Transfer RNA modification status influences retroviral ribosomal frameshifting. (1/2000)

The possibility of whether tRNAs with and without a highly modified base in their anticodon loop may influence the level of retroviral ribosomal frameshifting was examined. Rabbit reticulocyte lysates were programmed with mRNA encoding UUU or AAC at the frameshift site and the corresponding Phe tRNA with or without the highly modified wyebutoxine (Y) base on the 3' side of its anticodon or Asn tRNA with or without the highly modified queuine (Q) base in the wobble position of its anticodon added. Phe and Asn tRNAs without the Y or Q base, respectively, stimulated the level of frameshifting, suggesting that the frameshift event is influenced by tRNA modification status. In addition, when AAU occurred immediately upstream of UUU as the penultimate frameshift site codon, addition of tRNAAsn without the Q base reduced the stimulatory effect of tRNAPhe without the Y base, whereas addition of tRNAAsn with the Q base did not alter the stimulatory effect. The addition of tRNAAsn without the Q base and tRNAPhe with the Y base inhibited frameshifting. The latter studies suggest an interplay between the tRNAs decoded at the penulimate frameshift and frameshift site codons that is also influenced by tRNA modification status. These data may be intrepreted as indicating that a hypomodified isoacceptor modulates frameshifting in an upward manner when utilized at the frameshift site codon, but modulates frameshifting in a downward manner when utilized at the penultimate frameshift site codon.  (+info)

Mutations in the nebulin gene associated with autosomal recessive nemaline myopathy. (2/2000)

The congenital nemaline myopathies are rare hereditary muscle disorders characterized by the presence in the muscle fibers of nemaline bodies consisting of proteins derived from the Z disc and thin filament. In a single large Australian family with an autosomal dominant form of nemaline myopathy, the disease is caused by a mutation in the alpha-tropomyosin gene TPM3. The typical form of nemaline myopathy is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, the locus of which we previously assigned to chromosome 2q21.2-q22. We show here that mutations in the nebulin gene located within this region are associated with the disease. The nebulin protein is a giant protein found in the thin filaments of striated muscle. A variety of nebulin isoforms are thought to contribute to the molecular diversity of Z discs. We have studied the 3' end of the 20. 8-kb cDNA encoding the Z disc part of the 800-kDa protein and describe six disease-associated mutations in patients from five families of different ethnic origins. In two families with consanguineous parents, the patients were homozygous for point mutations. In one family with nonconsanguineous parents, the affected siblings were compound heterozygotes for two different mutations, and in two further families with one detected mutation each, haplotypes are compatible with compound heterozygosity. Immunofluorescence studies with antibodies specific to the C-terminal region of nebulin indicate that the mutations may cause protein truncation possibly associated with loss of fiber-type diversity, which may be relevant to disease pathogenesis.  (+info)

Mutated epithelial cadherin is associated with increased tumorigenicity and loss of adhesion and of responsiveness to the motogenic trefoil factor 2 in colon carcinoma cells. (3/2000)

Epithelial (E)-cadherin and its associated cytoplasmic proteins (alpha-, beta-, and gamma-catenins) are important mediators of epithelial cell-cell adhesion and intracellular signaling. Much evidence exists suggesting a tumor/invasion suppressor role for E-cadherin, and loss of expression, as well as mutations, has been described in a number of epithelial cancers. To investigate whether E-cadherin gene (CDH1) mutations occur in colorectal cancer, we screened 49 human colon carcinoma cell lines from 43 patients by single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis and direct sequencing. In addition to silent changes, polymorphisms, and intronic variants in a number of the cell lines, we detected frameshift single-base deletions in repeat regions of exon 3 (codons 120 and 126) causing premature truncations at codon 216 in four replication-error-positive (RER+) cell lines (LS174T, HCT116, GP2d, and GP5d) derived from 3 patients. In LS174T such a mutation inevitably contributes to its lack of E-cadherin protein expression and function. Transfection of full-length E-cadherin cDNA into LS174T cells enhanced intercellular adhesion, induced differentiation, retarded proliferation, inhibited tumorigenicity, and restored responsiveness to the migratory effects induced by the motogenic trefoil factor 2 (human spasmolytic polypeptide). These results indicate that, although inactivating E-cadherin mutations occur relatively infrequently in colorectal cancer cell lines overall (3/43 = 7%), they are more common in cells with an RER+ phenotype (3/10 = 30%) and may contribute to the dysfunction of the E-cadherin-catenin-mediated adhesion/signaling system commonly seen in these tumors. These results also indicate that normal E-cadherin-mediated cell adhesion can restore the ability of colonic tumor cells to respond to trefoil factor 2.  (+info)

