Defects in mouse mammary gland development caused by conditional haploinsufficiency of Patched-1. (1/67)

In vertebrates, the hedgehog family of cell signaling proteins and associated downstream network components play an essential role in mediating tissue interactions during development and organogenesis. Loss-of-function or misexpression mutation of hedgehog network components can cause birth defects, skin cancer and other tumors. The mammary gland is a specialized skin derivative requiring epithelial-epithelial and epithelial-stromal tissue interactions similar to those required for development of other organs, where these interactions are often controlled by hedgehog signaling. We have investigated the role of the Patched-1 (Ptc1) hedgehog receptor gene in mammary development and neoplasia. Haploinsufficiency at the Ptc1 locus results in severe histological defects in ductal structure, and minor morphological changes in terminal end buds in heterozygous postpubescent virgin animals. Defects are mainly ductal hyperplasias and dysplasias characterized by multilayered ductal walls and dissociated cells impacting ductal lumens. This phenotype is 100% penetrant. Remarkably, defects are reverted during late pregnancy and lactation but return upon involution and gland remodeling. Whole mammary gland transplants into athymic mice demonstrates that the observed dysplasias reflect an intrisic developmental defect within the gland. However, Ptc1-induced epithelial dysplasias are not stable upon transplantation into a wild-type epithelium-free fat pad, suggesting stromal (or epithelial and stromal) function of Ptc1. Mammary expression of Ptc1 mRNA is both epithelial and stromal and is developmentally regulated. Phenotypic reversion correlates with developmentally regulated and enhanced expression of Indian hedgehog (Ihh) during pregnancy and lactation. Data demonstrate a critical mammary role for at least one component of the hedgehog signaling network and suggest that Ihh is the primary hedgehog gene active in the gland.  (+info)

The expression of Jagged1 in the developing mammalian heart correlates with cardiovascular disease in Alagille syndrome. (2/67)

The establishment of the cardiovascular system represents an early, critical event essential for normal embryonic development, and defects in cardiovascular development are a frequent cause of both in utero and neonatal demise. Congenital cardio-vascular malformations, the most frequent birth defect, can occur as isolated events, but are frequently presented clinically within the context of a constellation of defects that involve multiple organs and that define a specific syndrome. In addition, defects can be a primary effect of gene mutations or result from secondary effects of altered cardiac physiology. Alagille syndrome (AGS) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by developmental abnormalities of the heart, liver, eye, skeleton and kidney. Congenital heart defects, the majority of which affect the right-sided or pulmonary circulation, contribute significantly to mortality in AGS patients. Recently, mutations in Jagged1 ( JAG1 ), a conserved gene of the Notch intercellular signaling pathway, have been found to cause AGS. In order to begin to delineate the role of JAG1 in normal heart development we have studied the expression pattern of JAG1 in both the murine and human embryonic heart and vascular system. Here, we demonstrate that JAG1 is expressed in the developing heart and multiple associated vascular structures in a pattern that correlates with the congenital cardiovascular defects observed in AGS. These data are consistent with an important role for JAG1 and Notch signaling in early mammalian cardiac development.  (+info)

Living related donor liver transplantation in a patient with severe aortic stenosis. (3/67)

We report the successful anaesthetic management of a young girl with Alagille's syndrome and severe aortic stenosis (resting pressure gradient 88 mm Hg) undergoing living related donor liver transplantation (LRDLT). The patient had end-stage liver disease and LRDLT was performed before replacement of the aortic valve. Anaesthesia was conducted uneventfully with the aid of a pulmonary artery catheter. Intra-aortic balloon pumping was used in the perioperative period for protection against myocardial ischaemia. Total clamping of the inferior vena cava was avoided during surgery and volume administration was guided by the pulmonary artery pressure. A stable circulation was maintained in the reperfusion period. The patient was discharged from hospital on day 54 after operation with normal liver function. Two years later her aortic valve was replaced successfully.  (+info)

JAGGED1 expression in human embryos: correlation with the Alagille syndrome phenotype. (4/67)

