Extremely low values of serum leptin in children with congenital generalized lipoatrophy. (1/1305)

Congenital generalized lipoatrophy (CGL) is a syndrome with multiple clinical manifestations and complete atrophy of adipose tissue. The exact mechanism of this disease remains unknown. One hypothesis presupposes an abnormal development of adipocytes. Leptin, the adipocyte-specific product of the ob gene, acts as a regulatory factor of body weight. In children, as in adults, leptin levels are correlated with body mass index (BMI) and body fat mass. Some authors have demonstrated that adults with congenital or acquired generalized lipoatrophy have decreased leptin concentrations. In order to study serum leptin profile during childhood in this disease, we measured serum leptin concentrations in six children aged 5.5-11 years suffering from CGL, and investigated the relationship between metabolic parameters and the variations in leptin levels. Serum leptin concentrations (1.19+/-0.32 ng/ml (+/- S.D.)) were extremely low compared with those observed in normal children. No significant correlation was found with BMI, which is known to be one of the major determinants of serum leptin. Serum leptin values were significantly correlated with fasting insulin levels (r=0.83, P=0.024). In conclusion, extremely low leptin values measured in children with CGL could be regarded as one among other diagnostic parameters. However, the detectable levels observed in all of these children support the evidence that a small amount of body fat is likely to be present in these patients, despite complete subcutaneous lipoatrophy. Our data suggest that this small amount of adipose tissue could be metabolically active and, at least in part, sensitive to insulin. Further investigations are required to uncover the pathophysiological mechanisms of this syndrome, known to be commonly associated with insulin resistance.  (+info)

p53 and p16INK4A mutations during the progression of glomus tumor. (2/1305)

Glomus tumors are significantly rare tumors of carotid body. The great majority of these tumors are benign in character. Here we present two brothers with hereditary glomus jugulare tumor who had consanguineous parents. Radiotherapy was applied approximately 8 and 10 years ago for treatment in both cases. Eight years later, one of these cases came to our notice due to relapse. The mutation pattern of p53, p57KIP2, p16INK4A and p15NK4B genes which have roles in the cell cycle, was analyzed in tumor samples obtained from the two affected cases in the initial phase and from one of these cases at relapse. The DNA sample obtained from the case in initial diagnosis phase revealed no p53, p57KIP2, p16INK4A or p15INK4B mutation. He is still in remission phase. Despite the lack of p53, p57KIP2, p16INK4A and p15INK4B mutation at initial diagnosis the tumor DNA of the other case in relapse revealed p53 codon 243 (ATG-->ATC; met-->ile) and p16 codon 97 (GAC-->AAC; asp-->asn) missense point mutations. No loss of heterozygosity in p53 and p16INK4A was observed by microsatellite analysis of tumoral tissues in these cases. P53 and p16INK4A mutations observed in relapse phase were in conserved regions of both genes. No previous reports have been published with these mutations in glomus tumor during progression. The mutation observed in this case may due to radiotherapy. In spite of this possibility, the missense point mutations in conserved region of p53 and p16INK4A genes may indicate the role of p53 and p16INK4A in tumor progression of glomus tumors.  (+info)

The Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome. (3/1305)

Two new cases of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome are described; they belong to the fourth family from Lebanon in which this disease has been recognized. There is no genealogical linkage between these four families. A particular feature in these cases is a striking rhizomelic shortness of the arms especially in one case. Clinical and radiological findings, progression of the skeletal changes are studied, along with the review of the cases in the literature. Cytological and biochemical data indicate that the DMC syndrome is not a mucopolysaccharidosis.  (+info)

A susceptibility locus for epidermodysplasia verruciformis, an abnormal predisposition to infection with the oncogenic human papillomavirus type 5, maps to chromosome 17qter in a region containing a psoriasis locus. (4/1305)

Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is a rare genodermatosis characterized by an abnormal susceptibility to infection with a specific group of related human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes, including the oncogenic HPV5 associated with the skin carcinomas developing in about half of EV patients. EV is usually considered as an autosomal recessive condition. Taking EV as a model to identify a locus underlying the susceptibility to HPV infections, we performed a genome-wide search for linkage with 255 microsatellite genetic markers in three consanguineous EV families comprising six patients, using the homozygosity mapping approach. Homozygosity restricted to affected individuals was observed for a marker of chromosome 17q (D17S784) in two families and a marker about 17 centiMorgan (cM) distal (D17S1807) in the third family. Ten additional microsatellite markers spanning 29 cM in this region were analyzed. Two-point lod score values greater than 3 were obtained for four markers and multipoint linkage analysis yielded a maximum lod score of 10.17 between markers D17S939 and D17S802. Recombination events observed in two families allowed a candidate region for the EV susceptibility locus to be mapped to the 1 cM region defined by these two markers. The EV locus (named EV1) is included in the 17qter region recently found to contain a dominant locus for the susceptibility to familial psoriasis. It has been shown that patients suffering from psoriasis are likely to constitute the reservoir of HPV5. It is thus tempting to speculate that distinct defects affecting the same gene may be involved in the two skin conditions.  (+info)

