Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

A molecular pathway revealing a genetic basis for human cardiac and craniofacial defects. (1/1012)

Microdeletions of chromosome 22q11 are the most common genetic defects associated with cardiac and craniofacial anomalies in humans. A screen for mouse genes dependent on dHAND, a transcription factor implicated in neural crest development, identified Ufd1, which maps to human 22q11 and encodes a protein involved in degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. Mouse Ufd1 was specifically expressed in most tissues affected in patients with 22q11 deletion syndrome. The human UFD1L gene was deleted in all 182 patients studied with 22q11 deletion, and a smaller deletion of approximately 20 kilobases that removed exons 1 to 3 of UFD1L was found in one individual with features typical of 22q11 deletion syndrome. These data suggest that UFD1L haploinsufficiency contributes to the congenital heart and craniofacial defects seen in 22q11 deletion.  (+info)

Complete exon-intron organization of the mouse fibulin-1 gene and its comparison with the human fibulin-1 gene. (2/1012)

Fibulin-1 is a 90 kDa calcium-binding protein present in the extracellular matrix and in the blood. Two major variants, C and D, differ in their C-termini as well as the ability to bind the basement membrane protein nidogen. Here we characterized genomic clones encoding the mouse fibulin-1 gene, which contains 18 exons spanning at least 75 kb of DNA. The two variants are generated by alternative splicing of exons in the 3' end. By searching the database we identified most of the exons encoding the human fibulin-1 gene and showed that its exon-intron organization is similar to that of the mouse gene.  (+info)

Microdeletion 22q11 and oesophageal atresia. (3/1012)

Oesophageal atresia (OA) is a congenital defect associated with additional malformations in 30-70% of the cases. In particular, OA is a component of the VACTERL association. Since some major features of the VACTERL association, including conotruncal heart defect, radial aplasia, and anal atresia, have been found in patients with microdeletion 22q11.2 (del(22q11.2)), we have screened for del(22q11.2) by fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH) in 15 syndromic patients with OA. Del(22q11.2) was detected in one of them, presenting with OA, tetralogy of Fallot, anal atresia, neonatal hypocalcaemia, and subtle facial anomalies resembling those of velocardiofacial syndrome. The occurrence of del(22q11.2) in our series of patients with OA is low (1/15), but this chromosomal anomaly should be included among causative factors of malformation complexes with OA. In addition, clinical variability of del(22q11.2) syndrome is further corroborated with inclusion of OA in the list of the findings associated with the deletion.  (+info)

Der(22) syndrome and velo-cardio-facial syndrome/DiGeorge syndrome share a 1.5-Mb region of overlap on chromosome 22q11. (4/1012)

Derivative 22 (der[22]) syndrome is a rare disorder associated with multiple congenital anomalies, including profound mental retardation, preauricular skin tags or pits, and conotruncal heart defects. It can occur in offspring of carriers of the constitutional t(11;22)(q23;q11) translocation, owing to a 3:1 meiotic malsegregation event resulting in partial trisomy of chromosomes 11 and 22. The trisomic region on chromosome 22 overlaps the region hemizygously deleted in another congenital anomaly disorder, velo-cardio-facial syndrome/DiGeorge syndrome (VCFS/DGS). Most patients with VCFS/DGS have a similar 3-Mb deletion, whereas some have a nested distal deletion endpoint resulting in a 1.5-Mb deletion, and a few rare patients have unique deletions. To define the interval on 22q11 containing the t(11;22) breakpoint, haplotype analysis and FISH mapping were performed for five patients with der(22) syndrome. Analysis of all the patients was consistent with 3:1 meiotic malsegregation in the t(11;22) carrier parent. FISH-mapping studies showed that the t(11;22) breakpoint occurred in the same interval as the 1.5-Mb distal deletion breakpoint for VCFS. The deletion breakpoint of one VCFS patient with an unbalanced t(18;22) translocation also occurred in the same region. Hamster-human somatic hybrid cell lines from a patient with der(22) syndrome and a patient with VCFS showed that the breakpoints occurred in an interval containing low-copy repeats, distal to RANBP1 and proximal to ZNF74. The presence of low-copy repetitive sequences may confer susceptibility to chromosome rearrangements. A 1.5-Mb region of overlap on 22q11 in both syndromes suggests the presence of dosage-dependent genes in this interval.  (+info)

Methylation of the ABL1 promoter in chronic myelogenous leukemia: lack of prognostic significance. (5/1012)

