A molecular pathway revealing a genetic basis for human cardiac and craniofacial defects. (1/620)

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)

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin alters cardiovascular and craniofacial development and function in sac fry of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). (2/620)

Hallmark signs of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) toxicity in rainbow trout sac fry, are yolk sac edema, hemorrhage, craniofacial malformation, and growth retardation culminating in mortality. Our objective was to determine the role of cardiovascular dysfunction in the development of this toxicity. An embryotoxic TCDD dose (385 pg/g egg) caused a progressive reduction in blood flow in rainbow trout sac fry manifested first and most dramatically in the 1st and 2nd branchial arches and vessels perfusing the lower jaw. Blood flow was reduced later in the infraorbital artery and occipital vein of the head as well as segmental vessels and caudal vein of the trunk. Reduced perfusion occurred last in gill branchial arteries involved with oxygen uptake and the subintestinal vein and vitelline vein involved with nutrient uptake. Although heart rate throughout sac fry development was not affected, heart size at 50 days post-fertilization (dpf) was reduced far more than body weight or length, suggesting that the progressive circulatory failure caused by TCDD is associated with reduced cardiac output. Craniofacial development was arrested near hatch, giving rise to craniofacial malformations in which the jaws and anterior nasal structures were underdeveloped. Unlike the medaka embryo, in which TCDD causes apoptosis in the medial yolk vein, endothelial cell death was not observed in rainbow trout sac fry. These findings suggest a primary role for arrested heart development and reduced perfusion of tissues with blood in the early-life stage toxicity of TCDD in trout.  (+info)

Smad5 knockout mice die at mid-gestation due to multiple embryonic and extraembryonic defects. (3/620)

Smad5 has been implicated as a downstream signal mediator for several bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). To understand the in vivo function of Smad5, we generated mice deficient in Smad5 using embryonic stem (ES) cell technology. Homozygous mutant embryos die between E9.5 and E11.5, and display variable phenotypes. Morphological defects are first detected at E8.0 in the developing amnion, gut and heart (the latter defect being similar to BMP-2 knockout mice). At later stages, mutant embryos fail to undergo proper turning, have craniofacial and neural tube abnormalities, and are edematous. In addition, several extraembryonic lesions are observed. After E9.0, the yolk sacs of the mutants contain red blood cells but lack a well-organized vasculature, which is reminiscent of BMP-4, TGF-beta1 and TGF-beta type II receptor knockout mice. In addition, the allantois of many Smad5 mutants is fused to the chorion, but is not well-elongated. A unique feature of the Smad5 mutant embryos is that ectopic vasculogenesis and hematopoiesis is observed in the amnion, likely due to mislocation of allantois tissue. Despite the expression of Smad5 from gastrulation onwards, and in contrast to knockouts of Smad2 and Smad4, Smad5 only becomes essential later in extraembryonic and embryonic development.  (+info)

Fetal craniofacial structure and intracranial morphology in a case of Apert syndrome. (4/620)

Apert syndrome is characterized by craniosynostosis, midfacial hypoplasia and bilateral syndactyly. We document in detail the intrauterine natural history of Apert syndrome by serial sonographic examination. Ultrasound examination of a 19-week fetus revealed an abnormal appearance of the skull. The subsequent examination including transvaginal brain scanning demonstrated a deformed occipital part of the cerebrum and lateral ventricles, frontal bossing, a low nasal bridge and an abnormal appearance of the fetal hands and feet. The distortion of the fetal profile became progressively worse with advancing gestation. Towards the end of pregnancy, anterior prominence of the cerebrum, ventricles and corpus callosum was demonstrated and mild non-progressive ventriculomegaly was seen. The female 3152-g newborn with the typical facial appearance of Apert syndrome, bilateral syndactyly of the fingers and toes and isolated cleft palate was delivered at 37 weeks. Postnatal three-dimensional computed tomography scan demonstrated the fusion of the coronal suture and a wide mid-line calvarial defect, and cranial magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the prenatal sonographic findings. Although the karyotype was normal, genomic DNA analysis of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 revealed Ser252Trp, which is specified in the mutational basis of Apert syndrome. The time course of the prenatal findings in this case may help increase understanding of the intrauterine natural history of Apert syndrome.  (+info)