Mutations in the organic cation/carnitine transporter OCTN2 in primary carnitine deficiency. (4/2000)

Primary carnitine deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder of fatty acid oxidation caused by defective carnitine transport. This disease presents early in life with hypoketotic hypoglycemia or later in life with skeletal myopathy or cardiomyopathy. The gene for this condition maps to 5q31.2-32 and OCTN2, an organic cation/carnitine transporter, also maps to the same chromosomal region. Here we test the causative role of OCTN2 in primary carnitine deficiency by searching for mutations in this gene in affected patients. Fibroblasts from patients with primary carnitine deficiency lacked mediated carnitine transport. Transfection of patient's fibroblasts with the OCTN2 cDNA partially restored carnitine transport. Sequencing of the OCTN2 gene revealed different mutations in two unrelated patients. The first patient was homozygous (and both parents heterozygous) for a single base pair substitution converting the codon for Arg-282 to a STOP codon (R282X). The second patient was a compound heterozygote for a paternal 1-bp insertion producing a STOP codon (Y401X) and a maternal 1-bp deletion that produced a frameshift creating a subsequent STOP codon (458X). These mutations decreased the levels of mature OCTN2 mRNA and resulted in nonfunctional transporters, confirming that defects in the organic cation/carnitine transporter OCTN2 are responsible for primary carnitine deficiency.  (+info)

Infrequent translation of a nonsense codon is sufficient to decrease mRNA level. (5/2000)

In many organisms nonsense mutations decrease the level of mRNA. In the case of mammalian cells, it is still controversial whether translation is required for this nonsense-mediated RNA decrease (NMD). Although previous analyzes have shown that conditions that impede translation termination at nonsense codons also prevent NMD, the residual level of termination was unknown in these experiments. Moreover, the conditions used to impede termination might also have interfered with NMD in other ways. Because of these uncertainties, we have tested the effects of limiting translation of a nonsense codon in a different way, using two mutations in the immunoglobulin mu heavy chain gene. For this purpose we exploited an exceptional nonsense mutation at codon 3, which efficiently terminates translation but nonetheless maintains a high level of mu mRNA. We have shown 1) that translation of Ter462 in the double mutant occurs at only approximately 4% the normal frequency, and 2) that Ter462 in cis with Ter3 can induce NMD. That is, translation of Ter462 at this low (4%) frequency is sufficient to induce NMD.  (+info)

p53 mutations in human cutaneous melanoma correlate with sun exposure but are not always involved in melanomagenesis. (6/2000)

In melanoma, the relationship between sun exposure and the origin of mutations in either the N-ras oncogene or the p53 tumour-suppressor gene is not as clear as in other types of skin cancer. We have previously shown that mutations in the N-ras gene occur more frequently in melanomas originating from sun-exposed body sites, indicating that these mutations are UV induced. To investigate whether sun exposure also affects p53 in melanoma, we analysed 81 melanoma specimens for mutations in the p53 gene. The mutation frequency is higher than thus far reported: 17 specimens (21%) harbour one or more p53 mutations. Strikingly, 17 out of 22 mutations in p53 are of the C:G to TA or CC:GG to TT:AA transitional type, strongly suggesting an aetiology involving UV exposure. Interestingly, the p53 mutation frequency in metastases was much lower than in primary tumours. In the case of metastases, a role for sun exposure was indicated by the finding that the mutations are present exclusively in skin metastases and not in internal metastases. Together with a relatively frequent occurrence of silent third-base pair mutations in primary melanomas, this indicates that the p53 mutations, at least in these tumours, have not contributed to melanomagenesis and may have originated after establishment of the primary tumour.  (+info)