The BCR-ABL chromosomal translocation is a central event in the pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). One of the ABL1 promoters (Pa) and the coding region of the gene are usually translocated intact to the BCR locus, but the translocated promoter appears to be silent in most cases. Recently, hypermethylation of Pa was demonstrated in CML and was proposed to mark advanced stages of the disease. To study this issue, we measured Pa methylation in CML using Southern blot analysis. Of 110 evaluable samples, 23 (21%) had no methylation, 17 (15%) had minimal (<15%) methylation, 12 (11%) had moderate methylation (15% to 25%), and 58 (53%) had high levels of methylation (>25%) at the ABL1 locus. High methylation was more frequent in advanced cases of CML. Among the 76 evaluable patients in early chronic phase (ECP), a major cytogenetic response with interferon-based therapy was observed in 14 of 34 patients with high methylation compared with 19 of 42 among the others (41% v 45%; P value not significant). At a median follow-up of 7 years, there was no significant difference in survival by ABL1 methylation category. Among patients who achieved a major cytogenetic response, low levels of methylation were associated with a trend towards improved survival, but this trend did not reach statistical significance. Thus, Pa methylation in CML is associated with disease progression but does not appear to predict for survival or response to interferon-based therapy.  (+info)

Low-copy repeats mediate the common 3-Mb deletion in patients with velo-cardio-facial syndrome. (6/1012)

Velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS) is the most common microdeletion syndrome in humans. It occurs with an estimated frequency of 1 in 4, 000 live births. Most cases occur sporadically, indicating that the deletion is recurrent in the population. More than 90% of patients with VCFS and a 22q11 deletion have a similar 3-Mb hemizygous deletion, suggesting that sequences at the breakpoints confer susceptibility to rearrangements. To define the region containing the chromosome breakpoints, we constructed an 8-kb-resolution physical map. We identified a low-copy repeat in the vicinity of both breakpoints. A set of genetic markers were integrated into the physical map to determine whether the deletions occur within the repeat. Haplotype analysis with genetic markers that flank the repeats showed that most patients with VCFS had deletion breakpoints in the repeat. Within the repeat is a 200-kb duplication of sequences, including a tandem repeat of genes/pseudogenes, surrounding the breakpoints. The genes in the repeat are GGT, BCRL, V7-rel, POM121-like, and GGT-rel. Physical mapping and genomic fingerprint analysis showed that the repeats are virtually identical in the 200-kb region, suggesting that the deletion is mediated by homologous recombination. Examination of two three-generation families showed that meiotic intrachromosomal recombination mediated the deletion.  (+info)

Human pancreatic islets express mRNA species encoding two distinct catalytically active isoforms of group VI phospholipase A2 (iPLA2) that arise from an exon-skipping mechanism of alternative splicing of the transcript from the iPLA2 gene on chromosome 22q13.1. (7/1012)

An 85-kDa Group VI phospholipase A2 enzyme (iPLA2) that does not require Ca2+ for catalysis has recently been cloned from three rodent species. A homologous 88-kDa enzyme has been cloned from human B-lymphocyte lines that contains a 54-amino acid insert not present in the rodent enzymes, but human cells have not previously been observed to express catalytically active iPLA2 isoforms other than the 88-kDa protein. We have cloned cDNA species that encode two distinct iPLA2 isoforms from human pancreatic islet RNA and a human insulinoma cDNA library. One isoform is an 85-kDa protein (short isoform of human iPLA2 (SH-iPLA2)) and the other an 88-kDa protein (long isoform of human iPLA2 (LH-iPLA2)). Transcripts encoding both isoforms are also observed in human promonocytic U937 cells. Recombinant SH-iPLA2 and LH-iPLA2 are both catalytically active in the absence of Ca2+ and inhibited by a bromoenol lactone suicide substrate, but LH-iPLA2 is activated by ATP, whereas SH-iPLA2 is not. The human iPLA2 gene has been found to reside on chromosome 22 in region q13.1 and to contain 16 exons represented in the LH-iPLA2 transcript. Exon 8 is not represented in the SH-iPLA2 transcript, indicating that it arises by an exon-skipping mechanism of alternative splicing. The amino acid sequence encoded by exon 8 of the human iPLA2 gene is proline-rich and shares a consensus motif of PX5PX8HHPX12NX4Q with the proline-rich middle linker domains of the Smad proteins DAF-3 and Smad4. Expression of mRNA species encoding two active iPLA2 isoforms with distinguishable catalytic properties in two different types of human cells demonstrated here may have regulatory or functional implications about the roles of products of the iPLA2 gene in cell biologic processes.  (+info)