Phenotypic findings of Cowden syndrome and Bannayan-Zonana syndrome in a family associated with a single germline mutation in PTEN. (5/620)

Cowden syndrome (CS) and Bannayan-Zonana syndrome (BZS) are two hamartoma syndromes with distinct phenotypic features. Although partial clinical overlap exists between CS and BZS, they are considered to be separate entities. PTEN has been identified as the susceptibility gene for both disorders, suggesting allelism. We have identified a germline mutation, R335X, in PTEN in a family consisting of two female members with the phenotypic findings of CS and two male members with the phenotypic findings of BZS. To our knowledge, this is the first report that shows the presence of separate subjects with CS and with BZS in a single family associated with a single germline PTEN mutation.  (+info)

The face of Smith-Magenis syndrome: a subjective and objective study. (6/620)

We report a study of 55 subjects with Smith-Magenis syndrome, aged 9 months to 35 years. Each person has been evaluated with an assessment of "gestalt" and detailed facial measurement, using previously published methodology, with compilation of Z score pattern profiles. The facial phenotype of SMS is quite distinctive, even in the young child. The overall face shape is broad and square. The brows are heavy, with excessive lateral extension of the eyebrows. The eyes slant upwards and appear close set and deep set. The nose has a depressed root and, in the young child, a scooped bridge. With time, the bridge becomes more ski jump shaped. The height of the nose is markedly reduced while the nasal base is broad and the tip of the nose is full. The shape of the mouth and upper lip are most distinctive. The mouth is wide with full upper and lower lips. The central portion of the upper lip is fleshy and everted with bulky philtral pillars, producing a tented appearance that, in profile, is striking. With age, mandibular growth is greater than average and exceeds that of the maxilla. This leads to increased jaw width and protrusion and marked midface hypoplasia. Craniofacial pattern analysis supports these subjective impressions. After mid-childhood, mandibular dimensions consistently exceed their maxillary counterparts. Craniofacial widths are greater than corresponding depths and heights. Nasal height is reduced while nasal width is increased. There is mild brachycephaly. The most marked age related changes are increased width of the nose and lower face (mandibular width) with reduction in nasal height and midfacial depth.  (+info)

PTEN mutation spectrum and genotype-phenotype correlations in Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome suggest a single entity with Cowden syndrome. (7/620)

Germline mutations in the tumour suppressor gene PTEN have been implicated in two hamartoma syndromes that exhibit some clinical overlap, Cowden syndrome (CS) and Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRR). PTEN maps to 10q23 and encodes a dual specificity phosphatase, a substrate of which is phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-triphosphate, a phospholipid in the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase pathway. CS is characterized by multiple hamartomas and an increased risk of benign and malignant disease of the breast, thyroid and central nervous system, whilst the presence of cancer has not been formally documented in BRR. The partial clinical overlap in these two syndromes is exemplified by the hallmark features of BRR: macrocephaly and multiple lipomas, the latter of which occur in a minority of individuals with CS. Additional features observed in BRR, which may also occur in a minority of CS patients, include Hashimoto's thyroiditis, vascular malformations and mental retardation. Pigmented macules of the glans penis, delayed motor development and neonatal or infant onset are noted only in BRR. In this study, constitutive DNA samples from 43 BRR individuals comprising 16 sporadic and 27 familial cases, 11 of which were families with both CS and BRR, were screened for PTEN mutations. Mutations were identified in 26 of 43 (60%) BRR cases. Genotype-phenotype analyses within the BRR group suggested a number of correlations, including the association of PTEN mutation and cancer or breast fibroadenoma in any given CS, BRR or BRR/CS overlap family ( P = 0.014), and, in particular, truncating mutations were associated with the presence of cancer and breast fibroadenoma in a given family ( P = 0.024). Additionally, the presence of lipomas was correlated with the presence of PTEN mutation in BRR patients ( P = 0.028). In contrast to a prior report, no significant difference in mutation status was found in familial versus sporadic cases of BRR ( P = 0.113). Comparisons between BRR and a previously studied group of 37 CS families suggested an increased likelihood of identifying a germline PTEN mutation in families with either CS alone or both CS and BRR when compared with BRR alone ( P = 0.002). Among CS, BRR and BRR/CS overlap families that are PTEN mutation positive, the mutation spectra appear similar. Thus, PTEN mutation-positive CS and BRR may be different presentations of a single syndrome and, hence, both should receive equal attention with respect to cancer surveillance.  (+info)

