RNF213 variants in 19 Slovakian and Czech moyamoya disease patients...

The etiology of Moyamoya disease (MMD) is still largely unclear, despite identification of RNF213 as the most significant susceptibility gene in East Asian patients. Following up our previous study confirming genetic heterogeneity in Japanese patients with MMD, we extensively surveyed novel candidate genes for a new perspective on the etiology of this disease. Two characteristic pedigrees without susceptibility variants in RNF213 were selected for whole-exome sequencing; 1 harbored 3 affected members, and the other included discordant monozygotic twins...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a slow, progressive steno-occlusive disease, arising in the terminal portions of the cerebral internal carotid artery. However, the functions and characteristics of the endothelial cells (ECs) in MMD are unknown. We analyzed these features using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived ECs. METHODS: iPSC lines were established from the peripheral blood of three patients with MMD carrying the variant RNF213 R4810K, and three healthy persons used as controls...

Ring finger protein 213 (RNF213) gene polymorphisms are thought to be significant in the etiology and pathogenesis of moyamoya disease (MMD). Due to the rarity of MMD patients, their ethnic diversity, and the use of varying methodologies, studies of the association between these polymorphisms and MMD have not been repeatable. This lack of reproducibility affects the strength of the conclusions drawn from their results. We conducted the present case-control study and meta-analysis to provide more precise estimates of the association between the rs112735431 (c...

BACKGROUND: Quasi-moyamoya disease is an angiographical moyamoya disease equivalent accompanied by known underlying diseases. Mysterin/RNF213 is a major susceptibility gene for moyamoya disease, of which the p.R4810K variant is a founder polymorphism. The genetics of quasi-moyamoya disease is poorly understood, therefore, this study investigated a potential association between the p.R4810K polymorphism and quasi-moyamoya disease. METHODS: Genotyping of the p.R4810K variant was performed on 18 quasi-moyamoya disease cases and 91 controls, who visited Kyoto University Hospital or Kobe City Medical Center, Japan, between 2006 and 2015...

Moyamoya disease is characterized by diffuse distal intracranial stenosis. Recently, RNF213 has been identified as a susceptibility gene in the development of this condition. Pulmonary hypertension is a rare progressive vasculopathy with an unknown etiology. The co-occurrence of pulmonary hypertension and Moyamoya disease has been described in four patients; however, whether this co-occurrence represents a chance association or a common vascular pathology has remained unknown. Here, we report two unrelated male patients who presented during their childhood with dyspnea on exertion...

OBJECTIVES: RNF213 p.R4810K is a founder polymorphism that confers genetic susceptibility to moyamoya disease in East Asia. Only a few studies have investigated the symptoms and disease histories of RNF213 p.R4810K carriers in Japan. This study investigated the frequency of RNF213 p.R4810K in the general Japanese population and the health characteristics of the carriers. METHODS: Through a health-promotion campaign in the city of Uji, Japan, 519 subjects (120 males and 399 females) of the general Japanese population were genotyped for RNF213 p...

Tumours exist in a hypoxic microenvironment and must limit excessive oxygen consumption. Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) controls mitochondrial oxygen consumption, but how/if tumours regulate non-mitochondrial oxygen consumption (NMOC) is unknown. Protein-tyrosine phosphatase-1B (PTP1B) is required for Her2/Neu-driven breast cancer (BC) in mice, although the underlying mechanism and human relevance remain unclear. We found that PTP1B-deficient HER2(+) xenografts have increased hypoxia, necrosis and impaired growth...

Moyamoya disease (MMD) is characterized by a stenosis at the terminal of the internal carotid artery and an abnormal vascular network at the base of the brain. RNF213 is a susceptibility gene for MMD in East Asians. The role of RNF213 in the etiology of MMD remains unknown. Here we generated rnf213a mutant zebrafish using transcription activator-like effector nuclease (TALEN) technique and described the characteristics of a zebrafish embryonic model of MMD. rnf213a mutant zebrafish developed abnormal angiogenesis in intersegmental vessels and cranial secondary vessels...

Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a chronic, occlusive cerebrovascular disease with an unknown etiology and is characterized by an abnormal vascular network at the base of the brain. Recent studies identified the RNF213 gene (RNF213) as an important susceptibility gene for MMD; however, the mechanisms underlying the RNF213 abnormality related to MMD have not yet been elucidated. We previously reported that Rnf213-deficient mice and Rnf213 p. R4828K knock-in mice did not spontaneously develop MMD, indicating the importance of secondary insults in addition to genetic factors in the pathogenesis of MMD...

UNLABELLED: Recent molecular and pathological studies suggest that endometriosis may serve as a precursor of ovarian cancer (endometriosis-associated ovarian cancer, EAOC), especially of the endometrioid and clear cell subtypes. Accordingly, this study had two cardinal aims: first, to obtain mutation profiles of EAOC from Taiwanese patients; and second, to determine whether somatic mutations present in EAOC can be detected in preneoplastic lesions. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues were obtained from ten endometriosis patients with malignant transformation...

OBJECTIVE In a minority of patients with neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF-1), cerebral vasculopathy reminiscent of moyamoya disease develops. This phenomenon is called moyamoya syndrome (MMS), but there are no known risk factors for the prediction of MMS in NF-1 patients. Polymorphism of the RNF213 gene has exhibited strong associations with familial and sporadic moyamoya disease and other cerebral vasculopathies. The aim of this study is to find whether the RNF213 c.14576G>A variant is associated with MMS development in the NF-1 population or not...

Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a chronic, occlusive cerebrovascular disease characterized by progressive stenosis at the terminal portion of the internal carotid artery and an abnormal vascular network at the base of the brain. Although its etiology remains unknown, recent genetic studies identified RNF213 in the 17q25-ter region as an important susceptibility gene of MMD among East Asian populations. Possibly because of genetic differences, MMD is relatively common in people living in East Asian countries such as Korea and Japan, compared to those in the Western Hemisphere...
