Antenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. (1/23)

Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by stippled epiphyses and rhizomelic shortening of the long bones. Most fetuses with the disorder die in utero or shortly thereafter, and the few that survive suffer severe debility and profound mental retardation. Death ensues in the first decade of life. Relatively few reports discuss antenatal ultrasonographic diagnosis of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. We describe the prospective antenatal diagnosis of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata in a fetus with no family history of the disorder, based on the sonographic findings of severe rhizomelic limb shortening in combination with premature ossification and stippling of multiple epiphyses. The ultrasonographic features and differential diagnosis of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata are elaborated.  (+info)

Ether lipid biosynthesis: alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase protein deficiency leads to reduced dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase activities. (2/23)

Recent studies have indicated that two peroxisomal enzymes involved in ether lipid synthesis, i.e., dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase and alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase, are directed to peroxisomes by different targeting signals, i.e., peroxisomal targeting signal type 1 and type 2, respectively. In this study, we describe a new human fibroblast cell line in which alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase was found to be deficient both at the level of enzyme activity and enzyme protein. At the cDNA level, a 128 base pair deletion was found leading to a premature stop. Remarkably, dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase activity was strongly reduced to a level comparable to the activities measured in fibroblasts from patients affected by the classical form of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (caused by a defect in peroxisomal targeting signal type 2 import). Dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase activity was completely normal in another alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase activity-deficient patient. Fibroblasts from this patient showed normal levels of the synthase protein and inactivity results from a point mutation leading to an amino acid substitution. These results strongly suggest that the activity of dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase is dependent on the presence of alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase protein. This interpretation implies that the deficiency of dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase (targeted by a peroxisomal targeting signal type 1) in the classic form of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is a consequence of the absence of the alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase protein (targeted by a peroxisomal targeting signal type 2).  (+info)

MR imaging and MR spectroscopy in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. (3/23)

A case of rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata was investigated with MR imaging of the brain and hydrogen-1 MR spectroscopy of the brain and blood. Areas with abnormal signal hyperintensity on T2-weighted images or hypointensity on T1-weighted images were detected in the subcortical white matter. MR spectroscopy of the brain showed that normal-appearing white matter was characterized by increased levels of mobile lipids and myo-inositol, reduced levels of choline, and the presence of acetate. The importance of these metabolic anomalies is correlated to the deficiency in plasmalogen biosynthesis.  (+info)

Functional studies on human Pex7p: subcellular localization and interaction with proteins containing a peroxisome-targeting signal type 2 and other peroxins. (4/23)

Pex7p is a WD40-containing protein involved in peroxisomal import of proteins containing an N-terminal peroxisome-targeting signal (PTS2). The interaction of human recombinant Pex7p expressed in different hosts/systems with its PTS2 ligand and other peroxins was analysed using various experimental approaches. Specific binding of human Pex7p to PTS2 could be demonstrated only when Pex7p was formed in vitro by a coupled transcription/translation system or synthesized in vivo in Chinese hamster ovary K1 cells transfected with a construct coding for a Pex7p-green fluorescent protein (GFP) fusion protein. Apparently, no cofactors are required and only monomeric Pex7p binds to PTS2. The interaction is reduced upon cysteine alkylation and is impaired upon truncation of the N-terminus of Pex7p. Interaction of Pex7p with other peroxins could not be demonstrated in bacterial or yeast two-hybrid screens, or in pull-down binding assays. The GFP fusion proteins, tagged at either the N- or C-terminus, were able to restore PTS2 import in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata fibroblasts, and Pex7p-GFP was located both in the lumen of peroxisomes and in the cytosol.  (+info)

Inactivation of ether lipid biosynthesis causes male infertility, defects in eye development and optic nerve hypoplasia in mice. (5/23)