Generalised uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase deficiency. (5/1305)

The generalised form of epimerase deficiency galactosaemia has been described in only two children from unrelated families. Their progress is reported and three other affected children from these families are described. The initial presentation was similar to classic galactosaemia. Despite treatment all have shown poor growth and moderate learning difficulties. Three have sensorineural deafness and four have pronounced dysmorphic features. The two older female patients have normal pubertal development.  (+info)

Molecular analysis of the ERGIC-53 gene in 35 families with combined factor V-factor VIII deficiency. (6/1305)

Combined factor V-factor VIII deficiency (F5F8D) is a rare, autosomal recessive coagulation disorder in which the levels of both coagulation factors V and VIII are diminished. The F5F8D locus was previously mapped to a 1-cM interval on chromosome 18q21. Mutations in a candidate gene in this region, ERGIC-53, were recently found to be associated with the coagulation defect in nine Jewish families. We performed single-strand conformation and sequence analysis of the ERGIC-53 gene in 35 F5F8D families of different ethnic origins. We identified 13 distinct mutations accounting for 52 of 70 mutant alleles. These were 3 splice site mutations, 6 insertions and deletions resulting in translational frameshifts, 3 nonsense codons, and elimination of the translation initiation codon. These mutations are predicted to result in synthesis of either a truncated protein product or no protein at all. This study revealed that F5F8D shows extensive allelic heterogeneity and all ERGIC-53 mutations resulting in F5F8D are "null." Approximately 26% of the mutations have not been identified, suggesting that lesions in regulatory elements or severe abnormalities within the introns may be responsible for the disease in these individuals. In two such families, ERGIC-53 protein was detectable at normal levels in patients' lymphocytes, raising the further possibility of defects at other genetic loci.  (+info)

The orthopaedic aspects of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. (7/1305)

Five cases of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED) were treated from 1985-1996 at the Orthopaedics and Trauma Department of SSK Izmir Educational Hospital. Four patients were female and one was male. The pedigrees of the first two female patients had the same features of inter-related marriages. The patients have been followed up for 5.5-11 years (average of 7.5 years). Surgical operations were mostly required in the lower limbs. Problems in the hips required adductor myotomy, the Soutter procedure, total hip replacement, and pertrochanteric extension osteotomy. Management of the knees required supracondylar shortening and extension osteotomy of the femur, high tibial extension osteotomy, debridement of the knee joint with removal of osteophytes, ogleotomy of the patellar lengthening of the knee flexors and posterior capsulotomy. Interphalangeal arthrodesis for hammer toes, extension osteotomy of the head of the first metatarsals, and Kellers operation were carried out in the foot. In the upper limb decompression and anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve, debridement of the elbow joint, extension and valgus osteotomy of the distal radius, and extension osteotomy of the head of the first metacarpal were required.  (+info)

Infantile cystinosis in France: genetics, incidence, geographic distribution. (8/1305)

A national distribution of 66 French patients, from 49 sibships, has been studied. Segregation analysis, using the maximum likelihood method, was found to agree with the theoretical values expected in recessive autosomal inheritance. The birthplaces of these patients show an unequal geographic distribution of cystinosis, the incidence being higher in Western France. Compared with the total number of live births during the period 1959 to 1972, the minimum incidence of the condition in the province of Brittany is 1 per 25 909, and the gene frequency 0.0062. In the rest of France, the minimum incidence is 1 per 326,440 and the gene frequency 0.0018. Application of Dahlberg's formula gives a similar result. The mean inbreeding coefficient is 530 X 10(-5), a figure 23 times higher than the mean coefficient of France. An indirect test of inbreeding, the distance between parental birthplaces, was studied, first using the French administrative boundaries, second by using kilometers. This distance was constantly smaller for the parents of patients than for the parents of controls. Analysis of two erythrocyte polymorphisms (ABO and Rh) showed a large excess of group A patients when compared with overall French data. These findings are difficult to interpret on genetic grounds. The genetic reasons for the unequal geographic distribution of cystinosis in France are discussed.  (+info)

Periodontitis is defined as an inflammatory disease of supporting tissues of teeth characterized by progressive destruction of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. Periodontal manifestations of these genetic disorders or syndromes, such as familial and cyclic neutropenias, granulomatous disease, agranulocytosis, Langerhans cell disease, glycogen storage disease, hypophosphatasia, leucocyte adhesion deficiency, and Papillon‐Lefèvre, Chédiak‐Higashi, Cohen, Ehlers‐Danlos, Marfan, Down, Haim‐Munk, and Kindlers syndromes, imitate some types of periodontal diseases. Most of these syndromes have autosomal‐recessive characterization and can be seen commonly in consanguineous marriages. Therefore, consanguineous marriages have generally been accepted as having important detrimental effects on offspring. There is a lot of genetic research about consanguineous marriage and its detrimental effects on offspring. Although consanguineous marriages are common in the world, the relationship with
The basic issue here is that the Spanish Habsburgs tried to keep power by literally "keeping it in the family". During the last three-quarters of their time, from 1551 to 1700, no outsider married into the Spanish royal family. Indeed, if one looks at the six kings from 1497 (when Philip the Fair married Joanna I of Castile and Aragon, and thus became Philip I), then we note that there were 11 marriages, most of which were among blood relatives - two uncle-niece marriages, one double first cousin marriage, one first cousin marriage, two first cousins once removed marriages, one second cousin marriage, and two third cousin marriages. (See Wikipedia for an explanation of these relationship terms.) This gave Charles II an inbreeding coefficient of 0.254 (calculated by Alvarez et al. 2009) - for comparison, the offspring of a brother-sister union would have a value of 0.250, as would the offspring of a parent-child union. Phillip III (Charles IIs grandfather) also reached a high level: 0.218. Both ...

