Delineation of the critical interval of Bardet-Biedl syndrome 1 (BBS1) to a small region of 11q13, through linkage and haplotype analysis of 91 pedigrees. (1/151)

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a genetically heterogeneous recessive disease characterized primarily by atypical retinitis pigmentosa, obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, and mental retardation. Despite the presence of at least five loci in the human genome, on chromosomes 2q, 3p, 11q, 15q and 16q, as many as 50% of the mutations appear to map to the BBS1 locus on 11q13. The recessive mode of inheritance and the genetic heterogeneity of the syndrome, as well as the inability to distinguish between different genetic loci by phenotypic analyses, have hindered efforts to delineate the 11q13 region as a first step toward cloning the mutated gene. To circumvent these difficulties, we collected a large number of BBS pedigrees of primarily North American and European origin and performed genetic analysis, using microsatellites from all known BBS genomic regions. Heterogeneity analysis established a 40.5% contribution of the 11q13 locus to BBS, and haplotype construction on 11q-linked pedigrees revealed several informative recombinants, defining the BBS1 critical interval between D11S4205 and D11S913, a genetic distance of 2.9 cM, equivalent to approximately 2.6 Mb. Loss of identity by descent in two consanguineous pedigrees was also observed in the region, potentially refining the region to 1.8 Mb between D11S1883 and D11S4944. The identification of multiple recombinants at the same position forms the basis for physical mapping efforts, coupled with mutation analysis of candidate genes, to identify the gene for BBS1.  (+info)

A founder effect in the newfoundland population reduces the Bardet-Biedl syndrome I (BBS1) interval to 1 cM. (2/151)

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder; major phenotypic findings include dysmorphic extremities, retinal dystrophy, obesity, male hypogenitalism, and renal anomalies. In the majority of northern European families with BBS, the syndrome is linked to a 26-cM region on chromosome 11q13. However, the finding, so far, of five distinct BBS loci (BBS1, 1q; BBS2, 16q; BBS3, 3p; BBS4, 15q; BBS5, 2q) has hampered the positional cloning of these genes. We use linkage disequilibrium (LD) mapping in an isolated founder population in Newfoundland to significantly reduce the BBS1 critical region. Extensive haplotyping in several unrelated BBS families of English descent revealed that the affected members were homozygous for overlapping portions of a rare, disease-associated ancestral haplotype on chromosome 11q13. The LD data suggest that the BBS1 gene lies in a 1-Mb, sequence-ready region on chromosome 11q13, which should enable its identification.  (+info)

New criteria for improved diagnosis of Bardet-Biedl syndrome: results of a population survey. (3/151)

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an autosomal recessive condition characterised by rod-cone dystrophy, postaxial polydactyly, central obesity, mental retardation, hypogonadism, and renal dysfunction. BBS expression varies both within and between families and diagnosis is often difficult. We sought to define the condition more clearly by studying 109 BBS patients and their families, the largest population surveyed to date. The average age at diagnosis was 9 years, which is late for such a debilitating condition, but the slow development of the clinical features of BBS probably accounts for this. Postaxial polydactyly had been present in 69% of patients at birth, but obesity had only begun to develop at around 2-3 years, and retinal degeneration had not become apparent until a mean age of 8.5 years. Our study identified some novel clinical features, including neurological, speech, and language deficits, behavioural traits, facial dysmorphism, and dental anomalies. In the light of these features we propose a revision of the diagnostic criteria, which may facilitate earlier diagnosis of this disorder. We present evidence for an overlapping phenotype with the Laurence-Moon syndrome and propose a unifying, descriptive label be adopted (polydactyly-obesity-kidney-eye syndrome). We report an increased prevalence of renal malformations and renal cell carcinoma in the unaffected relatives of BBS patients and suggest that these may be a consequence of heterozygosity for BBS genes. Our findings have important implications for the care of BBS patients and their unaffected relatives.  (+info)

Renal cancer and malformations in relatives of patients with Bardet-Biedl syndrome. (4/151)