Alagille syndrome (AGS, MIM 118450) is an autosomal dominant disorder with a variable phenotype characterised by hepatic, eye, cardiac, and skeletal malformations and a characteristic facial appearance. Mutations within the gene JAGGED1 (JAG1), which encodes a ligand for NOTCH receptor(s), has been shown to cause Alagille syndrome. Interactions of NOTCH receptors and their ligands influence cell fate decisions in several developmental pathways. We report the tissue expression of JAG1 in human embryos. We have performed tissue in situ hybridisation on human embryos aged 32-52 days using (35)S labelled riboprobes for JAG1. JAG1 is expressed in the distal cardiac outflow tract and pulmonary artery, major arteries, portal vein, optic vesicle, otocyst, branchial arches, metanephros, pancreas, mesocardium, around the major bronchial branches, and in the neural tube. We conclude that JAG1 is expressed in the structures affected in Alagille syndrome, such as the pulmonary artery, anterior chamber of the eye, and face.  (+info)

Does liver transplantation affect growth pattern in Alagille syndrome? (5/67)

Alagille syndrome (AGS) is frequently associated with growth failure, which has been attributed to concurrent congenital anomalies, cholestasis, and malabsorption and/or malnutrition. However, the underlying cause of the growth failure is not well understood. Our objective is to analyze the growth pattern in 26 patients with AGS and the possible effect that orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) may have on this pattern. The standardized height, weight, and growth velocity of 26 pair-matched patients with AGS were compared. Thirteen patients underwent OLT. Repeated-measure ANOVA methods were used for the statistical analysis. The overall mean standardized height (z score) was -2.92 in the OLT group versus -1.88 in the non-OLT group (P =.03). The overall mean standardized weight was -1. 21 in the non-OLT group and -1.67 in the OLT group (P =.23). In 15 patients, birth weight was 2.82 +/- 0.4 kg, for a mean standardized weight of -0.95, and weight at diagnosis was 4.53 +/- 2.12 kg, for a mean standardized weight of -1.56. Bone age was delayed in the 9 patients who underwent bone-age analysis. Growth hormone therapy administered to 2 patients did not improve growth. Patients with AGS had growth failure secondary to other factors in addition to liver disease. Growth failure beginning in the prenatal period supports a genetic basis for this feature. Growth improvement up to normal levels should not be expected as a benefit of OLT in these patients. Growth failure as a primary indication for OLT should be cautiously examined in patients with AGS.  (+info)

Defective intracellular transport and processing of JAG1 missense mutations in Alagille syndrome. (6/67)

Jagged1 (JAG1) is a cell surface ligand in the Notch signaling pathway and mutations in this gene cause Alagille syndrome (AGS). JAG1 mutations have been identified in 60-70% of AGS patients studied, and these include total gene deletions ( approximately 6%), protein-truncating mutations (insertions, deletions and nonsense mutations) (82%) and missense mutations (12%). Based on the finding that total JAG1 deletions cause AGS, haploinsufficiency has been hypothesized to be a mechanism for disease causation; however, the mechanism by which missense mutations cause disease is not understood. To date, 25 unique missense mutations have been observed in AGS patients. Missense mutations are non-randomly distributed across the protein with clusters at the 5' end of the protein, in the conserved DSL domain, and two clusters within the EGF repeats. To understand the effect of the missense mutations on protein localization and function, we have studied four missense mutations (R184H, L37S, P163L and P871R). In two assays of JAG1 function, R184H and L37S are associated with loss of Notch signaling activity relative to wild-type JAG1. Neither R184H or L37S is present on the cell surface and both are abnormally glycosylated. Furthermore, these mutations lead to abnormal accumulation of the protein, possibly in the endoplasmic reticulum. Both P163L and P871R are associated with normal levels of Notch signaling activity and are present on the cell surface, consistent with these changes being polymorphisms rather than disease-causing mutations.  (+info)

Parental mosaicism of JAG1 mutations in families with Alagille syndrome. (7/67)

The Alagille syndrome (AGS), a congenital disorder affecting liver, heart, skeleton and eye in association with a typical face, is an autosomal dominant disease with nearly complete penetrance and variable expression. AGS is caused by mutations in the developmentally important JAG1 gene. In our mutation screening, where 61 mutations in JAG1 were detected, we identified five cases where mosaicism is present. Our results point to a significant frequency of mosaicism for JAG1 mutations in AGS of more than 8.2%. Because mosaicism may be associated with a very mild phenotype, the appropriate diagnosis of AGS and consequently the determination of the recurrence risk can be complicated.  (+info)