High frequency of germ-line BRCA2 mutations among Hungarian male breast cancer patients without family history. (7/2000)

To determine the contribution of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations to the pathogenesis of male breast cancer in Hungary, the country with the highest male breast cancer mortality rates in continental Europe, a series of 18 male breast cancer patients and three patients with gynecomastia was analyzed for germ-line mutations in both BRCA1 and BRCA2. Although no germ-line BRCA1 mutation was observed, 6 of the 18 male breast cancer cases (33%) carried truncating mutations in the BRCA2 gene. Unexpectedly, none of them reported a family history for breast/ovarian cancer. Four of six truncating mutations were novel, and two mutations were recurrent. Four patients (22%) had a family history of breast/ovarian cancer in at least one first- or second-degree relative; however, no BRCA2 mutation was identified among them. No mutation was identified in either of the genes in the gynecomastias. These results provide evidence for a strong genetic component of male breast cancer in Hungary.  (+info)

How translational accuracy influences reading frame maintenance. (8/2000)

Most missense errors have little effect on protein function, since they only exchange one amino acid for another. However, processivity errors, frameshifting or premature termination result in a synthesis of an incomplete peptide. There may be a connection between missense and processivity errors, since processivity errors now appear to result from a second error occurring after recruitment of an errant aminoacyl-tRNA, either spontaneous dissociation causing premature termination or translational frameshifting. This is clearest in programmed translational frameshifting where the mRNA programs errant reading by a near-cognate tRNA; this error promotes a second frameshifting error (a dual-error model of frameshifting). The same mechanism can explain frameshifting by suppressor tRNAs, even those with expanded anticodon loops. The previous model that suppressor tRNAs induce quadruplet translocation now appears incorrect for most, and perhaps for all of them. We suggest that the 'spontaneous' tRNA-induced frameshifting and 'programmed' mRNA-induced frameshifting use the same mechanism, although the frequency of frameshifting is very different. This new model of frameshifting suggests that the tRNA is not acting as the yardstick to measure out the length of the translocation step. Rather, the translocation of 3 nucleotides may be an inherent feature of the ribosome.  (+info)

An exacerbated genomic instability characterizes hereditary and sporadic gastrointestinal cancer of the microsatellite mutator phenotype (MMP), generating somatic frameshift mutations in genes containing mononucleotide repeats. We have recently shown that approximately 50, 40, and 30% of MMP + colon tumors harbor frameshift mutations in (G)8, (A)8, and (C)8 tracks within the proapoptotic gene BAX and the hMSH3 and hMSH6 DNA mismatch repair genes, respectively. Here we report a higher incidence of frameshift mutations in these 3 genes in a panel of 25 MMP+ gastric adenocarcinomas: 64% in BAX and hMSH3, and 52% in hMSH6. These results support a multiple mutator gene model for the stepwise unfolding of the MMP and further illustrate the importance of the escape from apoptosis in gastrointestinal cancer. The tumor suppressor role played by BAX is also supported by the finding of other somatic BAX mutations, including recurrent missense mutations, not only in gastrointestinal cancer of the MMP but ...

BACKGROUND. Microsatellite instability (MI) is a frequent occurrence in endometrioid carcinoma of the endometrium (EC). Several genes known to contain mononucleotide short tracts in their coding sequences (TGF-β RII, IGFIIR, BAX, hMSH6, and hMSH3) are likely targets for mutations in these tumors. METHODS. DNA from 24 patients with EC and MI was extracted from blood and from fresh-frozen and paraffin embedded tumor tissue. Seven of these patients were found to have metastatic spread to paraaortic lymph nodes. DNA also was studied from 10 patients with EC without MI. RESULTS. Frameshift mutations at coding mononucleotide repeats were detected by single strand conformation polymorphism analysis and DNA sequencing. Frameshift mutations were detected more frequently in BAX (11 of 24 MI positive (+) tumors; 45.8%) than in TGF-β RII (0 of 24 tumors; 0%), IGFIIR (3 of 24 tumors; 12.5%), hMSH3 (6 of 24 tumors; 25%), or hMSH6 (0 of 24 tumors; 0%). The mutations frequently were distributed ...