BACKGROUND: Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an autosomal recessive disorder with five loci identified thus far. The spectrum of disease includes diverse malformations of the kidney and lower urinary tract. The incidence of BBS is approximately 1/100,000 with a predicted heterozygote frequency of 1/160, and it has been suggested that heterozygotes are at increased risk of obesity and hypertension. METHODS: We describe renal disease in relatives of 109 UK BBS patients. Using PCR with fluorescent microsatellite markers we amplified DNA derived from renal tumours of affected parents to determine whether there was loss of heterozygosity at any of four BBS loci and two other gene loci associated with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CC-RCC). RESULTS: CC-RCC was diagnosed in three of 180 BBS parents and there was loss of heterozygosity at BBS1 (11q13) in the tumour tissue of one of these subjects. In addition, there was a high incidence of renal agenesis in siblings of BBS patients and two BBS families were identified with apparently dominant inheritance of renal malformations. In one family we were able to demonstrate that renal malformations segregated with the BBS2 locus (16q21). CONCLUSIONS: Since all parents and two-thirds of siblings of BBS patients must be heterozygous for BBS mutations, our observations may implicate BBS genes in the pathogenesis of both renal cancer and malformations, both disorders of precursor cell growth and differentiation. We suggest these observations may have important implications for screening potential BBS carriers for kidney disease and may lead to a greater understanding of the aetiology of renal disease in the general population.  (+info)

Genetic and mutational analyses of a large multiethnic Bardet-Biedl cohort reveal a minor involvement of BBS6 and delineate the critical intervals of other loci. (5/151)

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized primarily by obesity, polydactyly, retinal dystrophy, and renal disease. The significant genetic and clinical heterogeneity of this condition have substantially hindered efforts to positionally clone the numerous BBS genes, because the majority of available pedigrees are small and the disorder cannot be assigned to any of the six known BBS loci. Consequently, the delineation of critical BBS intervals, which would accelerate the discovery of the underlying genetic defect(s), becomes difficult, especially for loci with minor contributions to the syndrome. We have collected a cohort of 163 pedigrees from diverse ethnic backgrounds and have evaluated them for mutations in the recently discovered BBS6 gene (MKKS) on chromosome 20 and for potential assignment of the disorder to any of the other known BBS loci in the human genome. Using a combination of mutational and haplotype analysis, we describe the spectrum of BBS6 alterations that are likely to be pathogenic; propose substantially reduced critical intervals for BBS2, BBS3, and BBS5; and present evidence for the existence of at least one more BBS locus. Our data also suggest that BBS6 is a minor contributor to the syndrome and that some BBS6 alleles may act in conjunction with mutations at other BBS loci to cause or modify the BBS phenotype.  (+info)

Positional cloning of a novel gene on chromosome 16q causing Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS2). (6/151)

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a genetically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder with the primary clinical features of obesity, pigmented retinopathy, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, mental retardation and renal anomalies. Associated features of the disorder include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. There are six known BBS loci, mapping to chromosomes 2, 3, 11, 15, 16 and 20. The BBS2 locus was initially mapped to an 18 cM interval on chromosome 16q21 with a large inbred Bedouin kindred. Further analysis of the Bedouin population allowed for the fine mapping of this locus to a 2 cM region distal to marker D16S408. Physical mapping and sequence analysis of this region resulted in the identification of a number of known genes and expressed sequence tag clusters. Mutation screening of a novel gene (BBS2) with a wide pattern of tissue expression revealed homozygous mutations in two inbred pedigrees, including the large Bedouin kindred used to initially identify the BBS2 locus. In addition, mutations were found in three of 18 unrelated BBS probands from small nuclear families.  (+info)

09/15: Comparative genomics of a conserved chromosomal region associated with a complex human phenotype. (7/151)

Three genes that encode related immunoglobulin superfamily molecules have recently been mapped to human chromosome 15 in the region q22.3-q23 and to the syntenic region on mouse chromosome 9. These genes presumably derived from gene duplications, and they are highly similar to Deleted in Colorectal Cancer (DCC), which functions as an axon guidance molecule during development of the nervous system. To find out whether additional genes of this class were present in a chromosomal cluster, we produced a comparative physical map within the region of synteny between mouse chromosome 9 and human chromosome 15. This interval overlaps the critical region for the fourth genetic locus for Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS4) in humans. Bardet-Biedl syndrome (OMIM 600374) is characterized by poly/syn/brachydactyly, retinal degeneration, hypogonadism, mental retardation, obesity, diabetes, and kidney abnormalities.