Along with consanguinity, assortative mating is an important characteristic of a population that can have a profound influence on the incidence of deafness. When a new recessive mutation first arises, there is a substantial risk that it will be lost by stochastic processes. Consanguinity helps ensure that at least some recessive mutations are expressed phenotypically where they can be exposed to positive or negative selection. Only after genes for deafness are expressed can assortative mating accelerate their increase in response to relaxed selection. Consanguinity, of course, affects all recessive genes indiscriminately, but the effect of assortative mating among the deaf is limited to genes for deafness, in which it preferentially increases the frequency of the commonest form of recessive deafness in a population.3 Acting together, these genetic mechanisms can thus promote the survival, expression, and spread of genes for deafness. The acquisition of either a traditional or an indigenous sign ...

Malnutrition is currently a major problem around the world, especially in children aged less than 5 years. Lack of food and nutrients is not always the cause of malnutrition. Other important factors associated with malnutrition include insufficient knowledge of the mother, quality of childhood care, cultural and economic factors, childhood diseases, poverty, pollution, and an unhealthy environment (11). Childrens poor growth is one of the most important global health problems, especially in developing countries. Paying attention to this problem could result in colossal economic and social benefits and help promote the communitys health to a large extent (12).. Findings of this study showed that education level of the mother, mothers BMI before pregnancy, parental consanguinity, and feeding schedule were factors associated with FTT among children aged 3 to 72 months in Jahrom..

Man is a social animal; therefore, he is dependent upon others for his social needs. The presence of viable social institutions is mandatory to groom the people into reasonable citizens having a balanced approach. In the contemporary world, fate of economic, religious, political and family institutions is ubiquitously in the doldrums. Therefore, the number of enlightened smut-hounds and moderate cool cats is continuously dwindling. The degraded social institutions indoctrinate erratic emotions that dominate personality of a wooly back and hothead pussyfooter.

The first family was discovered in a small village near Iskenderun, and families were later found in Adana and two other small villages near Gaziantep and Canakkale. In all the affected individuals dynamic balance was impaired during upright walking,and they habitually preferred walking on all four extremities. MRI scans showed inferior cerebellovermian hypoplasia with slightly simplified cerebral gyri in three of the families, but appeared normal in the fourth. PET scans showed a decreased glucose metabolic activity in the cerebellum, vermis and, to a lesser extent the cerebral cortex, except for one patient, whose MRI scan also appeared to be normal. All four families had consanguineous marriages in their pedigrees, suggesting autosomal recessive transmission. The syndrome ...

It was when I trawling through genealogy websites to see if I could get more information about my grandfathers family, who were small farmers in a townland called Derryronane in County Mayo, that the greatest surprise was uncovered. By this stage I knew hed fought in the Great War - my uncle Liam had given me the one artefact linking my grandfather to the British Army: his soldiers pay-book and wallet. But it wasnt until I visited the genealogy website, and came across a posting from a complete stranger who was also seeking information about the Derryronane McCanns, that I got the visual evidence. The stranger turned out to be my second cousin - a direct descendant of my grandfathers brother, John - and after we had exchanged emails he offered to send me various family photos.. When the email arrived with the PDF attachment, I casually scrolled through the old black and white photos of people who were vaguely familiar and others who were completely new to me. Then I came across one that ...

The Middle Ages was not strong on membership of communities. They were not obsessive about inside versus outside. They didnt emphasize, "Im a denizen of this town, Im a citizen of this country, I belong in this nation, behind these frontiers." They saw themselves rather like Hobbits (Tolkien was a medievalist). Hobbits knew their relatives to the seventh degree: second cousins three times removed, and so on. In the Middle Ages people saw themselves as part of a network of connections. They knew their family trees. They knew with whom they were related. They identified themselves as a node in a network and they saw pathways, connections to other people in their extended family. They also saw themselves in terms depending on their profession. If they were in the Church, they saw themselves in the Church hierarchy as being a priest here, subject to the archdeacon here, subject to the bishop there, and the archbishop and the pope.

As the NFL world continues to ask why the Redskins drafted quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round after drafting quarterback Robert Griffin III second overall, Redskins quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur says the answer to that question is simple: Cousins is just too good a player to pass up.