Differential responses to parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) deficiency in the various craniofacial cartilages. (8/620)

PTHrP null mutant mice exhibit skeletal abnormalities both in the craniofacial region and limbs. In the growth plate cartilage of the null mutant, a diminished number of proliferating chondrocytes and accelerated chondrocytic differentiation are observed. In order to examine the effect of PTHrP deficiency on the craniofacial morphology and highlight the differential feature of the composing cartilages, we examined the various cartilages in the craniofacial region of neonatal PTHrP deficient mice. The major part of the cartilaginous anterior cranial base appeared to be normal in the homozygous PTHrP deficient mice. However, acceleration of chondrocytic differentiation and endochondral bone formation was observed in the posterior part of the anterior cranial base and in the cranial base synchondroses. Ectopic bone formation was observed in the soft tissue-running mid-portion of the Meckel's cartilage, where the cartilage degenerates and converts to ligament in the course of normal development. The zonal structure of the mandibular condylar cartilage was scarcely affected, but the whole condyle was reduced in size. These results suggest the effect of PTHrP deficiency varies widely between the craniofacial cartilages, according to the differential features of each cartilage.  (+info)

Most human birth defects are highly variable. Our ability to diagnose, treat and prevent defects relies on our understanding of this variability. Mutation of the transcription factor GATA3 in humans causes the highly variable Hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural Deafness and Renal dysplasia (HDR) syndrome. Although named for a triad of defects patients with HDR can also exhibit craniofacial defects. Through a forward genetic screen for craniofacial mutants, we isolated a zebrafish mutant in which the first cysteine of the second zinc finger of Gata3 is mutated. Because mutation of the homolgous cysteine causes HDR in humans, these zebrafish mutants will be a rapid and effective animal model for understanding the role of gata3 in the HDR disease spectrum. We demonstrate that, unexpectedly, the chaperone proteins Ahsa1 and Hsp90 promote severe craniofacial phenotypes in our zebrafish model of HDR Syndrome. The strengths of the zebrafish system, including rapid development, genetic tractability and ...

Mutant mice mimic the craniofacial phenotypes of jaw dysplasia, micrognathia, dysplastic temporomandibular joints, auricular dysmorphism, and missing of the squamosal zygomatic process. Mutant EdnraY129F mice also exhibit hearing impairment in line with strong abnormalities of the ossicles and further, reduction of some lung volumetric parameters. In general, heterozygous and homozygous mice demonstrated inter-individual diversity of expression of the craniofacial phenotypes. Many of these phenotypes were also observed or described for MFDA patients. Thus the mutant EdnraY129F mice seem to be a valuable viable model for complex human syndromes of the first and second pharyngeal arches, the understanding of the human MFDA syndrome and for the development of therapeutic interventions.

The chick is a classic embryological system that has been meticulously documented and described (Hamburger and Hamilton, 1951). Several institutions have bred and maintained mutant avian lines that have lent a significant amount of insight into numerous developmental processes (Robb et al., 2011). Some of the most well-studied avian genetic developmental mutants have been the talpids (talpid, talpid2 and talpid3): three independently discovered, naturally occurring, autosomal recessive, lethal mutants characterized by pre-axial polydactyly, craniofacial anomalies and a host of other developmental defects (Abbott et al., 1959; Ede and Kelly, 1964a,b; MacCabe and Abbott, 1974). Although talpid became extinct, the study of the genetic and molecular etiology of the talpid2 and talpid3 phenotypes continues.. talpid2 and talpid3 have similar limb phenotypes, yet the craniofacial phenotypes are distinct. talpid3 has severe hypotelorism, a hypoplastic frontonasal mass superior to the eyes, medially ...