Although known for almost 80 years, the physiological role of plasmalogens (PLs), the major mammalian ether lipids (ELs), is still enigmatic. Humans that lack ELs suffer from rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP), a peroxisomal disorder usually resulting in death in early childhood. In order to learn more about the functions of ELs, we generated a mouse model for RCDP by a targeted disruption of the dihydroxyacetonephosphate acyltransferase gene. The mutant mice revealed multiple abnormalities, such as male infertility, defects in eye development, cataract and optic nerve hypoplasia, some of which were also observed in RCDP. Mass spectroscopic analysis demonstrated the presence of highly unsaturated fatty acids including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in brain PLs and the occurrence of PLs in lipid raft microdomains (LRMs) isolated from brain myelin. In mutants, PLs were completely absent and the concentration of brain DHA was reduced. The marker proteins flotillin-1 and F3/contactin were found in brain LRMs in reduced concentrations. In addition, the gap junctional protein connexin 43, known to be recruited to LRMs and essential for lens development and spermatogenesis, was down-regulated in embryonic fibroblasts of the EL-deficient mice. Free cholesterol, an important constituent of LRMs, was found in these fibroblasts to be accumulated in a perinuclear compartment. These data suggest that the EL-deficient mice allow the identification of new phenotypes not related so far to EL-deficiency (male sterility, defects in myelination and optic nerve hypoplasia) and indicate that PLs are required for the correct assembly and function of LRMs.  (+info)

Impaired neuronal migration and endochondral ossification in Pex7 knockout mice: a model for rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. (6/23)

Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata is a human autosomal recessive disorder characterized by skeletal, eye and brain abnormalities. The disorder is caused by mutations in the PEX7 gene, which encodes the receptor for a class of peroxisomal matrix enzymes. We describe the generation and characterization of a Pex7 mouse knockout (Pex7(-/-)). Pex7(-/-) mice are born severely hypotonic and have a growth impairment. Mortality in Pex7(-/-) mice is highest in the perinatal period although some Pex7(-/-) mice survived beyond 18 months. Biochemically Pex7(-/-) mice display the abnormalities related to a Pex7 deficiency, i.e. a severe depletion of plasmalogens, impaired alpha-oxidation of phytanic acid and impaired beta-oxidation of very-long-chain fatty acids. In the intermediate zone of the developing cerebral cortex Pex7(-/-) mice have an increase in neuronal density. In vivo neuronal birthdating revealed that Pex7(-/-) mice have a delay in neuronal migration. Analysis of bone ossification in newborn Pex7(-/-) mice revealed a defect in ossification of distal bone elements of the limbs as well as parts of the skull and vertebrae. These findings demonstrate that Pex7 knockout mice provide an important model to study the role of peroxisomal functioning in the pathogenesis of the human disorder.  (+info)

The import receptor Pex7p and the PTS2 targeting sequence. (7/23)

This chapter concerns one branch of the peroxisome import pathway for newly-synthesized peroxisomal proteins, specifically the branch for matrix proteins that contain a peroxisome targeting sequence type 2 (PTS2). The structure and utilization of the PTS2 are discussed, as well as the properties of the receptor, Pex7p, which recognizes the PTS2 sequence and conveys these proteins to the common translocation machinery in the peroxisome membrane. We also describe the recent evidence that this receptor recycles into the peroxisome matrix and back out to the cytosol in the course of its function. Pex7p is assisted in its functioning by several species-specific auxiliary proteins that are described in the following chapter.  (+info)

Peroxisome biogenesis disorders. (8/23)

Defects in PEX genes impair peroxisome assembly and multiple metabolic pathways confined to this organelle, thus providing the biochemical and molecular bases of the peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBD). PBD are divided into two types--Zellweger syndrome spectrum (ZSS) and rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP). Biochemical studies performed in blood and urine are used to screen for the PBD. DNA testing is possible for all of the disorders, but is more challenging for the ZSS since 12 PEX genes are known to be associated with this spectrum of PBD. In contrast, PBD-RCDP is associated with defects in the PEX7 gene alone. Studies of the cellular and molecular defects in PBD patients have contributed significantly to our understanding of the role of each PEX gene in peroxisome assembly.  (+info)