Dear Amy: Every fall, my sister, cousins and a cousins sister-in-law have a weekend shopping excursion in our home city.. We stay in a hotel, treat ourselves, shop for our children and go out for meals. It is a great time to reconnect.. I have a sister "Wendy," whom we do not invite. She is offended to the point of tears when she finds we have not invited her. My two sisters and I are very close in age, but Wendy hasnt been as close to this set of cousins as my sister and I have been through the years.. We are all married stay-at-home moms. Wendy is a divorced, working mom with one young child.. There are several reasons we do not include her. We know she doesnt have very much money for such an outing. She also does not have many of the same interests as we do. Her life is quite different from ours. Were not interested in what she has to talk about. She complains too much about her aches and pains, and claims to have some kind of neurological disease that some of us feel is more ...

Introduction: Consanguineous marriage is associated with increased risks for congenital anomalies, low birthweight, and other adverse perinatal outcomes. In this population-based, case-control study we investigated the association between consanguineous marriage (first-cousin marriage) and stillbirth risk, using prospectively collected information from prepregnancy visits.. Material and methods: From 2007 to 2009, we identified 283 stillbirths (cases) and 2088 randomly selected live control births through prepregnancy visits in rural Golestan, Iran. The associations between consanguinity and prepregnancy maternal characteristics and stillbirth risk were examined using multivariate logistic regression.. Results: The rate of consanguineous marriage was 19.4% among cases and 13.6% among controls. Consanguinity was associated with increased stillbirth risk [ odds ratio (OR) 1.53; 95% CI 1.10-2.14]. The association was significantly increased for preterm stillbirth (, 37 gestational weeks) (OR 2.43; ...
Consanguineous marriage is matrimony between individuals who are closely related. Though it may involve incest, it implies more than the sexual nature of incest. In a clinical sense, marriage between two family members who are second cousins or closer qualify as having a consanguineous marriage. This is based on the gene copies their offspring may receive. Though these unions are still prevalent in some communities, as seen across the Greater Middle East region, many other populations have seen a great decline in family marriages. Globally, 8.5% of children have consanguineous parents, and 20% of the human population live in communities practicing endogamy. Theories on the developments of consanguineous marriage as a taboo can be supported as being both a social, and a biological development. In a social perspective, the observed inclination to practice consanguinity has been due to advantages to social and financial status. Upholding familial structure and assets, and ease of marital ...
We have reanalysed genome scan data for three important infectious diseases: tuberculosis (TB) in The Gambia (Bellamy et al. 2000); leprosy in India (Siddiqui et al. 2001); and persistent hepatitis B infection both in The Gambia and Italy (Frodsham 2000; Frodsham et al. 2006); these populations differing in their rates of cousin marriages from less than 1 per cent in Italy up to 43 per cent in India. All four studies were based on an affected sib-pair design, with unaffected parents acting as controls for two or more affected offspring. Sample sizes for these studies are as follows: TB in The Gambia comprising 272 autosomal markers genotyped across 263 individuals in 74 families containing 155 affected offspring, 25 affected parents, 19 unaffected offspring and 64 affected parents; hepatitis in Gambia comprising 276 autosomal markers genotyped across 280 individuals in 62 families containing 152 affected offspring, 22 affected parents, 42 unaffected offspring and 64 unaffected parents; leprosy ...

Dear Sandra This is a slightly tricky question, but I hope you will be able to follow my argument. Im not exactly sure I know what you mean by double first cousins. I think you mean that A and B are sibs, and C and D are sibs from an unrelated family, and A has offspring with C while B has offspring with D. Sibs, as I am sure you know, are related by 0.5. That is, there is a 0.5 probability of a particular gene being present (by descent) in two sibs that share the same mother and father. If E and F are double first cousins, the first thing to state is that they cannot be inbred. That is, they do not share any copies of the same gene (more correctly the same allele) that are identical by descent. That means we can use the same approach to relatedness as we do in the case of sibs. Take a random gene in E, and ask what is the probability that F has a copy of it? The answer is that it came from one parent (doesnt matter which). There is thus half a chance that it is also in that parents sib, and ...
The human genome is characterised by many runs of homozygous genotypes, where identical haplotypes were inherited from each parent. The length of each run is determined partly by the number of generations since the common ancestor: offspring of cousin marriages have long runs of homozygosity (ROH), while the numerous shorter tracts relate to shared ancestry tens and hundreds of generations ago. Human populations have experienced a wide range of demographic histories and hold diverse cultural attitudes to consanguinity. In a global population dataset, genome-wide analysis of long and shorter ROH allows categorisation of the mainly indigenous populations sampled here into four major groups in which the majority of the population are inferred to have: (a) recent parental relatedness (south and west Asians); (b) shared parental ancestry arising hundreds to thousands of years ago through long term isolation and restricted effective population size (Ne), but little recent inbreeding (Oceanians); (c) ...