Polycystin 2 (Pkd2), which belongs to the transient receptor potential family, plays a critical role in development. Pkd2 is mainly localized in the primary cilia, which also function as mechanoreceptors in many cells that influence multiple biological processes including Ca(2+) influx, chemical activity and signalling pathways. Mutations in many cilia proteins result in craniofacial abnormalities. Orofacial tissues constantly receive mechanical forces and are known to develop and grow through intricate signalling pathways. Here we investigate the role of Pkd2, whose role remains unclear in craniofacial development and growth. In order to determine the role of Pkd2 in craniofacial development, we located expression in craniofacial tissues and analysed mice with conditional deletion of Pkd2 in neural crest-derived cells, using Wnt1Cre mice. Pkd2 mutants showed many signs of mechanical trauma such as fractured molar roots, distorted incisors, alveolar bone loss and compressed temporomandibular joints, in

Orbital cartilage encircles the eye giving strength and support to the neural retina. It is derived from cranial neural crest cells (NCCs), cells that can generate a number of cell types including neurons, glia, and melanocytes. Uniquely in the head, NCCs also make skeletal derivatives that form the majority of the craniofacial skeleton. Differentiation of NCCs into cartilage requires inductive interactions between NCCs and the local environment. The nature of these interactions is largely unknown. We hypothesise that formation of the eye socket requires interactions between the eye and the NCCs during early development. This is supported by evidence in animals and humans where lack of eyes (anophthalmia) or formation of small eyes (microphthalmia) result in craniofacial abnormalities. Orbital cartilage is found in the majority of vertebrates but the ability to induce it has been lost to mammals. A comparison of chick and mouse should help us determine which tissues and molecules are necessary for this
In a large-scale screen for mutations affecting embryogenesis in zebrafish, we identified 48 mutations in 34 genetic loci specifically affecting craniofacial development. Mutants were analyzed for abnormalities in the cartilaginous head skeleton. Further, the expression of marker genes was studied to investigate potential abnormalities in mutant rhombencephalon, neural crest, and pharyngeal endoderm. The results suggest that the identified mutations affect three distinct aspects of craniofacial development. In one group, mutations affect the overall pattern of the craniofacial skeleton, suggesting that the genes are involved in the specification of these elements. Another large group of mutations affects differentiation and morphogenesis of cartilage, and may provide insight into the genetic control of chondrogenesis. The last group of mutations leads to the abnormal arrangement of skeletal elements and may uncover important tissue-tissue interactions underlying jaw development. ...

In cultured cells, the adaptor protein SH3PXD2B is capable of recruiting a variety of proteins involved in invadosome assembly and function. It is therefore considered as an essential organizer of invadosomes active in cellular responses that require extracellular matrix degradation. Despite increasing knowledge about its properties and functions at the molecular and cellular levels, its physiological role in whole animals has not previously been assessed. Here, we present that SH3PXD2B is essential for normal postnatal development and disrupting SH3PXD2B can lead to glaucoma. Our work on SH3PXD2B is based on nee, a spontaneous mutation in mice which arose on an inbred background. Mice homozygous for the nee mutation were initially noted to exhibit runted growth, craniofacial abnormalities and ocular defects. Our additional physiological characterization has uncovered skeletal abnormalities, hearing impairment, infertility and a form of lipodystrophy. Using genetic mapping and DNA sequencing, the cause
At a time when medical technologies make it ever easier to enhance our minds and bodies, a debate has arisen about whether such efforts promote a process of "normalization," which makes it ever harder to tolerate the natural anatomical differences among us. The debate becomes especially complicated when it addresses the surgical alteration, or "shaping," of children. This volume explores the ethical and social issues raised by the recent proliferation of surgeries designed to make children born with physical differences look more normal. Using three cases-surgeries to eliminate craniofacial abnormalities such as cleft lip and palate, surgeries to correct ambiguous genitalia, and surgeries to lengthen the limbs of children born with dwarfism-the contributors consider the tensions parents experience when making such life-altering decisions on behalf of or with their children. The essays in this volume offer in-depth examinations of the significance and limits of surgical alteration through ...