Five of these mutants also gave rise to nitrosoguanidine-induced suppressors. Two frameshift mutations in the tryptophan operon were found which could be suppressed externally along with certain his frameshift mutations. Most of the externally suppressible mutations ( 12 15) are those tentatively classified as (+1) frameshifts. Forty-eight independent suppressor mutations were ...
The expression of mismatch repair proteins hMSH2 and hMLH1 was investigated in human ovarian cancer cell lines and in biopsies of ovarian carcinomas obtained from 20 patients undergoing surgical operation. By Western blotting analysis hMSH2 protein was detected in all the tumor samples analyzed and in eight out of nine human ovarian cancer cell lines, while hMLH1 was undetectable in four out of 20 ovarian tumors and in five out of nine human ovarian cancer cell lines analyzed. The possible presence of frameshift mutations in the BAX gene, which contains a sequence of eight contiguous guanines in its third exon, was tested in all the samples. All the cell lines presented the normal alleles for the BAX gene while only in one of the tumor samples a heterozygous frameshift mutation was found. The frameshift mutation was associated to a low, almost undetectable, level of BAX protein which was instead present at much higher levels in all the other samples investigated. The results indicate that ...
Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) belongs to a group of genetically and clinically heterogeneous disorders in retinal vascular development. To date, in approximately 50% of patients with FEVR, pathogenic mutations have been detected in FZD4, LRP5, TSPAN12, NDP and ZNF408. In this study, we identified two heterozygous frameshift mutations in RCBTB1 from three Taiwanese cases through exome sequencing. In patient-derived lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs), the protein level of RCBTB1 is approximately half that of unaffected control LCLs, which is indicative of a haploinsufficiency mechanism. By employing transient transfection and reporter assays for the transcriptional activity of β-catenin, we demonstrated that RCBTB1 participates in the Norrin/FZD4 signaling pathway and that knockdown of RCBTB1 by shRNA significantly reduced nuclear accumulation of β-catenin under Norrin and Wnt3a treatments. Furthermore, transgenic fli1:EGFP zebrafish with rcbtb1 knockdown exhibited anomalies in ...
Using a combination of exome sequencing and linkage analysis, we investigated an English family with two affected siblings in their 40s with recessive Charcot-Marie Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2). Compound heterozygous mutations in the immunoglobulin-helicase-mu-binding protein 2 (IGHMBP2) gene were identified. Further sequencing revealed a total of 11 CMT2 families with recessively inherited IGHMBP2 gene mutations. IGHMBP2 mutations usually lead to spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress type 1 (SMARD1), where most infants die before 1 year of age. The individuals with CMT2 described here, have slowly progressive weakness, wasting and sensory loss, with an axonal neuropathy typical of CMT2, but no significant respiratory compromise. Segregating IGHMBP2 mutations in CMT2 were mainly loss-of-function nonsense in the 5 region of the gene in combination with a truncating frameshift, missense, or homozygous frameshift mutations in the last exon. Mutations in CMT2 were predicted to be less ...
Purpose: : We have developed a custom canine retinal cDNA microarray containing ∼4,500 non-redundant elements from a normalized canine retinal cDNA library. To examine the gene expression profile of retinas with inherited photoreceptor degeneration, we have compared the expression profiles of normal and mutant retinas using a pooled brain RNA as a reference tissue; the affected retinas had a frameshift mutation in RPGR ORF15. Methods: : We employed a common reference sample-based experimental design in which mutant and normal retinas at the age of 3, 7 and 16 wks were hybridized in replicates against a reference sample of pooled brain RNA. Tissues were fluorescent labeled using an indirect labeling (3DNA Array 50TM kit). Data from normalized scanned images were analyzed using GeneSpring version 7.2 and SAM version 1.14 with a FDR of 2%. Northern blot analysis was used to confirm expression patterns. Results: : Principal Component Analysis (PCA) showed a significant separation between each ...
Frameshift mutations in protein-coding DNA sequences produce a drastic change in the resulting protein sequence, which prevents classic protein alignment methods from revealing the proteins common origin. Moreover, when a large number of substitutions are additionally involved in the divergence, the homology detection becomes difficult even at the DNA level. We developed a novel method to infer distant homology relations of two proteins, that accounts for frameshift and point mutations that may have affected the coding sequences. We design a dynamic programming alignment algorithm over memory-efficient graph representations of the complete set of putative DNA sequences of each protein, with the goal of determining the two putative DNA sequences which have the best scoring alignment under a powerful scoring system designed to reflect the most probable evolutionary process. Our implementation is freely available at http://bioinfo.lifl.fr/path/ .
We have used site-directed mutagenesis to alter bases in lacZ near the region encoding essential residues in the active site of beta-galactosidase. The altered sequences generate runs of six or seven identical base pairs which create a frameshift, resulting in a Lac- phenotype. Reversion to Lac+ in each strain can occur only by a specific frameshift at these sequences. Monotonous runs of As (or of Ts on the opposite strand) and Gs (or Cs) have been constructed, as has an alternating -C-G- sequence. These specific frameshift indicator strains complement a set of six previously described strains which detect each of the base substitutions. We have examined a variety of mutagens and mutators for their ability to cause reversion to Lac+. Surprisingly, frameshifts are well stimulated at many of these runs by ethyl methanesulfonate, N-methyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine and 2-amino-purine, mutagens not widely known to induce frameshifts. A comparison of ethyl methanesulfonate, ...
Insertions can be particularly hazardous if they occur in an exon, the amino acid coding region of a gene. A frameshift mutation, an alteration in the normal reading frame of a gene, results if the number of inserted nucleotides is not divisible by three, i.e., the number of nucleotides per codon. Frameshift mutations will alter all the amino acids encoded by the gene following the mutation. Usually, insertions and the subsequent frameshift mutation will cause the active translation of the gene to encounter a premature stop codon, resulting in an end to translation and the production of a truncated protein. Transcripts carrying the frameshift mutation may also be degraded through Nonsense-mediated decay during translation, thus not resulting in any protein product. If translated, the truncated proteins frequently are unable to function properly or at all and can possibly result in any number of genetic disorders depending on the gene in which the insertion occurs. Methods to detect DNA ...