Chondrodysplasia punctata: Chondrodysplasia punctata is a very rare, little-understood disorder in which spots of opaque calcifications are observed in the epiphyseal cartilage at birth. Many infants die within the first year; those who live may exhibit dwarfism, mental retardation, and congenital cataracts.
Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP) is a developmental disorder characterized by hypotonia, cataracts, abnormal ossification, impaired motor development, and intellectual disability. The underlying etiology of RCDP is a deficiency in the biosynthesis of ether phospholipids, of which plasmalogens are the most abundant form in nervous tissue and myelin; however, the role of plasmalogens in the peripheral nervous system is poorly defined. Here, we used mouse models of RCDP and analyzed the consequence of plasmalogen deficiency in peripheral nerves. We determined that plasmalogens are crucial for Schwann cell development and differentiation and that plasmalogen defects impaired radial sorting, myelination, and myelin structure. Plasmalogen insufficiency resulted in defective protein kinase B (AKT) phosphorylation and subsequent signaling, causing overt activation of glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) in nerves of mutant mice. Treatment with GSK3β inhibitors, lithium, or ...
Chondrodysplasia punctata (CDP) is a heterogenous group of skeletal dysplasias characterized by aberrant bone mineralization, manifesting radiologically as epiphyseal stippling. Among this group, brachytelephalangic dysplasia, a benign form of CDP (CDPX1), is probably under-reported. It is an X-linked recessive disorder and is characterized by a flat nasal tip, short columella and maxillary hypoplasia, involvement of terminal phalanges, and stippled chondrodystrophy. This paper presents a clinical series of 13 patients with brachytelephalangic dysplasia. These patients enrolled during 2002-2006 were re-evaluated and their dysmorphic features were compiled in a predesigned proforma. Skeletal survey, karyotype, cardiac evaluation, and ophthalmic evaluation were planned for all the cases. Out of 13 patients, 10 were males and three were females. All patients had flat facies, a depressed nasal bridge, a hypoplastic nose, a short philtrum, notched alae nasi, brachydactyly, and hypoplastic terminal phalanges.

In some cancers such as gastrointestinal there is an increase in these compounds and in others a decrease, explains the principal investigator of this study, Montserrat ...
Chondrodysplasia in the most general sense is sometimes called a syndrome, other times part of a syndrome, the definition of that word being a collection of interconnected symptoms. Some dogs may have many, some a few, and others no readily observable symptoms. The clinical signs may be very mild, from almost undetectable bowing or shortening of the legs, to obvious skeletal deformity and the presence of several health problems. Chondrodysplasia Punctata is one name applied to a syndrome of multi-systemic disorders, and is so-called because of the dots of calcium phosphate deposits in the softer cartilage. It reminds me of the school of art made popular by Georges Seurat called Pointillism. This genetic-metabolic problem has various skeletal expressions. Depending on the particular variety, the mode of inheritance could be autosomal recessive or dominant, or X-chromosome-linked recessive or dominant, some with full penetrance, and some not.. Besides skeletal indications, there are eye ...

Keutel syndrome (KS) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by abnormal diffuse cartilage calcification, hypoplasia of the mid-face, peripheral pulmonary stenosis, hearing loss, short distal phalanges (tips) of the fingers and mild mental retardation. Individuals with KS often present with peripheral pulmonary stenosis, brachytelephalangism, sloping forehead, midface hypoplasia, and receding chin. It is associated with abnormalities in the gene coding for matrix gla protein (MGP). Being an autosomal recessive disorder, it may be inherited from two unaffected, abnormal MGP-carrying parents. Thus, people who inherit two affected MGP genes will likely inherit KS. It was first identified in 1972 as a novel rare genetic disorder sharing similar symptoms with chondrodysplasia punctata. Multiple forms of chondrodysplasia punctata share symptoms consistent with KS including abnormal cartilage calcification, forceful respiration, brachytelephalangism, hypotonia, psychomotor delay, ...