This is a large, consanguineous Iranian kindred with five individuals, three male and two female, aged 3-37 years across four branches, affected by unexplained autosomal recessive developmental delay (DD), ID, and epilepsy. Similar to family A, speech is more severely affected than motor development in the affected members of the family. All the patients were born after normal pregnancies from healthy parents who are related. Karyotype analysis by G-banding and tandem mass spectrometry screening for metabolic disorders as well as Fragile X screening were performed for all affected individuals and they were normal. Results of brain computed tomography (CT) scans taken for all the patients were unremarkable. The results of routine laboratory testing and CK level was within normal range. Physical examination, dysmorphology examination, and neurological assessment did not find anything unusual except for cognition deficiency and history of seizure. The patients did not have any neurological ...
The GROW Research Laboratory aims to bring Gene Therapy to the bedside in India. There are currently no vector generation core facilities even for research uses. Congenital and hereditary genetic diseases are becoming a significant health burden in India, and hence there is a need for adequate and effective genetic testing and counselling services. In Indias urban areas, congenital malformations and genetic disorders are the third most common cause of mortality in newborns. Factors contributing to this high prevalence include consanguineous marriages, high birth rate, improved diagnostic facilities and a lack of expertise in genetic counselling. We are establishing a vector core facility for generating AAV (adeno-associated vector), Adenovirus, Lentivirus and Retrovirus. In future we will further this core into a cGMP facility to generate clinical grade vectors for patient trials.. ...

Genetic and metabolic disorders are individually rare but collectively constitute a major problem in our communities where the consanguineous marriages are common and the number of patients who are affected in each family is high. Our clinic is dealing with many different diseases related to genetic or metabolic alterations. The diagnosis is based on detailed clinical history, physical examination by experienced team and the diagnosis is confirmed by performing important laboratory tests including urine test for organic acids, plasma test for amino acid, filter paper test for Acylcarnitine profile, enzyme assays, molecular DNA testing, and other specific tests e.g. for Tyrosinemia and Oxalosis. The clinic is an independent facility, as patients can visit directly or in collaboration with King Abdullah University Hospital (KAUH) and Royal Medical Services (RMS). Our clinic has been running for over 7 years, and administrated by a consultant physician in pediatric, genetic and metabolic diseases. ...

will show a smaller number of matching cMs and larger number of segments due to their algorithm which removes population specific segments.. The DNA adoption site has a relationship calculator that can help figure out closer relationships discussed in the article at Robertas blog called Demystifying Ancestrys Relationship Predictions Inspires New Relationship Estimator Tool.. Autosomal DNA matching is not cut and dried due to the randomness of DNA inheritance and is even more confusing if you are from an endogamous population because your parents will likely share some DNA due to ancestral cousin marriages. Thus a match could be related on both sides! There is a function on the GEDmatch site that lets you check if the parents of a specific kit are related because they have passed along matching DNA segments.. I have sometimes found that someone predicted to be a 3rd/4th cousin based on total cMs is much more distant. This has happened when there are two good sized matching segments but each ...
The difference between N and N2 determines how a person is related, and corresponds to the relationship chart at the beginning of this article. For example, if N-N2 is zero, where someone and a relative share a common parent or grandparent or great grandparent, etc, then that has to do with the line going across the middle part of the chart (Myself, Brother/Sister, First Cousin, Second Cousin, etc). Part of what makes the query lengthy is using the Gender column to determine gender-specific relations, like Mother/Father, Brother/Sister, Uncle/Aunt, Nephew/Niece, etc ...
The past month on the family compound, on the banks of La Mer Gasnerre has been an anthropologists dream vacation. First came my family, in all their tall, blond glory, who have two generations of lasting relationships with my former in-laws. Then came my ex-family, in all their dark and shining splendour, to pay obesience to the matriarch and patriarch (age 97) of their family. Then came the children of my former husband, the eldest 39 with children of his own the same age as my exs youngest: 5. The grandkids call him "Ampa Ougie"; their uncle is a playmate. Needless to say, we all tried to learn the iterations of kinship. I once more learned the difference between a second cousin and a first cousin once removed, which I will have forgotten by tomorrow, and rediscovered the pleasures and perils of living in an extremely complex clan ...
Vascular elasticity is crucial for maintaining hemodynamics. Molecular mechanisms involved in human elastogenesis are incompletely understood. We describe a syndrome of lethal arteriopathy associated with a novel,identical mutation in the fibulin 4 gene (FBLN4) in a unique cohort of infants from South India. Clinical characteristics, cardiovascular findings, outcomes and molecular genetics of twenty-two infants from a distinct population subgroup,presenting with characteristic arterial dilatation and tortuosity during the period August 2004 to June 2011 were studied. Patients (11 males, 11 females) presented at median age of 1.5 months,belonging to unrelated families from identical ethno-geographical background; eight had a history of consanguinity. Cardiovascular features included aneurysmal dilatation, elongation, tortuosity and narrowing of the aorta, pulmonary artery and their branches. The phenotype included a variable combination of cutis laxa (52%), long philtrum-thin vermillion (90%),

