A neuropsychological-genetic profile of atypical cri du chat syndrome: implications for prognosis. (1/39)

Cri du chat syndrome is associated with a deletion on the short arm of chromosome 5. The main diagnostic feature is a high pitched, cat-like cry which has recently been localised to 5p15.3 and is separate from the remaining clinical features of the syndrome, which have been localised to 5p15.2. The present study describes a family of four who have a deletion slightly distal (5p15.3) to the critical region. Detailed neuropsychological evaluations indicated a similar pattern of cognitive performance to that reported for subjects with typical CDCS but with only minimal intellectual impairment. In addition, in this family the 5p deletion is transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion, contrasting with most cases of CDCS, which are either de novo or occur as an unbalanced product of a balanced translocation in a normal parent. This study confirms the importance of differentiating between 5p deletions that coincide with the typical cri du chat phenotype which includes severe to profound learning disability and deletions that only delete the distal critical region that coincides with a milder degree of cognitive impairment and a much improved prognosis.  (+info)

Cri-du-chat syndrome: clinical profile and prenatal diagnosis. (2/39)

Prenatal diagnosis of cri-du-chat syndrome is described in 2 pregnancies. In Case 1, the mother was a balanced translocation carrier and had 2 previously affected off springs. Prenatal diagnosis by chorion villus sampling and cordocentesis was successful in diagnosing an affected conceptus and the pregnancy was electively terminated. Case 2 was referred for nonimmune foetal hydrops and cordocentesis revealed deletion 5p. This second case was noteworthy for the fact that deletion 5p has not been reported to cause foetal hydrops.  (+info)

Clinical and molecular characterisation of 80 patients with 5p deletion: genotype-phenotype correlation. (3/39)

The majority of deletions of the short arm of chromosome 5 are associated with cri du chat syndrome (CdCS) and patients show phenotypic and cytogenetic variability. To perform a genotype-phenotype correlation, 80 patients from the Italian CdCS Register were analysed. Molecular cytogenetic analysis showed that 62 patients (77.50%) had a 5p terminal deletion characterised by breakpoint intervals ranging from p13 (D5S763) to p15.2 (D5S18). Seven patients (8.75%) had a 5p interstitial deletion, four (5%) a de novo translocation, and three (3.75%) a familial translocation. Of the remaining four patients, three (3.75%) had de novo 5p anomalies involving two rearranged cell lines and one (1.25%) had a 5p deletion originating from a paternal inversion. The origin of the deleted chromosome 5 was paternal in 55 out of 61 patients (90.2%). Genotype-phenotype correlation in 62 patients with terminal deletions highlighted a progressive severity of clinical manifestation and psychomotor retardation related to the size of the deletion. The analysis of seven patients with interstitial deletions and one with a small terminal deletion confirmed the existence of two critical regions, one for dysmorphism and mental retardation in p15.2 and the other for the cat cry in p15.3. Results from one patient permitted the cat cry region to be distally narrowed from D5S13 to D5S731. Furthermore, this study lends support to the hypothesis of a separate region in p15.3 for the speech delay.  (+info)

Growth study of cri du chat syndrome. (4/39)

We compared the growth of children with cri du chat (5p-) syndrome with the 1990 UK growth curves. Most subjects had impaired growth, particularly of head circumference. The more emaciated the child the more pronounced the microcephaly, showing the need for growth and nutrition monitoring.  (+info)

Deletion of the telomerase reverse transcriptase gene and haploinsufficiency of telomere maintenance in Cri du chat syndrome. (5/39)

Cri du chat syndrome (CdCS) results from loss of the distal portion of chromosome 5p, where the telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) gene is localized (5p15.33). hTERT is the rate-limiting component for telomerase activity that is essential for telomere-length maintenance and sustained cell proliferation. Here, we show that a concomitant deletion of the hTERT allele occurs in all 10 patients with CdCS whom we examined. Induction of hTERT mRNA in proliferating lymphocytes derived from five of seven patients was lower than that in unaffected control individuals (P<.05). The patient lymphocytes exhibited shorter telomeres than age-matched unaffected individuals (P<.0001). A reduction in replicative life span and a high rate of chromosome fusions were observed in cultured patient fibroblasts. Reconstitution of telomerase activity by ectopic expression of hTERT extended the telomere length, increased the population doublings, and prevented the end-to-end fusion of chromosomes. We conclude that hTERT is limiting and haploinsufficient for telomere maintenance in humans in vivo. Accordingly, the hTERT deletion may be one genetic element contributing to the phenotypic changes in CdCS.  (+info)