Why is the changing of a single base the least serious form of mutation? Addition and deletion mutations generally produce nonfunctional proteins or no protein product at all. They are frameshift mutations. A frameshift mutation alters the reading frame of the DNA sequence and changes all the amino acids in the protein product after the point of mutation. Substitution mutations merely replace one base with another. Because the genetic code is redundant some substitutions will have no effect at all. For example the substitution of a uracil for a cytosine in the codon CCU will have no effect on the protein produced as both CCU and CCC code for proline. Substitutions that replace one amino acid with another vary widely in their effect depending on the substitution and its location in the amino acid chain.. A substitution that produces the stop codon (AUG) is the most serious as it will end an amino acid chain prematurely. Other substitutions can have severe effects if the replacement of an amino ...
The CD19 antigen, expressed on most B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (B-ALL), can be targeted with chimeric antigen receptor-armed T cells (CART-19), but relapses with epitope loss occur in 10% to 20% of pediatric responders. We detected hemizygous deletions spanning the CD19 locus and de novo frameshift and missense mutations in exon 2 of CD19 in some relapse samples. However, we also discovered alternatively spliced CD19 mRNA species, including one lacking exon 2. Pull-down/siRNA experiments identified SRSF3 as a splicing factor involved in exon 2 retention, and its levels were lower in relapsed B-ALL. Using genome editing, we demonstrated that exon 2 skipping bypasses exon 2 mutations in B-ALL cells and allows expression of the N-terminally truncated CD19 variant, which fails to trigger killing by CART-19 but partly rescues defects associated with CD19 loss. Thus, this mechanism of resistance is based on a combination of deleterious mutations and ensuing selection for alternatively ...
Our study addresses the important clinical issue of resistance to CART-19 and establishes a novel combinatorial mechanism by which its cognate epitope could be removed from the cell surface without discarding the target protein entirely. This mechanism involves the clustering of nonsense and missense mutations in exon 2 of CD19. Distributed frameshift mutations would have prevented CD19 protein expression but also left the leukemic cells without the important activator of PI3K and SFTK signaling. In contrast, frameshift mutations clustered in the nonconstitutive exon 2 eliminate full-length CD19, but allow expression of the Δex2 isoform. Not only is this isoform mostly cytosolic and thus hidden from T cells, but expression of its membrane fraction does not trigger killing by CART-19, at least not at physiologic levels. At the same time, it was found to be even more stable than full-length CD19, which could be due to either the presence of a degron within exon 2-encoded amino acid sequence or ...

