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)

Genomic microarrays have been used as the first-tier cytogenetic diagnostic test for patients with developmental delay/intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders and/or multiple congenital anomalies. The use of SNP arrays has revealed regions of homozygosity in the genome which can lead to identification of uniparental disomy and parental consanguinity in addition to copy number variations. Consanguinity is associated with an increased risk of birth defects and autosomal recessive disorders. However, the frequency of parental consanguinity in children with developmental disabilities is unknown, and consanguineous couples may not be identified during doctors visit or genetic counseling without microarray. We studied 607 proband pediatric patients referred for developmental disorders using a 4 × 180 K array containing both CGH and SNP probes. Using 720, 360, 180, and 90 Mb as the expected sizes of homozygosity for an estimated coefficient of inbreeding (F) 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, parental
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 ...
|b|This is further to my previous query regarding my marriage with my second cousin|/b|. I would like to know if a consanguineous marriage will always result in defective child? You had mentioned something about genetic disease in your reply. Can you tell me what that means? As far as the medical history is concerned, there have been no known diseases in our family that can be traced. You had also mentioned that there is 2 percent risk for defective children and this risk increases to 3 percent in the case of first cousins. Can you tell about this risk specifically in the case of second cousins?
In this ecological study, a robust negative correlation of r = − .62 (P less than .01) is reported between national IQs and consanguinity as measured by the log10 transformed percentage of consanguineous marriages for 72 countries. This correlation is reduced in magnitude, when IQ is controlled for GDP per capita (r = − .41, P less than .01); education index (r = − .40, P less than .01); and democracy index (r = − .42, P less than .01). Multiple regression analysis revealed that in the absence of the democracy index; percentage consanguineous marriages, education index and GDP per capita all exhibited stable final standardized β coefficients, however consanguinity had the least impact (β = 0, P greater than .05) whereas GDP per capita had the highest (β = .35, P greater than .01). This result is interpreted in light of cultural feedback theory, whereby it is suggested that consanguinity could subtly influence IQ at larger scales as a result of small IQ handicaps bought about through ...

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.. Results of this study showed that children, whose mothers had elementary education were 4.29 times more likely to ...

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. Thus tentacles of immoderations ensnare him permanently and squeeze him perpetually. Although, the crackpot man has made much progress but ironically all his progress is counter progress.

Abstract: This review includes for the first time a dynamical systems analysis of human quadrupedalism in Uner Tan syndrome, which is characterized by habitual quadrupedalism, impaired intelligence, and rudimentary speech. 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..

At their merry-makings, instead of singing they make a howling noise, in which they seem to imitate the cries of different kinds of beasts. However, they have some cunning fellows among them, who, by their juggling tricks, impose upon the rest. These, by ignorant or designing travellers, have been said to be very familiar with the devil, who enables them to play a thousand different pranks. But this is now no more believed than that the Laplanders are able to fell winds; a circumstance which has been seriously related by some of our sailors.. The resemblance between these ...

In my article two weeks ago about [the odds of knowing a cousin](/odds-knowing-your-cousins-23andme-part-1) I puzzled over the question of how many 3rd cousins a person might have. This is hard to answer, because it depends on figuring out how many successful offspring per generation the various levels of your family (and related families) have. Successful means that they also
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 ...
Identifying genetic variants that lead to discernible phenotypes is the core of Mendelian genetics. An approach that considers embryonic lethality as a bona fide Mendelian phenotype has the potential to reveal novel genetic causes, which will further our understanding of early human development at a molecular level. Consanguineous families in which embryonic lethality segregates as a recessive Mendelian phenotype offer a unique opportunity for high throughput novel gene discovery as has been established for other recessive postnatal phenotypes. We have studied 24 eligible families using autozygosity mapping and whole-exome sequencing. In addition to revealing mutations in genes previously linked to embryonic lethality in severe cases, our approach revealed seven novel candidate genes (THSD1, PIGC, UBN1, MYOM1, DNAH14, GALNT14, and FZD6). A founder mutation in one of these genes, THSD1, which has been linked to vascular permeability, accounted for embryonic lethality in three of the study families.

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 ...
Absolutely not.. The amount of saliva is a factor in whether or not you get DNA results at all. If you have them, thats it. While there is such a thing as partial results its because you need multiple passes of the DNA sequence to make sure there arent errors. No testing company will give you results if they dont get enough passes. A very small amount of saliva (like if theyre taking it from a 50 year old sealed envelope) might have this problem. If you dont have enough saliva for a proper test at a basic genetic genealogy company, they ask you to repeat the test.. In your case, Im afraid the answer is...you arent first cousins.. The expected range for first cousins is 553-1225 cM.. One strong possibility is that you are half first cousins, as the range for that is 137-856. There are many other possible relationships with 279 cM, but the others are less likely to be passed off as full first cousin.. ...
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) ...

Background: Neonatal diabetes (ND) is a rare condition (1:160.000-260.000 live births) associated with diabetes onset within the first 6 months of life. It can be permanent (PNDM) or transient (TNDM), and several genes can be implicated in both, namely KCNJ11. Clinical phenotypes usually correlate to the causal gene. KCNJ11 mutations are usually associated with PNDM whilst the most frequent cause of TNDM is disordered imprinting in the 6q24 locus.. Objective and hypotheses: To report a case with uncommon features.. Method: Case report.. Results: A male infant (DOB:04.04.2013), second child of a consanguineous couple, was born at the term of an uneventful pregnancy by vaginal delivery, adequate for gestational age, with Apgar 5/9/10. Minor dismorphies, hypotony and feeding difficulties were noticed. He was readmitted on the 11th day of life because of failure to thrive and clinical deterioration; 6 days later, severe diabetic ketoacidosis was diagnosed (pH 7.0, glucose 1421 mg/dl, Na+172 mmol/l). ...

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 ...