In the end, I guess the emotional impact of witnessing the childs background, her innocence and misfortune in theatre are hard to describe in words. I certainly matured a great deal during that short space of time; thanking God for the small blessings that we have in life. Fresh perspective from my parents helped me to feel better: at least this child lives in a country where liver transplantation is a real option, which is free of charge. Had she lived in Pakistan, such an operation may not have been available, or perhaps would have been too expensive. Whilst her situation is sad and indeed to be pitied, at least here in this country, she has a real chance at life. The factors leading up to her current condition are complex: it is not simply a two-dimensional "blame the parents" phenomenon. The concept of consanguinity is one that is deeply ingrained in that part of the world, and it will take many generations to eradicate this. From the notes, I gathered that her teachers at school were very ...
Abstract: Nucleotide sequence differences on the whole-genome scale have been computed for 1092 people from 14 populations publicly available by the 1000 Genomes Project. Total number of differences in genetic variants between 96,464 human pairs has been calculated. The distributions of these differences for individuals within European, Asian or African origin were characterized by narrow unimodal peaks with mean values of 3.8, 3.5, and 5.1 million respectively and standard deviations of 0.1-0.03 million. The total numbers of genomic differences between pairs of all known relatives were found to be significantly lower than their respective population means and in reverse proportion to the distance of their consanguinity. By counting the total number of genomic differences it is possible to infer familial relations for people that share down to 6% of common loci identical-by-descent. Detection of familial relations can be radically improved when only very rare genetic variants are taken into ...

Homozygosity has long been associated with rare, often devastating, Mendelian disorders, and Darwin was one of the first to recognize that inbreeding reduces evolutionary fitness. However, the effect of the more distant parental relatedness that is common in modern human populations is less well understood. Genomic data now allow us to investigate the effects of homozygosity on traits of public health importance by observing contiguous homozygous segments (runs of homozygosity), which are inferred to be homozygous along their complete length. Given the low levels of genome-wide homozygosity prevalent in most human populations, information is required on very large numbers of people to provide sufficient power. Here we use runs of homozygosity to study 16 health-related quantitative traits in 354,224 individuals from 102 cohorts, and find statistically significant associations between summed runs of homozygosity and four complex traits: height, forced expiratory lung volume in one second, general ...

Marino and Noah have similar energy levels (crazy) and they had a blast together. Marino really likes being the "big" cousin. I was surprised, but Marino was very interested in Baby Zoey. When she was sad, he sang her lullabies and even made up a song about her where she was a "super girl" and one day she will be as cool as Marino. Hes something else.

Results The results of exclusion analyses suggested that family PKRP173 was linked to chromosome 2q harbouring mer tyrosine kinase protooncogene (MERTK), a gene previously associated with autosomal recessive RP. Additional STR markers refined the critical interval and placed it in a 13.4 cM (17 Mb) region flanked by D2S293 proximally and D2S347 distally. Significant logarithm of odds (LOD) scores of 3.2, 3.25 and 3.18 at θ=0 were obtained with markers D2S1896, D2S2269 and D2S160. Sequencing of the coding exons of MERTK identified a mutation, c.718G→T in exon 4, which results in a premature termination of p.E240X that segregates with the disease phenotype in the family. ...
Background: Mutations in GJB2 are the most common molecular defects responsible for autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (NSHI). The mutation spectra of this gene vary among different ethnic groups. Methods: In order to understand the spectrum and frequency of GJB2 mutations in the Chinese population, the coding region of the GJB2 gene from 2063 unrelated patients with NSHI was PCR amplified and sequenced. Results: A total of 23 pathogenic mutations were identified. Among them, five (p.W3X, c.99delT, c.155_c.158delTCTG, c.512_c.513insAACG, and p.Y152X) are novel. Three hundred and seven patients carry two confirmed pathogenic mutations, including 178 homozygotes and 129 compound heterozygotes. One hundred twenty five patients carry only one mutant allele. Thus, GJB2 mutations account for 17.9% of the mutant alleles in 2063 NSHI patients. Overall, 92.6% (684/739) of the pathogenic mutations are frame-shift truncation or nonsense mutations. The four prevalent mutations; c.235delC, ...

[online]. 2008, vol.38, n.2, pp.119-125. ISSN 2221-4062.. The effect of inbreeding on the 305-d yields of milk, fat and protein, and the percentages of fat and protein in the first three lactations was estimated using records on the South African Jersey cows that participated in the National Dairy Animal Improvement Scheme. Inbreeding coefficients were estimated using the entire pedigree records of the Jersey breed and ranged from 0 to 42%. Data were analyzed using a repeatability animal model. The statistical model included the fixed effects of herd-year-season, age of the cow at calving, calving interval, inbreeding as a discrete or continuous variable and random effects of direct additive genetic, permanent environment of the cow and the residual effects. The multitrait derivative-free REML algorithm was used ...
Hydrolethalus syndrome (less commonly referred to as Salonen-Herva-Norio syndrome) is a rare genetic disorder that causes improper fetal development, resulting in birth defects and often stillbirth. It is associated with HYLS1 mutations. Hydrolethalus syndrome can cause heart and brain defects, a cleft lip or palate, an abnormally shaped nose or jaw, or incomplete lung development. These defects are typically serious enough to cause stillbirth or death within a few days of birth. Hydrolethalus can be readily diagnosed during pregnancy through the use of ultrasound, which will often reveal hydrocephaly and an abnormal structure of the brain. No cure or treatment option for individuals with Hydrolethalus syndrome currently exist. E-Notes: Hydrolethalus Syndrome "Orphanet: Hydrolethalus". 2017-09-10. Retrieved 2017-09-10 ...