Antigen processing is not only interesting and important in itself,1 but its been used extensively to tease apart fundamental cell biology - things like protein folding, intracellular proteolysis, protein trafficking, and ER-associated degradation have been identified or studied via antigen processing. There are a bunch of reasons why MHC has been such a Swiss army knife of cell biology. One of the reasons is that MHC can amplify a tiny, tiny signal into a blatant, unmistakable readout.. Thats because cytotoxic T lymphocytes recognize MHC/peptide combinations, recognize it incredibly well, and respond with easily-observed events. CTL can recognize as few as 10 (maybe fewer) specific peptides per cell, even though for every one of those peptide/MHC complexes there are ten thousand other complexes with other peptides, smothering it. And CTL respond by destroying the cell, which gives you a simple, black-and-white, binary outcome.. Its obviously useful to have a highly sensitive2 readout. But ...

To correct the processing problem detected with the 6 plasmid system, we decided to express PR separately from Gag, resulting in the development of a super-split 7 plasmid system. Before constructing this new system, there were three areas of concern that needed to be addressed: (i) What to do with the frameshift, (ii) How to deliver PR in trans without cytotoxicity or loss of infectivity, and (iii) How to minimize the sequence overlap between the packaging signal and Gag, and between Gag and Pol, see (Fig. 3B). In confronting the first concern, we decided to remove the frameshift in order to completely separate Gag from Pol. This was performed using PCR to generate a fragment, between the Nsi I site (found in the CAp24) and the Bgl II site (just after NCp7), which encompasses the area of frameshift at the end of NCp7. This frameshift sequence was changed from AAT TTT TTA GGG to AAC TTC TTA GGG. A second PCR was performed from the Bgl II site (just after NCp7) to the stop codon of P6 in order ...

Mutations of ASXL1, encoding a component of the BAP1 histone H2A deubiquitinase complex, occur in human myeloid neoplasms and are uniformly associated with poor prognosis. However, the precise molecular mechanisms through which ASXL1 mutations alter BAP1 activity and drive leukemogenesis remain unclear. Here we demonstrate that cancer-associated frameshift mutations in ASXL1, which were originally proposed to act as destabilizing loss-of-function mutations, in fact encode stable truncated gain-of-function proteins. Truncated ASXL1 increases BAP1 protein stability, enhances BAP1 recruitment to chromatin and promotes the expression of a pro-leukemic transcriptional signature. Through a biochemical screen, we identified BAP1 catalytic inhibitors that inhibit truncated-ASXL1-driven leukemic gene expression and impair tumor progression in vivo. This study represents a breakthrough in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of ASXL1 mutations in leukemia pathogenesis and identifies small-molecular

Two research groups at ARC Institute and MIT Institute are physically isolated, but both maintain colonies of the same inbred line that are used by collaborators in the institutes for research validation. If the two colonies have been recently collected from the same source there should be no problem and the researchers can continue to use the mice with confidence that their research models are genetically identical. Eg: ARC using C57BL/6J MIT using C57BL/6J Over the next couple of years these mice will be subject to a range of natural mutational effects that could lead to genetic divergence. These would include point mutations (expected to occur once every 107-109 nucleotide pairs per generation) that involve the substitution of a single base pair, and frameshift mutations which involve the addition or deletion of base pair(s) leading to a change in the subsequent DNA sequence. Although, with an estimated 95% of the mouse genome containing non-coding DNA the majority of these mutations are ...