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by mental retardation, obesity, retinal degeneration, polydactyly and syndactyly, diabetes mellitus, hypogenitalism, renal dysplasia and short stature. Definitive molecular diagnosis for BBS is not currently available and counseling of affected families is based on the 25% recurrence risk consistent with autosomal recessive inheritance. Our case presents the first successful use of second trimester targeted sonographic anatomy scanning to prospectively identify a fetus affected with BBS, and indicates that ultrasound can be of critical importance in providing precise as well as timely prenatal diagnosis for families at risk for this serious disorder.  (+info)

Authors: Saida K, Inaba Y, Hirano M, Satake W, Toda T, Suzuki Y, Sudo A, Noda S, Hidaka Y, Hirabayashi K, Imai H, Kurokawa T, Koike K.. Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder characterized by rod-cone dystrophy, postaxial polydactyly, truncal obesity, hypogonadism, learning disability, and renal anomaly that are caused by ciliary dysfunction. 16 genes have been associated with the BBS phenotype. Although recent pathophysiological studies using animal models have shown that ciliary dysfunction may induce hydrocephalus, there have been no reports of BBS with intracranial hypertension. We here describe a 9-year-old Japanese girl who was diagnosed as having BBS and later received renal transplantation due to chronic renal failure. She also exhibited intracranial hypertension, including papilledema and increased intrathecal pressure (260-300mmH2O), but her brain magnetic resonance imaging was normal. No genetic abnormalities were detected by DNA chip analysis ...
This gene is a member of the Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) gene family. Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by severe pigmentary retinopathy, obesity, polydactyly, renal malformation and cognitive disability. The proteins encoded by BBS gene family members are structurally diverse. The similar phenotypes exhibited by mutations in BBS gene family members are likely due to the proteins shared roles in cilia formation and function. Many BBS proteins localize to the basal bodies, ciliary axonemes, and pericentriolar regions of cells. BBS proteins may also be involved in intracellular trafficking via microtubule-related transport. The protein encoded by this gene has sequence similarity to O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) transferases in plants and archaebacteria and in human forms a multi-protein BBSome complex with seven other BBS proteins. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016] ...