Heterozygous telomerase deficiency in mouse and man: when less is definitely not more. (6/39)

Telomerase, whose core components are a reverse transcriptase (TERT) and an integral RNA (TERC) maintains telomere ends. In somatic cells in the absence of telomerase telomeres get shorter leading to replicative cell senescence. In cancer cells abundant telomerase is present and cells do not senesce. Hence levels of telomerase may be crucial in regulating senescence and the transition to the neoplastic state. Heterozygous TERC mutations in man have been shown to underlie the rare inherited skin and bone marrow failure condition dyskeratosis congenita and a number of patients initially classified as idiopathic aplastic anemia have also been found to be mutated in one allele of the TERC gene. Families in which TERC mutations are segregating show disease anticipation, the severity of the disease increasing in successive generations due to decreasing telomere length. These data, along with biochemical analysis of mutated Terc and studies of Terc deficient mice show that in man and mouse haploinsufficiency for TERC leads to inability to correctly maintain telomeres, and highlights the importance of finely controlled telomerase levels in striking a balance between the processes of aging and cancer. Here we review several scenarios in which telomerase levels are disturbed, in human diseases or following genetic manipulation in mice.  (+info)

High-resolution mapping of genotype-phenotype relationships in cri du chat syndrome using array comparative genomic hybridization. (7/39)

We have used array comparative genomic hybridization to map DNA copy-number changes in 94 patients with cri du chat syndrome who had been carefully evaluated for the presence of the characteristic cry, speech delay, facial dysmorphology, and level of mental retardation (MR). Most subjects had simple deletions involving 5p (67 terminal and 12 interstitial). Genotype-phenotype correlations localized the region associated with the cry to 1.5 Mb in distal 5p15.31, between bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) containing markers D5S2054 and D5S676; speech delay to 3.2 Mb in 5p15.32-15.33, between BACs containing D5S417 and D5S635; and the region associated with facial dysmorphology to 2.4 Mb in 5p15.2-15.31, between BACs containing D5S208 and D5S2887. These results overlap and refine those reported in previous publications. MR depended approximately on the 5p deletion size and location, but there were many cases in which the retardation was disproportionately severe, given the 5p deletion. All 15 of these cases, approximately two-thirds of the severely retarded patients, were found to have copy-number aberrations in addition to the 5p deletion. Restriction of consideration to patients with only 5p deletions clarified the effect of such deletions and suggested the presence of three regions, MRI-III, with differing effect on retardation. Deletions including MRI, a 1.2-Mb region overlapping the previously defined cri du chat critical region but not including MRII and MRIII, produced a moderate level of retardation. Deletions restricted to MRII, located just proximal to MRI, produced a milder level of retardation, whereas deletions restricted to the still-more proximal MRIII produced no discernible phenotype. However, MR increased as deletions that included MRI extended progressively into MRII and MRIII, and MR became profound when all three regions were deleted.  (+info)

Determination of the 'critical region' for cat-like cry of Cri-du-chat syndrome and analysis of candidate genes by quantitative PCR. (8/39)

Cri-du-chat (CDC, OMIM 123450) is a chromosomal syndrome that results from partial deletions on the short arm of chromosome 5. The clinical features of CDC normally include high-pitched cat-like cry, mental retardation, microcephaly, hypertelorism and epicanthic folds. The cat-like cry is the most prominent clinical characteristic in newborn children and is usually considered as diagnostic for the CDC syndrome. Using a strategy of 'phenotype dissection', the critical region for cat-like cry was mapped to the chromosomal segment 5p15.3-5p15.2 in previous reports. In this study, the distal breakpoints of two interstitial deletions in two clinical distinctive CDC patients are analysed, one with and one without the cat-like cry. Using PCR, the critical region for the cat-like cry is mapped to a short 640 kbp region on chromosome 5p. Genome analysis of this critical region reveals a gene-rich sequence containing five known genes, five putative genes and three spliced EST sequences, altogether 71 predicted exons. Three genes, FLJ25076, a homolog to a ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme UBC-E2, FLJ20303, a nucleolar protein NOP2, which may play a role in the regulation of the cell cycle and MGC5309, a protein with similarity to Nut2, a Drosophila transcriptional coactivator, have been characterized and expression profiles determined by quantitative PCR. These results suggest that one candidate gene, FLJ25076, encodes a ubiquitin-conjugated enzyme E2 type, which is locally expressed in thoracic and scalp tissues. The other two genes are expressed uniformly in all tissues tested, which suggest that they are housekeeping genes.  (+info)