Acromesomelic dysplasia, Hunter-Thompson type (AMDH), Chondrodysplasia, Grebe type (AMDG) and Fibular hypoplasia and complex brachydactyly. Acromesomelic dysplasia, Hunter-Thompson type (AMDH; MIM 201250) and Chondrodysplasia, Grebe type (AMDG, MIM 200700) are autosomal recessive disorders caused by mutations in the growth/differentiation factor 5 (GDF5) gene. AMDH and AMDG are characterized by severe prenatal onset growth retardation restricted to the limbs. The middle and distal segments of the limbs are more severely affected than the proximal parts. In AMDH, the lower limbs are more profoundly affected than the upper limbs and large joint dislocations are common. In AMDG, hypomelia is more severe, but the upper and lower limbs are equally affected. Reduction or absence of the proximal and middle phalanges of the fingers and toes is seen in both disorders; however, this anomaly is more prominent in AMDG with all fingers and toes ball-shaped and functionless. The axial skeleton is not affected ...
Chondrodystrophy (CDDY and IVDD Risk) and Chondrodysplasia (CDPA). Chondrodysdrophy (CDDY) is a trait that defines many dog breeds and is characterized by reduction of long bone length (shorter legs) as a consequence of early changes in the structure of growth plates. CDDY can also impact health of animals through an abnormal process that causes premature degeneration of the intervertebral discs. Two retrogene insertions of functional fibroblast growth factor 4 (FGF4) explain short-legged phenotypes of dogs. FGF4 gene is involved in many biological processes including bone development.. The first insertion discovered (Parker et al 2009) is an FGF4-retrogene insertion in dog chromosome 18 (FGF4-18). This FGF4-18 insertion explains a short-legged phenotype known as chondrodysplasia (CDPA) in breeds such as Basset Hound, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Dachshunds, West Highland White Terriers and Scottish Terriers. CDPA inheritance is considered to follow an autosomal dominant mode.. The Chondrodysdrophy ...
Plasmalogen replacement therapy would be of substantial benefit in RCDP, and may also be of benefit in disorders that feature secondary plasmalogen deficiency. Although plasmalogens are mostly biosynthesized, small amounts can be obtained from dietary compounds [100]. The highest amounts are found in oils of invertebrate marine animals, such as shark liver and krill oil [101]. The average adult is estimated to consume 10-100 mg of 1-0-octadecyl-sn-glycerol (batyl alcohol) daily [102]. Although it is the alkylglycerol content of these dietary compounds that has been more extensively studied, there is some evidence that intestinal absorption of phospholipids is superior to that of alkylglycerols [101].. Dietary alkylglycerols are absorbed intact, however the ether bond can be subsequently oxidized in intestinal mucosal cells [103]. As summarized by Das et al. [104] in rodent feeding studies, only 1-0-alkylglycerols, saturated or monounsaturated, of appropriate chain length (C15-19) can be ...