Outcome of liver disease in children with Alagille syndrome: a study of 163 patients. (8/67)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Various opinions have been expressed as to the long term prognosis of liver disease associated with Alagille syndrome (AGS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We reviewed the outcome of 163 children with AGS and liver involvement, investigated from 1960 to 2000, the end point of the study (median age 10 years (range 2 months to 44 years)) being death, liver transplantation, or the last visit. RESULTS: At the study end point, of the 132 patients who presented with neonatal cholestatic jaundice, 102 remained jaundiced, 112 had poorly controlled pruritus, and 40 had xanthomas; cirrhosis was found in 35/76 livers, varices in 25/71 patients, and liver transplantation had been carried out in 44 patients (33%). Forty eight patients died, 17 related to complications of liver disease. Of 31 patients who did not present with neonatal cholestatic jaundice, five were jaundiced at the study end point, 17 had well controlled pruritus, and none had xanthomas; cirrhosis was found in 6/18 patients, varices in 4/11, and none underwent liver transplantation. Nine patients died, two of liver disease. In the whole series, actuarial survival rates with native liver were 51% and 38% at 10 and 20 years, respectively, and overall survival rates were 68% and 62%, respectively. Neonatal cholestatic jaundice was associated with poorer survival with native liver (p=0.0004). CONCLUSIONS: The prognosis of liver disease in AGS is worse in children who present with neonatal cholestatic jaundice. However, severe liver complications are possible even after late onset of liver disease, demanding follow up throughout life.  (+info)

Alagille syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder with high penetrance but variable expressivity. Alagille syndrome 1 (ALGS1; MIM 118450) is caused by mutations in the JAG1 gene, encoding jagged-1, a ligand for the Notch receptors. Alagille syndrome 2 (ALGS2; MIM 610205) is caused by mutations in NOTCH2, which encodes a transmembrane Notch receptor. Interactions between Notch ligands and receptors regulate signaling pathways important for cell fate determination. The main clinical findings of Alagille syndrome include cholestasis due to bile duct paucity, congenital heart defects, skeletal abnormalities, a characteristic facial appearance, eye abnormalities, and renal disease. Cardiovascular findings include tetralogy of Fallot, peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis, atrial and/or ventricular septal defects, and coarctation of the aorta. Butterfly vertebra is the most common skeletal finding, particularly in individuals with JAG1 mutations. Other findings include narrowing of interpeduncular ...

The patient was a 15-year-old girl with an established diagnosis of Alagille syndrome (AS) since early life. Her medical history was significant for systemic manifestations of AS including liver transplantation and pulmonary artery balloon dilation. She had an unusual triangular facies characterized by a broad overhanging forehead, deep set, hyperteloric eyes and small pointed chin. Her bestcorrected visual acuity was 1.0 in both eyes. Slit-lamp examination was positive for posterior embryotoxon in both eyes. Funduscopy revealed diffuse choroidal hypopigmentation with increased visibility of the choroidal vessels and symmetric, well-circumscribed macular discoloration (Figure 1). A circumferential chorioretinal atrophy was also detected in the peripheral retina (Figure 1). Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) imaging clearly defined hypofluorescent areas in the peripapillary regions that extended along the macula and had a sleep mask appearance (Figure 2). Peripheral circumferential chorioretinal ...
Alagille syndrome (ALGS) is an autosomal dominant condition, primarily caused by mutations in JAGGED1. ALGS is defined by cholestatic liver disease, cardiac disease and involvement of the face, skeleton, and eyes with variable expression of these features. Renal involvement has been reported though not formally described. The objective of this study was to systematically characterize the renal involvement in ALGS. We performed a retrospective review of 466 JAGGED1 mutation-positive ALGS patients. Charts were reviewed for serum biochemistries, renal ultrasounds or other imaging, urinalysis, and clinical reports from pediatric nephrologists. The clinical data were reviewed by two pediatric hepatologists and a pediatric nephrologist. Of 466 charts reviewed we found 187 yielded evaluable renal information. Of these, 73/187 were shown to have renal involvement, representing 39% of the study cohort. Renal dysplasia was the most common anomaly seen. Genotype analysis of the JAGGED1 mutations in the ...