Pinpointing genes involved in non-right-handedness has the potential to clarify developmental contributions to human brain lateralization. Major-gene models have been considered for human handedness which allow for phenocopy and reduced penetrance, i.e. an imperfect correspondence between genotype and phenotype. However, a recent genome-wide association scan did not detect any common polymorphisms with substantial genetic effects. Previous linkage studies in families have also not yielded significant findings. Genetic heterogeneity and/or polygenicity are therefore indicated, but it remains possible that relatively rare, or even unique, major-genetic effects may be detectable in certain extended families with many non-right-handed members. Here we applied whole exome sequencing to 17 members from a single, large consanguineous family from Pakistan. Multipoint linkage analysis across all autosomes did not yield clear candidate genomic regions for involvement in the trait and single-point analysis ...
Parkinsons disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra and the presence of cytoplasmic protein inclusions known as Lewy bodies. The majority of PD cases are sporadic; however, the identification of a number of genes responsible for rare familial forms of PD has provided important insights into the underlying mechanisms of the disease. These genes, encoding α-synuclein, parkin, UCH-L1, and DJ-1, have implicated protein misfolding, impairment of the ubiquitin-proteasome system, and oxidative stress in the pathogenesis of the disease (1, 2).. We previously mapped PARK6, a locus linked to autosomal recessive, early-onset PD, to a 12.5-centimorgan (cM) region on chromosome 1p35-p36 by autozygosity mapping in a large consanguineous family from Sicily (3). Subsequent identification of two additional consanguineous families [one from central Italy (family IT-GR) (4) and one from Spain] provided additional ...
We report a new association in our two cases. Such concurrence of early keratoconus and the syndrome raises the possibility of a genetic linkage, although a chance association cannot be excluded.. On one hand, either chromosomal rearrangements such as chromosome 7, 11 translocation or genetically determined syndromes such as this syndrome should be considered in cases where keratoconus is present during childhood.6 That may explain the early presentation of keratoconus in our cases. An additional factor is that keratoconus tends to be more prevalent and diagnosed at a younger age in Asians than in white people.3. On the other hand, familial keratoconus in our cases cannot be excluded because of the presence of keratoconus in a single relative and parental consanguinity. Positive family history has been reported in 6% to 10% of keratoconus cases and is suggested to be caused by autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance.1,2,3. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report ...
Its time to confront this taboo: First cousin marriages in Muslim communities are putting hundreds of children at risk.(DailyMail).The man wept as he told how his beautiful, dark-eyed child died in a hospital cot with medical tubes snaking from his frail body as nurses fought unsuccessfully to save him. Sick with pneumonia, the two-year-old gave up the battle for life.A rare tragedy, you might think, in modern Britain, with all the advances of medical science. But in the terraced streets of Bradford, Yorkshire, a childs death is anything but rare. At the boys inquest, coroner Mark Hinchliffe said Hamza Rehman had died because his Pakistan-born parents (shopkeeper Abdul and housewife Rozina) are first cousins. Four years before, Hamzas older sister, three-month-old Khadeja, had died of the same brain disorder which causes fits, sickness and chest infections. The couple had another baby born with equally devastating neurological problems. A heartbroken Mr Rehman told the inquest that he and ...
The effect of inbreeding on egg to adult viability was determined for Drosophila virilis over a wide range of inbreeding levels (0 , F ,.734). The quantity -loge (Viability) was found to be a curvilinear function of F, indicating synergistic interaction among loci. The curvature was not evident, however, below F =.500. The values of A and B (Morton et al. 1956) were calculated to be.06 and.77-.86, respectively. This extremely small value of A yielded a very large value for the B/A ratio i.e., 12.51-14.99.. ...
The usual period of mourning for a first cousin is six weeks (three in mourning and three in half-mourning), but mourning for a second cousin would be for three weeks, for a nephew or niece it would be for three months. But the mourning for these relatives does not - after the funeral has taken place - necessitate persons secluding themselves from society, and they therefore get out as usual. A period of mourning for an aunt or uncle would be of three months duration, but in this case a fortnight at least would elapse before going out would be resumed; for great aunts or uncles two months is the usual period of mourning; for second cousins and distant connections three weeks mourning is usual; for brothers or sisters six months is the prescribed period for mourning, during the first two months of which the mourners are not expected to enter into society. The mourning for a grandfather or grandmother would be nine months, and the seclusion from society would average two months. The mourning ...