Cri Du Chat Syndrome Essay, Research Paper Cri Du Chat Syndrome (Cry of the Cat) By Chase Kuntz The Cri du Chat syndrome is the result of the deletion of segment 5p15.2 in the short arm of chromosome number five. No one is quite sure on how this deletion occurs, or even why it occurs. This deletion leads to deformities and mental retardation in the child.
The symptoms of cri du chat syndrome vary from case to case. The characteristic high-pitched, shrill cry associated with cri du chat syndrome is present during the first few weeks of life. The cry, which resembles the mewing of a cat, becomes less pronounced as affected infants grow older.. Affected infants may also display low birth weight, growth deficiencies, diminished muscle tone (hypotonia), and microcephaly, a condition that indicates that head circumference is smaller than would be expected for an infants age and sex.. Distinctive facial features may include an abnormally round or plump (moon) face, a broad nasal bridge, widely spaced eyes (hypertelorism), crossed eyes (strabismus), downwardly slanting eyelid folds (palpebral fissures), vertical skin folds that may cover the eyes inner corners (epicanthal folds), low-set ears, and an abnormally small jaw (micrognathia). Improper alignment of the upper and lower teeth (malocclusion) may also occur.. Additional facial features include an ...
Cri Du Chat syndrome results from the loss or deletion of a significant portion of the genetic material from the short arm of one of the pair of number five chromosomes. It is a relatively rare genetic condition with an estimated incidence of between around 1:25000 to 1:50000 births. There are more children being diagnosed now that genetic testing is carried out more frequently and is more accurate. The incidence appears to be the same in most countries, ethnic groups and regions. To date, there is no single environmental factor implicated in the incidence of this syndrome. The most distinctive characteristic, and the one for which the syndrome was originally named in 1963 by geneticist Jerome Lejeune, is the distinctive high-pitched, monotone, cat-like cry. Cri du Chat is French for cats cry. The cry is thought to be the result of structural abnormality and low muscle tone. Although the voice will naturally lower as the child grows, the characteristic high pitch often persists into ...
While there is no specific treatment available for cri du chat syndrome, early intervention is recommended in the areas of physical. The disorder is characterized by intellectual disability and delayed development, small head size (microcephaly), low birth weight, and weak muscle tone (hypotonia) in infancy.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine developed a method to expand the types of chromosomal abnormalities that noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) can detect. The study, published November 9 by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, uses a semiconductor sequencing platform to identify small chromosomal deletions or duplications, such as occur in Cri du Chat Syndrome and DiGeorge Syndrome, with a simple blood test from the expectant mother.. ...

Cri du chat syndrome (CdCS or 5p-) is a rare genetic disorder in which a variable portion of the short arm of chromosome 5 is missing or deleted. In 1963 the disorder was first described by doctor Lejeune who observed abnormal cat-like cry in newborn. In French, Cri du chat means cry of the cat.Cri du chat syndrome(cats cry). The disorder is characterized by intellectual disability and delayed development, small head size (microcephaly), low birth weight, and weak muscle tone (hypotonia) in infancy. Affected individuals also have peculier facial features, including widely set eyes (hypertelorism), low-set ears, a small jaw, and a rounded face. Some children with cri-du-chat syndrome are born with a heart defect.. ...
Cri-du-chat syndrome is a genetic condition. Also called cats cry or 5P- (5P minus) syndrome, its a deletion on the short arm of chromosome 5. Its a rare condition, occurring in only about 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 50,000 newborns, according to the Genetics Home Reference. But its one of the more common syndromes caused by chromosomal deletion.. Cri-du-chat means cry of the cat in French. Infants with the syndrome produce a high-pitched cry that sounds like a cat. The larynx develops abnormally due to the chromosome deletion, which affects the sound of the childs cry. The syndrome is more noticeable as the child ages, but becomes difficult to diagnose past age 2.. Cri-du-chat also carries many disabilities and abnormalities. A small percentage of infants with cri-du-chat syndrome are born with serious organ defects (especially heart or kidney defects) or other life-threatening complications that can result in death. Most fatal complications occur before the childs first birthday.. Children ...
In 1963, Lejeune et al described a syndrome consisting of multiple congenital anomalies, mental retardation, microcephaly, abnormal face, and a mewing cry in infants with a deletion of a B group chromosome (Bp-), later identified as 5p-.

