Mutations in ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated-protein 1 (GDAP1) have been associated with both subtypes of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, autosomal recessive (CMT4A and AR-CMT2K) and autosomal dominant (AD-CMT2K). Over 80 different mutations have been identified so far. With the use of Sanger sequencing and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, we screened a cohort of 306 unrelated Chinese CMT patients and identified 8 variants in the GDAP1 gene in 4 families, 5 of which were novel (R41H, N201Kfs*5, Q38X, V215I and Q38R)...

BACKGROUND: NGS-based genetic diagnosis has completely revolutionized the human genetics field. In this study, we have aimed to identify new genes and mutations by Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) responsible for inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD). METHODS: A cohort of 33 pedigrees affected with a variety of retinal disorders was analysed by WES. Initial prioritization analysis included around 300 IRD-associated genes. In non-diagnosed families a search for pathogenic mutations in novel genes was undertaken...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