The scientific objective of this study is to determine if all patients with Craniofrontonasal Syndrome (CFNS) contain mutations in the ephrin-B1 (EFNB1) gene in Xq12. We will use mutational analysis of EFNB1 as our principal tool to study the genetics of CFNS. Previously, we had mapped the CFNS locus to a 13 cM region in Xp22 using linkage analysis of 12 unrelated CFNS families with 2 or more affected family members in 2-4 generations. More recently there have been two reports that 23 independent CFNS patients all have mutations in the EFNB1 located at Xq12. Hence, either CFNS displays genetic heterogeneity with at least two genes (one in Xp22 and EFNB1) or our previous linkage analysis was inaccurate and all CFNS patients have EFNB1 mutations.. We have previously collected a large number of coded blood samples from patients with DFNS. We propose to sequence the EFNB1 in all 12 of our previously published CFNS families as well as 6 additional families, 22 sporadic CFNS patients, and two CFNS ...
Frontonasal dysplasia (FND) is a congenital malformation of the midface. For the diagnosis of FND, a patient should present at least two of the following characteristics: hypertelorism (an increased distance between the eyes), a wide nasal root, vertical midline cleft of the nose and/or upper lip, cleft of the wings of the nose, malformed nasal tip, encephalocele (an opening of the skull with protrusion of the brain) or V-shaped hair pattern on the forehead. The cause of FND remains unknown. FND seems to be sporadic (random) and multiple environmental factors are suggested as possible causes for the syndrome. However, in some families multiple cases of FND were reported, which suggests a genetic cause of FND. Midfacial malformations can be subdivided into two different groups. One group with hypertelorism, this includes FND. The other with hypotelorism (a decreased distance between the eyes), this includes holoprosencephaly (failure of development of the forebrain). In addition, a facial cleft ...
Craniofacial abnormalities account for about one-third of all human congenital defects, but our understanding of the genetic mechanisms governing craniofacial development is incomplete. We show that GTF2IRD1 is a genetic determinant of mammalian craniofacial and cognitive development, and we implicate another member of the TFII-I transcription factor family, GTF2I, in both aspects. Gtf2ird1-null mice exhibit phenotypic abnormalities reminiscent of the human microdeletion disorder Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS); craniofacial imaging reveals abnormalities in both skull and jaws that may arise through misregulation of goosecoid, a downstream target of Gtf2ird1. In humans, a rare WBS individual with an atypical deletion, including GTF2IRD1, shows facial dysmorphism and cognitive deficits that differ from those of classic WBS cases. We propose a mechanism of cumulative dosage effects of duplicated and diverged genes applicable to other human chromosomal disorders.

The ability of alcohol to cause developmental anomalies has been demonstrated in a broad range of taxa, from insects to mammals. In humans, alcohol consumption during pregnancy can result in fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), which consists of a persistent growth deficiency, craniofacial dysmorphology and deficient brain growth with associated neurocognitive deficits (Jones and Smith, 1973). FAS is the leading known cause of congenital mental retardation in the Western world (Pulsifer, 1996), and the most severe form of a broad range of disorders known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) (Hoyme et al., 2005). The prevalence of FAS in the world is one to three per 1000 births, indicating a serious medical and societal problem (May and Gossage, 2001). Despite the growing awareness of FAS and FASD (FAS/FASD) and posted warnings on alcoholic beverages, consumption of alcohol during pregnancy continues, highlighting the need for an understanding of the molecular basis of FAS and developing novel ...
Amongst Weaver syndrome patients tested, some revealed intragenic mutations in the NSD1 gene (nuclear receptor binding SET domain protein 1), which was also associated with Sotos syndrome. The majority of identified NSD1 functional domains are located in exons 11-23 and the entire recognized mutations were clustered in these mutations. The mutations that are associated with Weaver syndrome are positioned in a minor specific fraction of the gene in exons 5, 16, 19, 22, and 23. The detection of NSD1 mutation in Weaver and Sotos syndrome patients reveals that both disorders are allelic, nevertheless, the possibility of a second separate Weaver syndrome gene exists. The precise pathophysiology and the etiology of the residual cases remain vague.. NSD1 gene consists of 2,696 amino acids and has a molecular weight of 296,652 kDa. The NSD1 gene provides directions for creating a protein with unknown function. This protein is active in numerous organs and tissues, comprising the brain, the kidney, ...
By PLoS Biology, Before a fertilized egg begins the repeated rounds of cell division that turn the single cell into a proliferating, streaming, differentiating mass of cells, its fate may already be sealed. Inherited mutations in genes involved in segregating and sorting embryonic cells can result in serious abnormalities in body patterning and appear to underlie an inherited X-linked disorder (so-called because the mutated genes lie on the X chromosome) called craniofrontonasal syndrome (CFNS). X-linked disorders tend to affect males more severely than females, because boys inherit just one X chromosome while girls inherit two: if one gene is defective, the other can fill in. CFNS is a rare departure from this pattern, with females exhibiting the most severe symptoms. This disfiguring disorder is characterized by a range of skull aberrations, including facial asymmetry, widely spaced eyes, and abnormal head shape, as well as polydactyly and fused digits ...