Cri-du-chat is French for the cry of the cat. This syndrome affects between 1 in 20,000 and 1 in 50,000 babies. It is more common to spot on females with a ratio of 4:3. Interestingly, there is a prevalence of 1:305 among patients attending genetic counseling services.
Cri du chat syndrome can either be diagnosed before birth (prenatally) or after birth. In these disorders, entire chromosomes, or large segments of them, are missing, duplicated, or otherwise altered.
A rare chromosomal disorder that is apparent at birth, is characterized by a distinctive high, shrill, mewing, kitten-like cry during infancy.
History In 1963, Lejeune et al., High-pitched. Microcephaly. Growth failure Abnormal face.. Mental retardation Facial abnormalities. Multiple congenital anomalies.

Hypertelorism is an abnormally increased distance between two organs or bodily parts, usually referring to an increased distance between the orbits (eyes), or orbital hypertelorism. In this condition the distance between the inner eye corners as well as the distance between the pupils is greater than normal. Hypertelorism should not be confused with telecanthus, in which the distance between the inner eye corners is increased but that of the outer eye corners remains unchanged. Therefore the distance between the pupils is normal. Hypertelorism is a symptom in a variety of syndromes, including Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18), 1q21.1 duplication syndrome, basal cell nevus syndrome, DiGeorge syndrome and Loeys-Dietz syndrome. Hypertelorism can also be seen in Apert syndrome, craniofrontonasal dysplasia, Noonan syndrome, neurofibromatosis, LEOPARD syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, Andersen-Tawil syndrome, Waardenburg syndrome and cri du chat syndrome, along with piebaldism, ...

It is well documented that mothers of children with challenging behavior (CB) experience elevated levels of stress and that this persists over time, but less is known about the experience of mothers of children with rare genetic syndromes. This article describes 2 studies, 1 cross-sectional and 1 longitudinal, comparing well-being in mothers of children with Angelman, Cornelia de Lange and Cri du Chat syndrome who have either shown chronic CB ( n = 18) or low/no CB ( n = 26) in the preceding 7 years. The presence of chronic, long-term CB increased maternal stress but not depression or anxiety, and did not influence positive well-being. Stress relating specifically to their childs genetic syndrome reduced with age, highlighting the need for further exploration in this area. ...

In July 1958, as he was studying chromosomes linked to Down syndrome, he discovered the existence of an additional chromosome on the 21st pair. With this remarkable and ground-breaking discovery, he renamed the condition trisomy 21 to accurately describe the genetic abnormality. Thus, Dr. Lejeune, was the first to establish a link between an intellectual disability and its genetic cause. Dr. Lejeune would go on to discover the genetic cause of Cri-du-Chat syndrome and to also advance understanding of Fragile X syndrome and others. Even while he pursued his investigations, he continued to assist families caring for disabled children. His research was not intended to destroy the lives of these children but to understand the condition in hopes of finding a remedy or at least to better their lives and that of the families who cared for them.. In 1962 he was honored in Washington, D.C. by President John F. Kennedy with the first Kennedy Prize for his research into genetic intellectual disability and ...

We evaluated autism spectrum disorder (ASD) characteristics and social behavior in Angelman (AS; n = 19; mean age = 10.35 years), Cornelia de Lange (CdLS; n = 15; mean age = 12.40 years), and Cri du Chat (CdCS, also known as 5 p-syndrome; n = 19; mean age = 8.80 years) syndromes. The proportion of individuals meeting the ASD cutoff on the Social Communication Questionnaire was significantly higher in the AS and CdLS groups than in the CdCS group (p , .01). The groups demonstrated divergent social behavior profiles during social conditions in which adult availability, adult familiarity, and social demand were manipulated. Social enjoyment was significantly heightened in AS, whereas social approaches were heightened in individuals with CdCS. Social motivation, social communication, and enjoyment were significantly lower in CdLS. The findings highlight the importance of detailed observation when evaluating ASD and social behavior in genetic syndromes. ...