This research has been carried out to study the UAE population structure, particularly as the UAE has an unusual population composition. Transient workers from Indian sub-continental outnumber the native Arabic population by approximately three (60%) to one (20%). Other Arab populations make up approximately 15% of the population, the majority are from Egypt, Yemen, Palestine and Sudan. The relatively high levels of consanguineous marriages (between close relatives such as first cousin) between UAE native population added more complexity to the population. Therefore, it was important to analysis the population before applying any new tools to forensic analysis and paternity testing in the UAE.. Two polymorphic systems were chosen (VNTRs and STRs) to investigate the population substructure. Five single loci VNTR/HinfI probes MS1, MS31, MS43A, YNH24 and G3 were used to profile 173 individuals from the UAE native Arabic population, 154 individuals from Indian and 112 individuals from Pakistani ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Identification of a locus, distinct from RDS-peripherin, for autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa on chromosome 6p. AU - Knowles, James A.. AU - Shugart, Yin. AU - Banerjee, Poulabi. AU - Gilliam, T. Conrad. AU - Lewis, Charles A.. AU - Jacobson, Samuel G.. AU - Ott, Jurg. PY - 1994/8. Y1 - 1994/8. N2 - We performed a genomic search for linkage to autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa in a large pedigree obtained from the Dominican Republic using microsatellite markers. Regions of the genome known to contain genes for retinitis pigmentosa were preferentially tested. One of these regions, on chromosome 6p, which contains the gene for peripherin, gave positive lod scores. Use of a mononucleotide repeat polymorphism in the peripherin gene excluded this locus. Two- and multi-point analyses suggest that the most likely location for the disease gene is near D6S291, which is located approximately 20 centimorgans telomeric from peripherin.. AB - We performed a genomic search for ...
The purpose of this study was to estimate the incidence of cases with transient and permanent CH in Hamadan, Iran. In our study, the incidence of CH is found to be 1/1250 of live birth. Of the 164 patients 105 cases (64 %) were proven to have permanent CH and 59 cases (36%) had transient hypothyroidism. The frequency of CH as well as transient hypothyroidism was relatively high in our study. Our data confirm the findings of previous studies regarding the high prevalence of hypothyroidism in Iran (15-18). For example, a meta-analysis study by Veisani et al. (18) revealed that the overall incidence of CH in Iran is 2/1000 of live births. Since the most common etiology of CH was dyshormonogenesis as indicated in the studies conducted by Hashemipour et al. (9) and Karamizadeh et al. (19) in Iran, a relatively high rate of parental consanguinity (25%) among infant with congenital hypothyroidism could account for the increased incidence of CH in our region. In support of the previous data, we also ...
Congenital afibrinogenemia results from mutations in one of three genes, FGA, FGB, or FGG. Each of these genes provides instructions for making one part (subunit) of a protein called fibrinogen. This protein is important for blood clot formation (coagulation), which is needed to stop excessive bleeding after injury. In response to injury, fibrinogen is converted to fibrin, the main protein in blood clots. Fibrin proteins attach to each other, forming a stable network that makes up the blood clot.. Congenital afibrinogenemia is caused by a complete absence of fibrinogen protein. Most FGA, FGB, and FGG gene mutations that cause this condition result in a premature stop signal in the instructions for making the respective protein. If any protein is made, it is nonfunctional. When any one subunit is missing, the fibrinogen protein is not assembled, which results in the absence of fibrin. Consequently, blood clots do not form in response to injury, leading to the excessive bleeding seen in people ...
Purpose: : To identify the molecular defect responsible for autosomal recessive cone-rod dystrophy segregating in a large multiplex and consanguineous family of Christian-Arab ancestry. Methods: : This pedigree was made of six nuclear families gathering ten affected members and six healthy relatives. All family members underwent general and ophthalmologic examinations. Among affected patients, 7/10 displayed typical signs of the so-called cone-rod dystrophy, 1/10 was affected with a typical Stargardt disease. In 2/10 affected patients the exact diagnosis could not be definitely carried with regard to their young age. Each family members blood was collected in Afula, Israel,and analyzed in France.A linkage analysis was performed in this pedigree using polymorphic markers flanking each of the three hitherto known arCRD loci: CORD3, CORD8 and CORD9, respectively. Subsequently, all 50 exons of the ABCA4 gene at the CORD3 locus were screened for mutations by direct sequencing. Results: : Linkage ...

Genetic hearing impairment affects around 1 in every 2,000 births1. The bulk (approximately 70%) of genetic deafness is non-syndromic, in which hearing impairment is not associated with any other abnormalities. Over 25 loci involved in non-syndromic deafness have been mapped and mutations in connexin 26 have been identified as a cause of non-sydromic deafness2. One locus for non-syndromic recessive deafness, DFNB2 (ref. 4), has been localized to the same chromosomal region, 11q14, as one of the loci, USH1B, underlying the recessive deaf-blind syndrome. Usher syndrome type 1b, which is characterized by profound congenital sensorineural deafness, constant vestibular dysfunction and prepubertal onset of retinitis pigmentosa. Recently, it has been shown that a gene encoding an unconventional myosin, myosin VIIA, underlies the mouse recessive deafness mutation, shaker-1 (ref. 5) as well as Usher syndrome type 1b6. Mice with shaker-1 demonstrate typical neuroepithelial defects manifested by hearing loss and