Children with craniofacial anomalies, such as microtia, experience significant teasing, rejection, and other negative social responses, such as social avoidance from others. These occurrences show trends toward social withdrawal, likely as a reaction to the negative reactions of others (Snyder, 2005). Children with craniofacial anomalies are treated differently than children without such defects; the affected children consequently have been shown to be more introverted and to express a more negative self-concept than unaffected children (Weinstein, 2005). These negative events may also result in decreased self-esteem, increased anxiety, behavioral problems, and difficulty with social integration. The patients who request ear reconstruction often complain of diminished self-consciousness and being teased by peers. Children born with microtia tend towards social isolation, they play less with other children, meet less people, and hide more commonly from certain people, and avoid school. The longer ...

are often expressed in adjacent tissue layers, such a signaling loop may be a general feature of organogenesis. Exposure of chick embryos to cyclopamine (a steriodal alkaloid) inhibits the response of target cells to SHH signaling, and induces craniofacial malformations including fusion of optic vesicles, nasal placodes, and maxillary and mandibular arches (Cooper et al., 1998, Science 280:1603). To determine if these malformations result from loss of inductive signals, we treated chick embryos with cyclopamine and looked for changes in gene expression. Primitive streak-stage embryos were treated with 5 mg of cyclopamine for 3 days, fixed and subjected to in situ hybidization. Cyclopamine treatment results in a marked reduction of fgf8 ...

Frontonasal dysplasia is a condition that results from abnormal development of the head and face before birth. People with frontonasal dysplasia have at least two of the following features: widely spaced eyes (ocular hypertelorism); a broad nose; a slit (cleft) in one or both sides of the nose; no nasal tip; a central cleft involving the nose, upper lip, or roof of the mouth (palate); incomplete formation of the front of the skull with skin covering the head where bone should be (anterior cranium bifidum occultum); or a widows peak hairline.. Other features of frontonasal dysplasia can include additional facial malformations, absence or malformation of the tissue that connects the left and right halves of the brain (the corpus callosum), and intellectual disability.. There are at least three types of frontonasal dysplasia that are distinguished by their genetic causes and their signs and symptoms. In addition to the features previously described, each type of frontonasal dysplasia is associated ...
Frontonasal dysplasia (FND) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by hypertelorism, broad nasal tip and root, bifid nose and oral, palatal and facial clefting. Additional findings include microphthalmia, coloboma, and low-set, posteriorly rotated ears. FND1 (MIM 136760), FND2 (MIM 613451) and FND3 (MIM 613456) are autosomal recessive disorders caused by mutations in the ALX3, ALX4 and ALX1 genes. Patients with FND2 can also have skull defects, coronal craniosynostosis, cryptorchidism, agenesis of corpus callosum, total alopecia and mental retardation. Mutations in ALX4 also cause parietal foramina 2 (PFM2; MIM 609597), an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by symmetrical, oval parietal bone defects, cranium bifidum and scalp defect. Parietal foramina also occurs as part of the Potocki-Shaffer syndrome (PSS; MIM 601224), a rare contiguous gene deletion syndrome due to haploinsufficiency of the 11p12-p11.2 region, encompassing the ALX4 gene.

We describe a recessively inherited frontonasal malformation characterized by a distinctive facial appearance, with hypertelorism, wide nasal bridge, short nasal ridge, bifid nasal tip, broad columella, widely separated slit-like nares, long philtrum with prominent bilateral swellings, and midline notch in the upper lip and alveolus. Additional recurrent features present in a minority of individuals have been upper eyelid ptosis and midline dermoid cysts of craniofacial structures. Assuming recessive inheritance, we mapped the locus in three families to chromosome 1 and identified mutations in ALX3, which is located at band 1p13.3 and encodes the aristaless-related ALX homeobox 3 transcription factor. In total, we identified seven different homozygous pathogenic mutations in seven families. These mutations comprise missense substitutions at critical positions within the conserved homeodomain as well as nonsense, frameshift, and splice-site mutations, all predicting severe or complete loss of function.