Perilipin 1 is a lipid droplet coat protein predominantly expressed in adipocytes, where it inhibits basal and facilitates stimulated lipolysis. Loss-of-function mutations in the PLIN1 gene were recently reported in patients with a novel subtype of familial partial lipodystrophy, designated as FPLD4. We now report the identification and characterization of a novel heterozygous frameshift mutation affecting the carboxy-terminus (439fs) of perilipin 1 in two unrelated families. The mutation cosegregated with a similar phenotype including partial lipodystrophy, severe insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, extreme hypertriglyceridemia, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in both families. Poor metabolic control despite maximal medical therapy prompted two patients to undergo bariatric surgery, with remarkably beneficial consequences. Functional studies indicated that expression levels of the mutant protein were lower than wild-type protein, and in stably transfected preadipocytes the mutant protein was
An increasing number of genes involved in chromatin structure and epigenetic regulation has been implicated in a variety of developmental disorders, often including intellectual disability. By trio exome sequencing and subsequent mutational screening we now identified two de novo frameshift mutations and one de novo missense mutation in CTCF in individuals with intellectual disability, microcephaly, and growth retardation. Furthermore, an individual with a larger deletion including CTCF was identified. CTCF (CCCTC-binding factor) is one of the most important chromatin organizers in vertebrates and is involved in various chromatin regulation processes such as higher order of chromatin organization, enhancer function, and maintenance of three-dimensional chromatin structure. Transcriptome analyses in all three individuals with point mutations revealed deregulation of genes involved in signal transduction and emphasized the role of CTCF in enhancer-driven expression of genes. Our findings indicate ...
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 11 (SCA11) is rare and has previously been described in four families worldwide. We report a Danish family with onset of symptoms in early childhood and affected family members in two generations. The proband, a Danish female born in 1968, and family members were examined. Exome sequencing was performed and a movement disorders gene panel consisting of approximately 200 genes was used for filtering, while Sanger sequencing was used for subsequent testing for the mutation in the family. Onset of symptoms in affected family members was in early childhood. A novel frameshift mutation (c.1205_1207delinsA) in the tau-tubulin kinase 2 encoding gene, TTBK2, was identified, which was compatible with a diagnosis of SCA11. The mutation was subsequently identified in her two affected sons but not in the unaffected parents or her unaffected brother. This report further delineates the phenotypic spectrum of the rare SCA11 disease. In contrast to previously reported cases, onset ...
We demonstrate genetic and biochemical data in a family with a novel frameshift mutation in the ADCK3 gene and with the phenotype of a complex ataxia-myoclonus syndrome, CoQ10 deficiency and abnormal MRC enzyme activities. One of the unusual features of this family is an onset in the second decade, which is later than most previously reported cases with ADCK3 mutations. Also, this family was affected with marked myoclonic-dystonic movements but relatively mild cerebellar ataxia, suggesting a wide phenotypic spectrum of ADCK3 mutations.. To date, autosomal recessive mutations in ADCK3 have only been identified in 22 patients from 13 families, and these mutations have been associated with clinically heterogeneous diseases.9 Patients usually present with a complex neurological phenotype, with cerebellar ataxia as the predominant manifestation.8-11 In this family, cerebellar symptoms were relatively mild compared to the disabling myoclonus and involuntary movements which affected both siblings. ...