Purpose: Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a heterogeneous autosomal recessive inherited disorder with clinical features that include retinal degeneration, obesity and developmental anomalies. At least 17 BBS genes have been reported. Seven BBS proteins form a molecular complex known as the BBSome, and three additional BBS proteins form a second complex known as the BBS chaperone complex, which is required for BBSome assembly. Studies suggest that mutation of a novel centrosomal protein, CEP290, results in BBS and other ciliopathies. The purpose of the current study is to characterize physical and genetic interactions between CEP290 and other BBS genes, and determine whether these interactions likely contribute to BBS-like symptoms using mouse models.. Methods: We evaluated the physical interaction between CEP290 and other BBS proteins by immunoprecipitation and tested whether this interaction is required for the correct cocalization of CEP290 using immunofluorescence microscopy. To determine ...
Bardet-Biedl syndrome comprises several different diseases with a similar constellation of findings, including pigmentary retinopathy (with or without pigment deposits), obesity, polydactyly, hypogonadism, and cognitive disability. Patients with Bardet-Biedl syndrome typically demonstrate a severe but variable form of rod-cone dystrophy, usually sine pigmento, with a bulls-eye atrophic maculopathy (Fig 14-1). These disorders were previously classified as autosomal recessive, but molecular studies strongly suggest that many are multigenic, with 2 or even 3 different mutations contributing to the phenotype. Increasing evidence suggests that the primary functions of the proteins affected in Bardet-Biedl syndrome are to mediate and regulate microtubule-based intracellular transport processes.. ...
Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is primarily an autosomal recessive ciliopathy characterized by progressive retinal degeneration, obesity, cognitive impairment, polydactyly, and kidney anomalies. The disorder is genetically heterogeneous, with 11 BBS genes identified to date, which account for ~70% of affected families. We have combined single-nucleotide-polymorphism array homozygosity mapping with in silico analysis to identify a new BBS gene, BBS12. Patients from two Gypsy families were homozygous and haploidentical in a 6-Mb region of chromosome 4q27. FLJ35630 was selected as a candidate gene, because it was predicted to encode a protein with similarity to members of the type II chaperonin superfamily, which includes BBS6 and BBS10. We found pathogenic mutations in both Gypsy families, as well as in 14 other families of various ethnic backgrounds, indicating that BBS12 accounts for approximately 5% of all BBS cases. BBS12 is vertebrate specific and, together with BBS6 and BBS10, defines a novel branch of
The cardinal features of BBS are truncal obesity, intellectual impairment, renal anomalies, polydactyly, retinal degeneration and hypogenitalism. Each feature is discussed in detail below. The term truncal obesity refers to a condition where fat is disproportionately distributed onto the abdomen and chest rather than the arms and legs. Individuals can be described as having an apple-shape body type. Weight is usually normal at birth but weight gain is quickly evident through the first year of life in as many as 90% of people with BBS. Diabetes mellitus (specifically, type II diabetes, non-insulin dependent) has been estimated to affect up to 45% of patients with BBS. Weight management problems may further complicate problems with the heart and blood vessels seen in patients with BBS. The heart functions as a pump for the blood, moving the blood through the vessels that bring it throughout the body. The heart relies on valves that keep the flow moving in the forward direction. With age, ...

With the electrods placed at retina tissue the vision cortex of brain is stimulated.This is called bionic eye. First experiments started with 16 electrodes than the number of electrodes were increased to 60.There is a hope that if the number of electrods will be increased to 80 vision might get better either.. Except the system placed in the eye,with the help of a video camera put into the glasses images are taken and are moved with a cable to the electrods. It is reported that this camera system can only be used in hospitals,its not possible yet to use it outside. When the patient with bionic eye has to make rapid head movements the eye can perceive the new image only 10-15 minutes later.Briefly,the adaptation process takes too long.. 4- What type of vision can provide bionic eye? ...

Our comparative genomics-based predictions may be useful for identifying genes involved in human ciliopathies, including Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS), since the C. elegans orthologs of known human BBS genes contain X-box motifs and are required for normal dye filling in C. elegans ciliated neurons.
A major focus of the lab is the study of the primary cilium, a once-obscure cellular organelle that has recently been re-discovered for its role in a number of signaling pathways (Hedgehog, Planar Cell Polarity, PDGF,..). Most fascinatingly, molecular defects in cilium biogenesis lead to a variety hereditary disorders (so-called ciliopathies) characterized by retinal degeneration, kidney cysts, obesity, polydactyly, randomization of left-right asymmetry, etc. Our goal is to characterize these ciliopathies at the molecular and cellular levels using state-of-the art proteomics and microscopy. Our approach has already proven successful in the case of Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (see figure) and led to the discovery of a protein complex involved in vesicular transport to the primary cilium. ,nonwikionly,,a href=http://www.openwetware.org,,img src=http://openwetware.org/images/9/96/02_JoinOpenWetWare.png border=0/,,/a,,/nonwikionly, ...
Bardet Biedl Syndrome (BBS) is a complex disorder caused by cilia, the hair-like structures in many cells, malfunction. People with BBS may have extra fingers and toes, kidney failure, learning or developmental differences, obesity which is due to never feeling full or sated, and a progressive type of retinitis pigmentosa that starts in early childhood. There are at least 20 different genes that can cause BBS. Because vision loss is progressive in this condition, children should be monitored closely to be sure their teachers and friends know what they are seeing and when they might need accommodations. There is a lot of research going on in the Drack Research lab and the WIVR into why people with BBS lose vision and how to slow, prevent or restore it.. Genereviews: Bardet-Biedl Syndrome ...