The rhombencephalic neural crest play several roles in craniofacial development. They give rise to the cranial sensory ganglia and much of the craniofacial skeleton, and are vital for patterning of the craniofacial muscles. The loss of Hoxa1 or Hoxa2 function affects the development of multiple neural crest-derived structures. To understand how these two genes function together in craniofacial development, an allele was generated that disrupts both of these linked genes. Some of the craniofacial defects observed in the double mutants were additive combinations of those that exist in each of the single mutants, indicating that each gene functions independently in the formation of these structures. Other defects were found only in the double mutants demonstrating overlapping or synergistic functions. We also uncovered multiple defects in the attachments and trajectories of the extrinsic tongue and hyoid muscles in Hoxa2 mutants. Interestingly, the abnormal trajectory of two of these muscles, the ...

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 ...
A cleft is a split or seperation of parts. During the early part of pregnancy, seperate areas of the babys face and head develop individually and then join together. If this joining does not takes place or is incomplete, the baby can be born with a cleft lip on one or both sides, with or without a cleft palate.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a heterogeneous disease, but genetically defined models can provide an entry point to studying the molecular underpinnings of this disorder. We generated germline mutant mice with loss-of-function mutations in Chd8, a de novo mutation strongly associated with ASD, and demonstrate that these mice display hallmark ASD behaviors, macrocephaly, and craniofacial abnormalities similar to patient phenotypes. Chd8 mice display a broad, brain-region-specific dysregulation of major regulatory and cellular processes, most notably histone and chromatin modification, mRNA and protein processing, Wnt signaling, and cell-cycle regulation. We also find altered synaptic physiology in medium spiny neurons of the nucleus accumbens. Perturbation of Chd8 in adult mice recapitulates improved acquired motor learning behavior found in Chd8 animals, suggesting a role for CHD8 in adult striatal circuits. These results support a mechanism linking chromatin modification to striatal ...

Craniofacial development is a highly dynamic and hierarchical process that involves multiple gene regulatory networks, distinct embryonic lineages, and reciprocal signaling interactions among cells and tissues. Mechanisms that orchestrate the various aspects of this complex process and ultimately enable the neural, skeletal, muscular, vascular, and epidermal components of the head to become structurally and functionally integrated, remain unclear. Our research focuses on the role of one progenitor population, the neural crest, during craniofacial development. Neural crest cells originate along the dorsal margins of the neural tube, and they migrate extensively throughout the head. Their derivatives include dermis, cartilages, bones, and tendons, and they interact extensively with non-neural crest-derived elements such as blood vessels, osteoclasts, muscles, epidermis, and nerves. To determine the extent to which neural crest cells regulate the size, shape, and integration of craniofacial ...
We studied two unrelated boys with intellectual disability (ID) and a striking facial resemblance suggestive of a hitherto unappreciated syndrome. Exome sequencing in both families identified identical de novo mutations in PACS1, suggestive of causality. To support these genetic findings and to understand the pathomechanism of the mutation, we studied the protein in vitro and in vivo. Altered PACS1 forms cytoplasmic aggregates in vitro with concomitant increased protein stability and shows impaired binding to an isoform-specific variant of TRPV4, but not the full-length protein. Furthermore, consistent with the human pathology, expression of mutant PACS1 mRNA in zebrafish embryos induces craniofacial defects most likely in a dominant-negative fashion. This phenotype is driven by aberrant specification and migration of SOX10-positive cranial, but not enteric, neural-crest cells. Our findings suggest that PACS1 is necessary for the formation of craniofacial structures and that perturbation of its ...

Not to mention that accutane can destroy your liver if levels become toxic. Another example is a drug that I take for my Rheumatoid Arthritis, Methotrexate. MTX is a chemothereputic agent that is given in low doses to auto-immune patients, but attacks newly dividing cells (including cancer) and can destroy the liver and has also been included in some formations of RU-486 type drugs.