A Hirschsprung disease locus at 22q11? (8/1012)

We report a boy with truncus arteriosus, dysmorphic features, developmental delay, passing hypotonia, short segment Hirschsprung disease (HSCR), and paroxysmal hypoventilation. FISH analysis showed an interstitial deletion in chromosome band 22q11.2 coinciding with the deletions found in DiGeorge syndrome and velocardiofacial syndrome. Mutation scanning of RET, GDNF, EDNRB, and EDN3, genes associated with Hirschsprung disease, showed no aberrations. Since we know of two more patients with velocardiofacial syndrome and HSCR, we hypothesise that a gene responsible for proper development of the enteric nervous system may be included in the 22q11.2 region.  (+info)

Adding to the confusion about 22q11.2DS is its name. It also is known as DiGeorge syndrome, after the endocrinologist who first described four key features, and velocardiofacial syndrome, because of the heart/facial/oral/nasal cavity abnormalities. Other names for the condition that today are rarely used include Shprintzen syndrome, conotruncal anomaly face syndrome, Cayler craniofacial syndrome, congenital thymic aplasia and thymic hypoplasia. Today many professionals prefer the 22q11.2DS label, because it refers to the genetic lesion that occurs in most individuals given one of these diagnoses.. Those affected by 22q11.2DS have a significantly increased risk of developing schizophrenia. While most people with 22q11.2DS do not go on to develop the psychiatric disorder, schizophrenia does develop in approximately 25 to 30 percent of cases, but the reason is not well understood. It occurs in approximately 1 percent of the general population.. Children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome generally have ...
Well, backing up a bit, in 1968, William Strong, M.D., a physician from Cleveland, reported an association of cardiac abnormalities (right sided aortic arch), learning differences, and a characteristic facial appearance in four members of one family. In 1976, Dr. Kinouchi, a physician in Japan, reported a typical facial appearance specifically seen in patients with heart problems (conotruncal anomalies) and called it conotruncal anomaly face syndrome (CTAF). IN 1978, Robert Shprintzen, Ph.D., a speech pathologist from New York, described a disorder running in families where the patients had a combination of cleft palate or VPI (velopharyngeal-incompetence - the failure of the back of the palate and the throat to close the space connecting the mouth and the nose during normal speech, which causes the patient to sound like he or she has a cold), heart defects, learning disabilities, and a characteristic facial appearance. He called this condition velocardiofacial syndrome (velo means palate or ...

22q11.2 deletion syndrome (DiGeorge Syndrome, VCFS) is a condition caused by a missing section of chromosome 22 and can cause a wide range of health problems.
A brief introduction and overview of the prevalence and diagnosis of velocardiofacial syndrome. Includes when to seek genetic testing for velocardiofacial syndrome.
Velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS) and DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) are characterized by a wide spectrum of phenotypes, including conotruncal heart defects, cleft palate, and facial dysmorphology. Hemizygosity for a portion of chromosome 22q11 has been detected in 80-85% of VCFS/DGS patients. Both syndromes are thought to be the result of a developmental field defect. Using two independent gene-isolation procedures, we isolated a new catenin family member termed ARVCF (armadillo repeat gene deleted in VCFS) from the interval deleted in VCFS. ARVCF encodes a protein of 962 amino acids that contains a coiled coil domain and 10 tandem armadillo repeats. The primary structure of the protein is most closely related to the murine catenin p120CAS, which suggests a role for ARVCF in protein-protein interactions at adherens junctions. ARVCF is expressed ubiquitously in all fetal and adult tissues examined. This gene is hemizygous in all VCFS patients with interstitial deletions. Based on the physical location and

Children with VCF can have various other problems, including learning difficulties and frequent ear and sinus infections. They are also at an increased risk for scoliosis (curvature of the spine). The most likely time for scoliosis to occur is during a growth spurt, so it is important to have regular check-ups by the pediatrician while your child is growing. It is possible to prevent or reduce the problem of scoliosis by wearing a back brace or by surgery if it is caught in time. A minor feature of VCF concerns the fingers. The children with VCF often have fingers that are more slender, tapered and hyperextensible compared to other family members. A more serious complication is the risk for psychiatric problems. Whilst 10% of people with VCF have psychiatric problems, 90% will not. If these are going to occur, they tend to start during the teenage years. It is not possible to look at babies with VCF and say which will have scoliosis, learning problems or psychiatric problems. Other problems such ...