The Alagille diagnosis clicked a puzzle piece in place. We may never have known if she had biliary atresia--her liver is too damaged to tell with a biopsy or during transplant at this point. But with a positive genetic test result, that mystery has been solved. We know definitively what has caused the liver failure. And we also know why were sitting around in July without the same rate of rapid decline that was happening October - February. Alagille Syndrome patients have no anticipated rhythm or pattern to their liver failure. While biliary atresia patients tend to decline steadily and/or rapidly at different times, ALGS patients can plateau, decline steadily, plateau, decline rapidly, etc all at varying times and speeds. This plateau that Brooklyn seemed to have hit this past spring was just that. And it explains why she had seemed to be declining so rapidly in the fall--because she was. She is still in liver failure and still needs a transplant, but her decline has transitioned into a period ...

JAG1, the gene for the Jagged-1 ligand (Jag1) in the Notch signaling pathway, is variably mutated in Alagille Syndrome (ALGS). ALGS patients have skeletal defects, and additionally JAG1 has been shown to be associated with low bone mass through genome wide association studies. Plating human osteoblast precursors (mesenchymal stem cells -- hMSC) on Jag1 is sufficient to induce osteoblast differentiation; however, exposure of mouse MSC (mMSC) to Jag1 actually inhibits osteoblastogenesis. Overexpression of the notch-2 intracellular domain (NICD) is sufficient to mimic the effect of Jag1 on hMSC osteoblastogenesis, while blocking Notch signaling with a gamma-secretase inhibitor or with dominant negative mastermind inhibits Jag1 induced hMSC osteoblastogenesis. In pursuit of interacting signaling pathways, we discovered that treatment with a PKCδ inhibitor abrogates Jag1 induced hMSC osteoblastogenesis. Jag1 results in rapid PKCδ nuclear translocation and kinase activation. Furthermore, Jag1 stimulates the

Cholestatic liver diseases in childhood frequently result in growth retardation. The pathophysiology is usually multifactoral including reduced calorie intake, abnormal protein metabolism, fat and fat soluble vitamin malabsorption, increased energy expenditure, pancreatic insufficiency, accompanying infections and genetic disposition. All children with cholestatic liver diseases should undergo an assessment for their nutritional status and dietary intake and receive dietary counseling from a dietitian with monitoring of intake to ensure adequate energy and nutrient intake. After liver transplantation growth improves in the majority of children with good liver function. However some children, especially with genetic diseases such as Alagille syndrome, PFIC or CF do not grow normally. In selected cases therapy with growth hormone should be considered ...

High-resolution chromosome analysis of a 19-year-old female proband with syndromic intrahepatic ductular hypoplasia (Alagille syndrome, AWS) revealed an interstitial deletion of chromosome 20p with breakpoints provisionally located in or close to p11.22 and p12.2. Southern blots from digests of DNA of the proband and her chromosomally normal parents were hybridized with the human DNA probes pR12.21, HuPrPcDNA2, and pDS6-SgI, which have been mapped to the region 20 (p12-pter), and rehybridized with the F IX probe for calibration. Comparing the hybridization signals of the normally sized DNA fragments of the family, we found no evidence for loss of any of the three tested distal chromosome 20p loci in our proband. Furthermore, in situ hybridization with HuPrPcDNA2 revealed a specific accumulation of grains at or around the faint distal G band suspected to represent all or most of band p12.3 of the probands deleted 20p and at p12 of the normal chromosome 20. Thus the AWS of our proband is ...
Our laboratory studies genes important for embryonic development in mice, and the relation between mutations in these genes and both congenital and acquired human disease. Our analyses focus on the Notch pathway, an evolutionarily conserved cell communication and signaling system, and on genes of the Snail superfamily, which encode transcriptional repressor proteins.. We have created and analyzed numerous genetically engineered mouse models to understand the essential functions of individual components of these pathways. We have also generated mouse models for inherited human disease syndromes such as Alagille syndrome, and for common birth defects such as cleft palate, craniosynostosis, and congenital heart defects, such as outflow tract patterning defects and patent ductus arteriosus. Current areas of interest include the role of Notch ligands in cardiovascular development, and in skeletal muscle and mesenchymal stem cells.. ...
The treatment of alagille syndrome is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in each individual. Pediatricians, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, and other healthcare professionals may need to systematically and comprehensively plan treatment. Supplemental vitamins and nutrients may be needed. In some cases, a nasogastric tube or a gastrostomy tube must be used in order to ensure sufficient calorie absorption. The drug ursodeoxycholic acid is given to help improve bile flow, which can lead to a reduction in some symptoms such as itching (pruritus) or fatty deposits (xanthomas). Not all patients respond positively to pharmacologic and dietary therapies and may need to be treated via a surgical procedure known as partial biliary diversion. This surgical procedure is used to disrupt or divert recirculation of bile acids between the liver and the gastrointestinal tract. Liver transplantation may be necessary for patients with refractory disease. Cardiac or ...