Acetone, an aliphatic ketone, is a ubiquitous industrial solvent and chemical intermediate; consequently, the opportunity for human exposure is high. The potential for acetone to cause developmental toxicity was assessed in Sprague-Dawley rats exposed to 0, 440, 2200, or 11000 ppm, and in Swiss (CD-1) mice exposed to 0, 440, 2200, and 6600 ppm acetone vapors, 6 h/day, 7 days/week. Each of the four treatment groups consisted of 10 virgin females (for comparison), and ~32 positively mated rats or mice. Positively mated mice were exposed on days 6-17 of gestation, and rats on 6-19 dg. The day of plug or sperm detection was designated as 0 dg. Body weights were obtained throughout the study period, and uterine and fetal body weights were obtained at sacrifice (rats, 20 dg; mice, 18 dg). Implants were enumerated and their status recorded. Live fetuses were sexed and examined for gross, visceral, skeletal, and soft-tissue craniofacial defects.. Pregnant rats did not exhibit overt symptoms of toxicity ...

Looking for online definition of Roberts syndrome in the Medical Dictionary? Roberts syndrome explanation free. What is Roberts syndrome? Meaning of Roberts syndrome medical term. What does Roberts syndrome mean?
Referred pain is frequently associated with misdiagnosis and unnecessary therapy directed to the pain location instead of its origin. When craniofacial pain is the sole symptom of myocardial ischemia, failure to recognize its cardiac source can endanger the patient. In particular, patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who do not experience chest pain run a very high risk of misdiagnosis and death. Pain that is limited to the craniofacial region during myocardial ischemia has so far been described only in case reports and its overall prevalence is unknown. Experimental research in animals suggests a vagal involvement in the pathological mechanisms of cardiac pain referred to the face.. The aim of this study was to gain knowledge about the prevalence, clinical characteristics and possible mechanisms of craniofacial pain of cardiac origin, in order to improve the clinicians ability to make a correct diagnosis. It was hypothesized that the quality of craniofacial pain from cardiac versus ...
Growth hormone (GH) secretion affects bone and cartilage physiology. This study investigated the effect of GH on the size of the craniofacial structures and their angular relationship. Three different models of mice with a genetically altered GH axis were used: GH excess (giant), dwarf GH antagonist (dwarf-Ant), and dwarf GH receptor knockout (dwarf-KO) mice. Each model was compared with the corresponding wild type (Wt). Five craniofacial distances were analysed: craniofacial length, upper face height, mandibular anterior height, mandibular ramus length, and mandibular corpus length. In addition, upper and lower incisor lengths and four angular relationships, nasal bone with cranial base, maxillary plane with cranial base, mandibular plane with cranial base, and the angle of the mandible, were determined. Data were analysed by one-way ANOVA.. Craniofacial length, upper face height and mandibular corpus length were significantly increased in the giant mice and significantly reduced in the dwarf ...
Robinow Syndrome: Extremely rare inherited disorder characterized by mild to moderate short stature due to postnatal growth retardation. Distinctive craniofacial abnormalities associated with skeletal malformations and genital anomalies complete the clinical presentation. The facial features of infants with this disorder resemble those of an 8-week-old fetus. The presence of macrocephaly, frontal bossing, severe ocular hypertelorism, anteverted nostril, and depressed nasal bridge are characteristics of the facial features. It is believed to be an autosomal dominant inheritance; however, some individuals present with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Very similar to Aarskog Syndrome. ...
Description: Over the recent years significant progress has been made in the development of bioinspired materials and therapeutic approaches. Although some of these new technologies are developed in craniofacial models or have a potential to revolutionize dental and craniofacial medicine, the dental community is not well informed about these new and exciting developments. The goal of this symposium is to provide an update on the current scientific developments, which can lead to novel bioinspired technologies for craniofacial repair and regeneration. Dr. Sfeir (University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA) will talk about NanoCaP cements for craniofacial regeneration, which utilize calcium phosphate nanoparticles as carriers for osteogenic molecules. These cements cure at physiological pH and can be resorbed in the body and substituted by bone tissue in a matter of months. These unique properties of tNanoCaP bioinspired cements provide a major improvement over the current calcium phosphate materials ...