From UniProt:. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder complementation group 5 (PBD-CG5): A peroxisomal disorder arising from a failure of protein import into the peroxisomal membrane or matrix. The peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBD group) are genetically heterogeneous with at least 14 distinct genetic groups as concluded from complementation studies. Include disorders are: Zellweger syndrome (ZWS), neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD), infantile Refsum disease (IRD), and classical rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP). ZWS, NALD and IRD are distinct from RCDP and constitute a clinical continuum of overlapping phenotypes known as the Zellweger spectrum (PBD-ZSS). [MIM:614866]. Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 5B (PBD5B): A peroxisome biogenesis disorder that includes neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD) and infantile Refsum disease (IRD), two milder manifestations of the Zellweger disease spectrum. The clinical course of patients with the NALD and IRD presentation is variable and may include ...
Phyllorhiza punctata is a species of jellyfish, also known as the floating bell, Australian spotted jellyfish or the white-spotted jellyfish. It is native to the West Pacific from Australia to Japan, but has been introduced widely elsewhere. It feeds primarily on zooplankton. P. punctata generally can reach up to 50 centimetres (20 in) in bell diameter, but in October 2007, one 72 cm (28 in) wide, perhaps the largest ever recorded, was found on Sunset Beach, North Carolina.[citation needed] True jellyfish go through a two-stage life cycle which consists of a medusa stage (adult) and a polyp stage (juvenile). In the medusa stage male jellyfish release sperm into the water column and the female jellyfish gathers the sperm into her mouth where she holds the eggs. Once fertilization occurs and larvae are formed they leave their mother and settle to the ocean floor. Once on the bottom a polyp form occurs and this form reproduces asexually by cloning or dividing itself into other polyps. Jellyfish ...
Chondrodystrophy (CDDY with IVDD Risk) and Chondrodysplasia (CDPA) The test checks for two mutations: CDDY with IVDD Risk, and CDPA. Chondrodystrophy CDDY (FGF4-18) which causes short legs and the risk of developing Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD). Chondrodysplasia CDPA (FGF4-12), which causes the short legged phenotype in a number of breeds. Chondrodystrophy (CDDY with IVDD Risk) is a trait that is common to many dog breeds and it is characterised by shorter legs due to shorter long bones. CDDY can also be associated with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) due to premature degeneration of the intervertbral disc. The intervertebral disc lie between the vertebrae and it is made of a cartilage which separate vertebrae from each other, absorb shocks and allow slight movement of the vertebrae. In affected dogs, premature calcification of part of the disc at early age (from birth to 1 year of age) results in degeneration of all discs in young dogs. These abnormal discs are

Enzymes containing flavin cofactors are predominantly involved in redox reactions in numerous cellular processes where the protein environment modulates the chemical reactivity of the flavin to either transfer one or two electrons. Some flavoenzymes catalyze reactions with no net redox change. In these reactions, the protein environment modulates the reactivity of the flavin to perform novel chemistries. Recent mechanistic and structural data supporting novel flavin functionalities in reactions catalyzed by chorismate synthase, type II isopentenyl diphosphate isomerase, UDP-galactopyranose mutase, and alkyl-dihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase are presented in this review. In these enzymes, the flavin plays either a direct role in acid/base reactions or as a nucleophile or electrophile. In addition, the flavin cofactor is proposed to function as a
Chondrodysplasia of Texel sheep is a newly described recessively inherited disorder distinct from other chondrodysplasias described in sheep. Phenotypically normal at birth, affected lambs develop microscopic lesions as early as 9 days of age, and usually demonstrate gross deformities and markedly reduced rates of bone growth by 2 to 3 weeks. Individual bone growth rates are most severely affected in the proximal bones of the forelimbs. Chondrodysplastic lambs typically have short stature, angular limb deformities, a barrel-shaped chest and a wide-based stance. Gross lesions include tracheal narrowing and contortion, enlarged costochondral junctions, and erosion of articular cartilage in major limb joints. Microscopic lesions are confined to hyaline cartilage, and are characterised by degeneration of the interterritorial matrix and dense perichondrocytic rings consisting predominantly of type VI collagen. These lesions are identical in appearance to those in achondrogenesis 1b and diastrophic ...