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine have discovered that a protein called Jagged-1 stimulates human stem cells to differentiate into bone-producing cells. This protein could help both human and animal patients heal from bone fractures faster and may form the basis of treatments for a rare metabolic condition called Alagille syndrome.. The study, published in the journal Stem Cells, was authored by three members of Penn Vet´s departments of Clinical Studies-New Bolton Center and Animal Biology: postdoctoral researchers Fengchang Zhu and Mariya T. Sweetwyne and associate professor Kurt Hankenson, who also holds the Dean W. Richardson Chair in Equine Disease Research.. Last November, on the promise of these and other findings, Hankenson and his former doctoral student Mike Dishowitz launched a company, Skelegen, through Penn´s Center for Technology Transfer UPstart program. Skelegen´s focus is to continue to develop and improve a system for delivering ...

Neurogenic locus notch homolog protein 2 also known as notch 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NOTCH2 gene. NOTCH2 is associated with Alagille syndrome and Hajdu-Cheney syndrome. Notch 2 is a member of the notch family. Members of this Type 1 transmembrane protein family share structural characteristics including an extracellular domain consisting of multiple epidermal growth factor-like (EGF) repeats, and an intracellular domain consisting of multiple, different domain types. Notch family members play a role in a variety of developmental processes by controlling cell fate decisions. The Notch signaling network is an evolutionarily conserved intercellular signaling pathway that regulates interactions between physically adjacent cells. In Drosophilia, notch interaction with its cell-bound ligands (delta, serrate) establishes an intercellular signaling pathway that plays a key role in development. Homologues of the notch-ligands have also been identified in human, but precise ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Case report. T2 - Paucity of interlobular bile ducts in Chinese children. AU - Chiu, Hsiu Hui. AU - Chang, Mei Hwei. AU - Chen, Chi Long. AU - Hsu, Hong Yuan. AU - Ni, Yen Hsuan. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - Sixteen Chinese children with cholestasis since early infancy were diagnosed to have paucity of interlobular bile ducts (PILED) or its equivalent. Twelve children belonged to the syndromic group of PILBD and four children belonged to the non-syndromic group. A definite histological diagnosis of bile duct paucity was established in only two children (aged 4 and 9 months) during the first percutaneous needle biopsy. In the remaining 14 children a varying degree of bile duct destruction was evident in the follow up percutaneous or wedge liver biopsies. The evolving changes were characterized by inflammatory infiltration near or at the ductal wall, the presence of dysmorphic ductules, the degeneration of ductal epithelia and a progressive decrease of interlobular bile ducts. Of 10 ...
Given variability in data and limitation to single institution cohorts in previous studies, the goal of this project was to better define which histologic features are the strongest predictors of biliary atresia (BA) and identify parameters that may be of prognostic significance. This study utilized data and slide review from cholestatic infants that were prospectively enrolled in the multicenter ChiLDReN network to determine which histologic features: (1) could distinguish BA from non-BA causes of cholestasis [N=227]; (2) varied with respect to clinical parameters (including age); and (3) correlated with clinical outcome in BA patients after hepatoportoenterostomy (HPE) [N=316]. Except for patient age, central review pathologists were blinded to all clinical information and scored 26 histologic features based on consensus. Bile plugs in portal tracts and portal tract edema, when seen without bile duct paucity or features of idiopathic neonatal hepatitis (giant cell transformation and ...