Nadia Zomorodian is one of the approximately 2,000-4,000 children born each year with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. Although it receives less public awareness, it is believed that 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is as common as Down syndrome.From Day One, Nadia was a fighter. She was born with a congenital heart defect, which required surgery when she was only one week old. Nadia was also born with a cleft palate, which made it difficult for her to breathe and swallow properly, and caused her to develop aspiration pneumonia a total of 12 times before she was even two years old. She was in and out of the hospital throughout her infant and toddler years, and at age three was finally given the diagnosis of Velocardiofacial Syndrome, now commonly known as 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome.. 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by a deleted or missing section of chromosome 22.

Polymicrogyria is a brain malformation due to abnormal cortical organization. Two histological types, unlayered or four-layered can be distinguished. Polymicrogyria is a rare manifestation of chromosome 22q11 deletion syndrome. We report two boys with chromosome 22q11 deletion syndrome and polymicrogyria, and describe the neuropathological features of the malformation in one of them. Clinical examinations, EEG, brain MRI, chromosomal analysis with FISH, and neuropathological studies of surgically resected cortical tissue were performed. Both patients showed severe developmental delay with cardiovascular malformations and one of them had drug resistant epilepsy. Polymicrogyria was found in the frontal, parietal, and temporal areas, unilaterally in one patient and bilaterally in the other. Histology revealed four-layered polymicrogyria. The pathogenesis of polymicrogyria in 22q11 deletion syndrome is discussed.
Validation study and pilot projects in several European countries demonstrated highest test accuracies for the detection of the 22q11 deletion syndrome. Konstanz, January 18, 2016 - PrenaTest®, Europes first NIPT, now also routinely tests for the DiGeorge syndrome, also known as 22q11 deletion syndrome. By adding this microdeletion as the most common genetic microdeletion syndrome occurring in about one out of 3,000 births, LifeCodexx now offers a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) with one of the largest test panels available today at highest accuracy.. For validation of the examination method data from synthetic pooled DNA samples as well as from several blood samples from pregnant women, whose unborn children had a 22q11.2 microdeletion, were examined. In all cases the microdeletion was correctly detected without any false-positive or false-negative results. Starting May 2016, the results of the validation study were confirmed during pilot projects in several European countries with the aim ...
Abstract: The COMT gene is thought to contribute to the cognitive/psychiatric phenotypes in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. We measured these manifestations against the Val/Met alleles of the COMT gene, in 40 nonpsychotic 22q11DS children. The Val allele was associated with poor IQ, processing speed, executive function and a higher frequency of anxiety disorders, underscoring the importance of the COMT gene in the childhood psychopathology in 22q11DS.. COMT and anxiety and cognition in children with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome ...
Most people with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome are missing about 30 to 40 genes. The exact function of many of these genes remains a mystery. But one gene, TBX1, probably accounts for the syndromes most common physical symptoms, including heart problems and cleft palate. Another nearby gene, called COMT, may also help explain the increased risk for behavior problems and mental illness in people with the syndrome.. About 90 percent of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome cases occur randomly at fertilization or early in fetal development. So most people affected with the disorder have no previous family history of it. However, they may pass the condition on to their children. The remaining 10 percent of cases are inherited from either the mother or the father. When the condition is inherited, other family members could also be affected. Because a person who has this chromosome deletion has a 50 percent chance of passing the deletion to a child, both parents are generally offered the opportunity to have their ...