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Md, experimented with both humans and animals and isolated the BBS4 protein, which has an indirect link to obesity.A genetic mutation in the BBS4 gene causes what is known as Bardet-Biedl syndrome?a syndrome that can cause obesity, learning disabilities, eye and kidney problems, and disruption in the bodys cell transport, which can result in cell death. Under normal circumstances, this protein transports molecules that guide the action of the cells internal transport system, which moves other proteins, cellular packages, and chromosomes. When the BBS4 gene is mutated, or not working properly, cell division stops and the cell dies. The way this particular protein affects obesity will require further study. ...
Cilia are antenna-like membrane-associated structures which play essential roles during development, and during the normal function of many cells throughout the body. Dysfunction of these organelles can lead to serious illnesses, involving deafness and blindness, as well as life-threatening complications such as kidney and liver disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, and obesity. These so-called ciliopathies are usually genetically inherited, and at present there are few, if any cures.. Following collaborations with Phil Beales (Institute of Child Health, UCL) on Bardet-Biedl Syndrome, and with Jan Marshall (Jackson Labs, USA) on Alström Syndrome, we are continuing to work in the field of human ciliary diseases. In collaboration with Colin Johnson (University of Leeds) we more recently characterized the role of the Meckel-Gruber Syndrome protein TMEM67 in the development of the cochlea.. In related public engagement projects I have worked with patient support groups such as Alström ...
Primary cilia, once considered vestigial organelles are now revealing themselves as crucial cellular components for cellular signalling and are capable of sensing their enivronment. A number of developmental pathways including Hedgehog and Wnt signalling require an intact cilium. Dysfunction of this signalling process can result in diseases of the retina, kidney, endocrine system, skeleton and nervous system. Many long described syndromes are now being ascribed to cilia pathogenetic lesions are are grouped as the ciliopathies. Many of these syndromes manifest cognitive impairment as well as disordered peripheral nervous system and sensory reception. We have been focussing on several of these diseaes and one in particular, Bardet-Biedl syndrome has been informing us of novel roles for the primary cilium. For example by generating animal models we have determined there are defects in olfactory responses, nociception, satiety (leading to gross obesity) and mental retardation. One of our key goals ...
MORM syndrome is an autosomal recessive congenital disorder This means that the disorder is present from birth and is likely the result of both healthy parents passing on a defective gene, associated with MORM syndrome, to their offspring. The disorder is not dependent on sex of the offspring, both male and female offspring are equally likely to inherit the disorder. The term MORM is used to describe the characteristics associated with the disorder which include mental retardation, truncal obesity, retinal dystrophy, and micropenis. The disorder shares similar characteristics with Bardet-Biedl syndrome and Cohen syndrome, both of which are autosomal recessive genetic disorders. MORM syndrome can be distinguished from the above disorders because symptoms appear at a young age. The syndrome is caused by a mutation in the INPP5E gene which can be located on chromosome 9 in humans. Further mapping resulted in the identification of a MORM syndrome locus on chromosome 9q34.3 between the genetic ...

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a disease that leads to degeneration of the rods and cones of the retina; it is one of the leading causes of inherited blindness.. Symptoms may appear at adolescence, but severe vision problems do not normally occur before early adulthood. In the early stages of the disease, people with RP experience loss of night vision and more difficulty seeing in low-light conditions. As the disease progresses, RP sufferers begin to lose peripheral vision and develop tunnel vision. In the most advanced stages, a person with RP may become completely blind.. Other forms of RP and related diseases include Usher syndrome, Lebers congenital amaurosis, rod-cone disease, and Bardet-Biedl syndrome, among others.. ...