Hello, My daughter, Siobhan, has severe developmental delays. Shell be four in July, learned to walk unaided two months ago, and cannot speak. She can vocalize, but is unable to make consonants. She is able to approximate a few words and can use them correctly. After years of searching for the cause of her condition Siobhan has been diagnosed by Dr. Barbara Crandall, geneticist, at UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Crandall has demonstrated that in 40 to 60 percent of Siobhans blood cells there is a deletion at the tip of the P5 (P5.3) chromosome. The syndrome in which this particular deletion appears is named cri-du-chat because the infant will cry like a cat. I downloaded an .au file from a web site on which there is a mention of this syndrome and the cry is eerily like that of a cat. I first heard the sound in that file because Siobhan never had that distinctive cry. Dr. Crandall theorizes that perhaps Siobhan does not have severe effects because the deletion does not happen in all cells, but ...

Kudos to anyone who can name this little critter. Its a Small-spotted Genet. Heres some info on this little creature, who seems to have a wild cats body and a raccoons tail. Common genets have a slender, cat-like body 17-22 in length and a tail measuring 13-20. The legs are short, with cat-like feet and semi-retractile claws. They have a small head with a pointed muzzle, large oval ears, large eyes, and well-developed whiskers.The fur is dense and soft, and the coat is pale grey, with numerous black markings. The back and flanks are marked with about five rows of black spots, and a long black stripe runs along the middle of the back from the shoulders to the rump. There is also a black stripe on the forehead, and dark patches beneath the eyes, which are offset against the white fur of the chin and throat. The tail is striped, with anything from eight to thirteen rings along its length. Believe it or not, these curious animals were kept as pets and were introduced to the Iberian peninsula ...
Talore very quickly picked up on the sound of me picking up the laser pointer (the metal case usually clicks against my desk), the sound it makes when I turn it on, and the sound it makes when I turn it off. Her reactions are, respectively: perk up and look at me, crouch down and start looking for the dot, and look at me and settle down. Of course by the time I turn it off shes usually stopped really chasing it anyway.. In related news, the $10 worth of watch batteries are getting noticeably dimmer 1 week after installation. Ill probably be buying a new laser pointer soon - one that takes reasonably sized batteries. My other option is to go by radio shack and get a battery holder for 4 probably AA batteries and wire it in, but considering my current laser pointer is part of a nice (or at least decent) pen Ill probably just leave it as is.. ...

A mental disorder characterized by arrested or incomplete mental development, with onset before age 18, leading to significantly below-average intellectual functioning (specifically, IQ below 70), accompanied by deficits in adaptive functioning in such areas as interpersonal communication, self-care, home living, social skills, use of public amenities, self-direction, scholastic or academic performance, work, leisure, health, or safety.

Hi Tamara, Thanks for your interesting comments. Re the mitlas short tail: this feature was not given in Fawcetts own description of it, it only featured in relation to the alleged mitla skin obtained by Ivan Sanderson, which may, or may not, have been an actual mitla skin. Also, I hate to say it but I do worry somewhat about Sandersons extraordinary ability to encounter (at least according to his own claims) living specimens of unknown species (e.g. olitiau, an unidentified giant Cameroon bat; an African living dinosaur; a giant pink salamander on his own farm in North America; a fish that could make itself invisible in Trinidad) and skins or dead specimens of unknown animals(e.g. Bolivian mitla; Mexican ruffed cat; Minnesota iceman). If all of these claims were true, it would make him the most successful cryptozoologist of all time, yet they all share a common fundamental feature - there is no physical evidence to support any of them. Even skins that he claims to have obtained are always ...
We were schooling a few cross-country jumps last Wednesday over at my instructors farm. Robyn wasnt feeling great, so I hacked down to ride with Kelsey, and we started with big conditioning trot sets around the farm. Then Kelsey started schooling a few cross-country coops, and I couldnt possibly resist doing a few myself. We hopped the coop into the paddock, then hopped the little bank-coop going uphill - that was fun! April sprung over it very cat-like, but we took it smoothly and ended up skipping the idea of doing it downhill. We havent graduated to a downhill bank with that degree of steepness yet! I walked back around and into the paddock, and thats where I made the wrong decision. I decided to try the skinny coop sitting right in the middle of the paddock. When I say skinny, I mean a pretty darn narrow coop, without a wing in sight. April has never refused anything I pointed her at, so I didnt figure there would be any issues whatsoever. We picked up a forward trot, took a nice, ...