Objective The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) is the most common microdeletion syndrome in humans. It is characterised by wide phenotypic variability, including congenital heart disease (CHD), immunodeficiency and scoliosis. However, little is known regarding the prevalence and characteristics of scoliosis in patients with 22q11.2DS. The objective of this study is to assess the prevalence of scoliosis, its characteristics and the association with CHD in patients with 22q11.2DS. ...
Mutation analysis of our cohort of non-deleted patients did not detect any cases with unambiguous loss of TBX1 function. Considering the strong experimental evidence for a major role of TBX1 in the 22q11 deletion syndrome from the deletion studies in the mouse,14-16 our findings are somewhat surprising. In contrast to our results, the majority of mutations inTBX5 in association with Holt-Oram syndrome are predicted to produce haploinsufficiency by nonsense or frameshift mutations within the T box region.12 13 23 Similarly, five of the 10 published mutations in TBX3, found in patients with ulnar-mammary syndrome, are predicted to disrupt the DNA binding domain.24 It is likely that the aetiology of non-deleted DGS/VCFS patients is heterogeneous. Malformations similar to those seen in the 22q11 deletion syndrome have been associated with prenatal exposure to retinoic acids and ethanol, maternal diabetes, and deletions of the short arm of chromosome 10. Therefore, it is possible that mutations ...
DiGeorge syndrome, or 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, is a genetic disorder that can display itself in a variety of ways. Its quite rare and children with the
Monosomy 1p36 Deletion Syndrome 1p36 deletion syndrome is a chromosome disorder. A chromosome disorder is a change in chromosome number or structure which results in a set of features or symptoms. People with 1p36 deletion syndrome have lost a small but variable amount of genetic material from one of their 46 chromosomes. 1p36 deletion syndrome was described for the first time in the late 1990s, although the first case of a child with a deletion of 1p36 was published in 1981. Most reports suggest that 1p36 deletions affect girls more often than boys - around 65 per cent of reported cases are girls. Unique families support this: 73 per cent of the children with 1p36 deletion syndrome are girls. The reasons for this are, as yet, not known.
DiGeorge Syndrome is a primary immunodeficiency disease caused by abnormal migration and development of certain cells and tissues during fetal development. As part of the developmental defect, the thymus gland may be affected and T-lymphocyte production may be impaired, resulting in low T-lymphocyte numbers and frequent infections.
Medical definition of DiGeorge syndrome: a rare congenital disease that is characterized especially by absent or underdeveloped thymus and parathyroid glands, heart defects, immunodeficiency, hypocalcemia, and characteristic facial features (as wide-set eyes, small jaws, and low-set ears) and is typically caused by a deletion on the chromosome numbered 22.

DiGeorge syndrome is caused by a problem called 22q11 deletion. This is where a small piece of genetic material is missing from a persons DNA.. In about 9 in 10 (90%) cases, the bit of DNA was missing from the egg or sperm that led to the pregnancy. This can happen by chance when sperm and eggs are made. It isnt a result of anything you did before or during the pregnancy.. In these cases, theres usually no family history of DiGeorge syndrome and the risk of it happening again to other children is very small.. In around 1 in 10 (10%) cases, the 22q11 deletion is passed on to a child by a parent who has DiGeorge syndrome, although they may not realise they have it if its mild.. ...

In the present study, we further analyzed flanking genes of 3p25 syntenic members identified in the Torafugu genomic database and determined their expression with cDNA isolated from ovary and liver. CECR5 was found in the upstream of RAF1 and CECR6 downstream of MKRN1 in Torafugu genomic scaffolds. In addition, the last exon of IL17R was located downstream of CECR6 on the opposite strand, in the same configuration as seen in human chromosome 22q11, with a high degree of conservation in sequence similarity and exon/intron structures. These results supported that the major part of the long arm of human chromosome 22 (q11 to q13), with a collinear order of IL17R, CECR6, and CECR5 (22q11) and SYN3 (22q12) and PPARA (22q13), is homologous to the ancestral 3p25 synteny containing a similar paralogous set of reference genes (SYN, PPAR, MKRN, RAF, CECR5, CECR6, and IL17R). It is also noted that CECR5, CECR6, and IL17R were likely to be functional in fish because their cDNAs were obtained from liver or ...

What causes DiGeorge syndrome? As mentioned, 90 percent of patients with the features of this syndrome are missing a small part of their chromosome 22 at the q11 region. This region encompasses about 30 individual genes and results in developmental defects in specific structures throughout the body. It is not known why this region of chromosome 22 is prone to become deleted, but this is one of the most frequent chromosome defects in newborns. Deletion 22q11.2 is estimated to occur in one in 3,000 to 4,000 live births. Most of the 22q11.2 deletion cases are new occurrences or sporadic (occurs by chance). However, in about 10 percent of families, the deletion is inherited and other family members are affected or at risk for passing this deletion to their children. The gene is autosomal dominant, therefore, any person who has this deletion has a 50 percent chance of passing the deletion to a child. For this reason, whenever a deletion is diagnosed, both parents are offered the opportunity to have ...