Many syndromes feature pigmentary retinal changes consistent with RP. In fact, some of the genes known to be mutated in these syndromes can be mutated in patients with isolated RP. For example, BBS3 and BBS9 are linked to Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) which is characterized by RP, obesity, polydactyly, renal malformation, and hypogenitalism, but were also found to be mutated in patients with nonsyndromic RP. Other syndromes known to manifest with RP or RP-like lesions include Usher syndrome, Cohen syndrome, Cockayne syndrome, Refsum syndrome, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, and abetalipoproteinemia. ...
Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of Froelich syndrome. Comparisons may be useful for a differential diagnosis:. Prader Willi syndrome is a complex disorder affecting many systems in the body. It is diagnosed more often in males born after a prolonged, delayed birth often in the breech position and is characterized by muscular weakness and failure to thrive during infancy. As the child grows there is a decrease in the function of the testes or ovaries (hypogonadism), short stature, and impaired intellectual capabilities. The need to eat an extraordinary amount of food (hyperphagia) usually develops between 1 and 3 years of age. If left uncontrolled, the obesity of Prader Willi syndrome can lead to life- threatening heart and lung complications.

Compund heterozygous mutations in PNPLA6 (19p13.2), coding for neuropathy target esterase, have been found in several patients presumed to have this condition. Autosomal recessive inheritance has been proposed on the basis of a single family in which an affected brother and sister were born to first cousin parents. The relationship of this disorder to that found in two cousins, offspring of consanguineous matings, described as cone-rod congenital amaurosis associated with congenital hypertrichosis: an autosomal recessive condition (204110 ) is unknown. They were described as having visual impairment from birth and profound photophobia. Fundus changes were minimal with a bulls eye pattern of pigment changes in the macula described as indicative of a rod-cone congenital amaurosis. ERG responses were unrecordable. These individuals apparently did not have other somatic, psychomotor or neurologic deficits.. Mutations in PNPLA6 occur in other conditions including a form of Bardet-Biedl Syndrome ...

A mutation in the tub gene causes maturity-onset obesity, insulin resistance, and sensory deficits. In contrast to the rapid juvenile-onset weight gain seen in diabetes (db) and obese (ob) mice, obesity in tubby mice develops gradually, and strongly resembles the late-onset obesity seen in the human population. Excessive deposition of adipose tissue eventually leads to a twofold increase of body weight. Tubby mice also suffer retinal degeneration and neurosensory hearing loss. The tripartite character of the tubby phenotype shows striking similarity to human obesity syndromes, such as Alstrom and Bardet-Biedl. Here we report the identification of a G --| T transversion in a candidate gene that abolishes a donor splice site in the 3 coding region and results in a larger transcript containing the unspliced intron. This alteration is predicted to replace the 44-carboxyterminal amino acids with a 20-amino-acid sequence not found in the wide-type protein. Additionally, a second, prematurely
Intraflagellar transport (IFT) is essential for assembly and maintenance of cilia and flagella as well as ciliary motility and signaling. IFT is mediated by multisubunit complexes, including IFT-A, IFT-B, and the BBSome, in concert with kinesin and dynein motors. Under high salt conditions, purified IFT-B complex dissociates into a core subcomplex composed of at least nine subunits and at least five peripherally associated proteins. Using the visible immunoprecipitation assay, which we recently developed as a convenient protein-protein interaction assay, we determined the overall architecture of the IFT-B complex, which can be divided into core and peripheral subcomplexes composed of 10 and 6 subunits, respectively ...

This sequence change replaces serine with glycine at codon 332 of the BBS2 protein (p.Ser332Gly). The serine residue is moderately conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between serine and glycine. This variant is not present in population databases (ExAC no frequency). This variant has not been reported in the literature in individuals with BBS2-related conditions. Algorithms developed to predict the effect of missense changes on protein structure and function (SIFT, PolyPhen-2, Align-GVGD) all suggest that this variant is likely to be tolerated, but these predictions have not been confirmed by published functional studies and their clinical significance is uncertain. In summary, the available evidence is currently insufficient to determine the role of this variant in disease. Therefore, it has been classified as a Variant of Uncertain Significance ...