Human peroxisome biogenesis disorders are lethal genetic diseases in which abnormal peroxisome assembly compromises overall peroxisome and cellular function. Peroxisomes are ubiquitous membrane-bound organelles involved in several important biochemical processes, notably lipid metabolism and the use of reactive oxygen species for detoxification. Using cultured cells, we systematically characterized the peroxisome assembly phenotypes associated with dsRNA-mediated knockdown of 14 predicted Drosophila homologs of PEX genes (encoding peroxins; required for peroxisome assembly and linked to peroxisome biogenesis disorders), and confirmed that at least 13 of them are required for normal peroxisome assembly. We also demonstrate the relevance of Drosophila as a genetic model for the early developmental defects associated with the human peroxisome biogenesis disorders. Mutation of the PEX1 gene is the most common cause of peroxisome biogenesis disorders and is one of the causes of the most severe form ...
Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of Schmid type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia. Comparisons may be useful for differential diagnosis:. McKusick type metaphyseal chondrodysplasia, also known as cartilage-hair hypoplasia, is an extremely rare inherited disorder characterized by unusually fine, sparse hair and abnormal development of the cartilage and subsequent bone formation in the long bones of the arms and legs (metaphyseal chondrodysplasia), resulting in unusually short arms and legs and short stature (short-limbed dwarfism). Most affected individuals exhibit impairment of certain white blood cells (T-cells) that play an important role in helping the bodys immune system fight certain infections (cellular immunodeficiency). In addition, affected individuals may also exhibit impaired absorption of certain necessary nutrients (malabsorption); abnormally low levels of certain white blood cells in the body (neutropenia and lymphocytopenia); low levels of circulating red ...

Purpose: : We aim to perform pre-clinical gene therapy studies for Retinitis Punctata Albescens (RPA). RPA is caused by mutations in the RLBP1 gene, which codes for the visual cycle protein CRALBP. A CRALBP-deficiency results in a malfunction of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and leads to RPE and photoreceptor (PR) death. The early apparition of characteristic clinical signs (e.g. night blindness in childhood and small white dots observed by fundoscopy) allows an early diagnosis thus providing a large therapeutic window. An Rlbp1-deficient mouse model has been previously generated but it does not fully reproduce the disease course. As a consequence, in parallel to this model, we are generating an in vitro human retinal model of the RPA RPE for gene transfer studies. Methods: : We transferred the white Rlbp1-deficient mouse colony onto a pigmented background. In parallel, three RPA patients volunteered for skin biopsies from which we generated a stock of CRALBP1-deficient fibroblasts. These ...
Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, Missouri type, metaphyseal anadysplasia 1, metaphyseal anadysplasia 2 and metaphyseal dysplasia, Spahr type:. Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia, Missouri type (SEMD, Missouri type; MIM 602111) is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by missense mutations in the prodomain of matrix metalloproteinase 13 (MMP13). SEMD, Missouri type is allelic to metaphyseal anadysplasia 1 (MANDP1; MIM 602111) and they most likely represent a phenotypic spectrum rather than discrete disorders. Both SEMD, Missouri type and MANDP1 are disorders characterized by similar, if not identical, transient metaphyseal abnormalities including flaring, irregularity and a widened growth plate that improve spontaneously. Other findings include pear-shaped vertebrae in childhood, delayed bone age, rhizomelic shortening especially of the lower limbs, genu varum, tibial, femoral, radial and ulnar bowing, small flattened epiphyses and irregular endplates. An autosomal recessive form of MANDP1, caused ...

LDH zymograms as explained under results show the presence of two detectable activities in C. punctata and C. striatus that typically correspond to two loci of LDH namely LDH-A and LDH-B (Table-2). The inferred homotetrameric composition of the representative LDH activities of A and B loci and that of their random heterotetramers (-A1B3, -A2B2, -A3B1) is also confirmed by heat inactivation (results not shown here). Published evidence also reveals the existence of a third locus C that is temporally expressed in fishes [18]. Previously it was referred to as E locus because it was known to predominantly function in regions of nervous system concerned with vision, but subsequently an orthologous expression was found in other tissue such as the liver and thus renamed as C [1]. It is estimated that C-locus might have evolved as a result of duplication of B [2-3,8] whereas predecessor of A and B was a single gene of more remote origin.. Whitt and Maeda [19] have also reported that blind cave fish, ...