Herein we present experiments that suggest an effect of mesalazine on the occurrence of frameshift mutations at a (CA)13 microsatellite, which is quite different from the chemopreventive effects of aspirin despite the structural similarities. The findings have been generated in a flow cytometry-based assay using two near isogenic human colorectal cell lines. HCT116 cells originate from a microsatellite instability-positive colorectal cancer from a hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer patient and do not express hMLH1 ( 12). In HCT116+chr3, the hypermutable phenotype of HCT116 cells has been reversed through transfer of chromosome 3 that encodes a wild-type hMLH1 gene ( 10). In fact, the mutation rate at the (CA)13 microsatellite in HCT116+chr3 cells is 30 times lower than in HCT116 ( 9). When transferring our experimental finding from these cell lines into models of human cancer, we would expect that mesalazine could improve replication fidelity and thereby reduce the tempo and frequency of ...
Inherited disorders of elastic tissue represent a complex and heterogeneous group of diseases, characterized often by sagging skin and occasionally by life-threatening visceral complications. In the present study, we report on an autosomal-recessive disorder that we have termed MACS syndrome (macrocephaly, alopecia, cutis laxa, and scoliosis). The disorder was mapped to chromosome 20p11.21-p11.23, and a homozygous frameshift mutation in RIN2 was found to segregate with the disease phenotype in a large consanguineous kindred. The mutation identified results in decreased expression of RIN2, a ubiquitously expressed protein that interacts with Rab5 and is involved in the regulation of endocytic trafficking. RIN2 deficiency was found to be associated with paucity of dermal micro-fibrils and deficiency of fibulin-5, which may underlie the abnormal skin phenotype displayed by the patients.. ...
Inherited adrenal and gonadal 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3 beta-HSD) deficiency is most likely caused by a mutation of the type II 3 beta-HSD gene. Cloning and sequencing of exons I-II, III, and IV and portions of the adjacent introns, amplified by polymerase chain reaction using primers specific for the type II gene, in one male pseudohermaphrodite with salt-wasting classic 3 beta-HSD deficiency congenital adrenal hyperplasia revealed the same mutation in all nine clones of exon IV consisting of a missense mutation at codon 248 [GTC(Val)--,AAC(Asn)] followed by a frameshift mutation at codon 249 [CGA (Arg)--,TA], resulting in a stop codon TAG, and normal sequences of exon I-II and III and the adjacent portions of introns ...
The role of leptin was first discovered in studies of severely obese ob/ob mice, which harbor mutations in the LEP gene resulting in a complete lack of circulating leptin (2). Close to ob/ob mice, less than 20 individuals carrying a mutation in the LEP gene have been identified since 1997.. Firstly, two severely obese cousins from a highly consanguineous family of Pakistani origin were reported with undetectable serum leptin levels (,1 ng/ml). They carried a homozygous frameshift mutation in the LEP gene (Δ133G), which resulted in truncated and not secreted protein (3). Since then six affected individuals from four other unrelated families were identified homozygous for the same mutation (4,5). In addition, a large Turkish family (5 subjects) carrying a homozygous missense mutation (C105T) and an obese Egyptian patient with a N103K substitution were described (6-8).. Finally, one 14-y old Austrian child carrying a new homozygous mutation in LEP gene (L72S) was recently described leading also to ...
Despite satisfying our criteria (MAF,0.2%, CADD,11), the variants in 12 families did not meet the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics variant interpretation categories 1, 2 or 3.39 In 8 of these 12 families, one of the RDVs is a splice variant beyond±2 basepairs from the intron-exon junction, for which the functional effect on splicing has not been assessed. In 4/12 families, one RDV is a synonymous variant whose functional effect has not been evaluated. Therefore, we list these families separately in online supplementary table S5 and excluded them from gene-phenotype analyses.. In addition, we identified five families with pairs of RDVs in each of two genes (see online supplementary table S6). In 3/5, the variants in one gene appeared much more likely to be causal than the variants in the second gene (eg, a homozygous frameshift mutation in C5ORF42 vs two missense variants in CSPP1, which harbours exclusively truncating mutations in our cohort). In these three families, the more ...
Introduction: Approximately 70% of familial breast cancer susceptibility remains unexplained. Over the past decade, several genes apart from BRCA1 & BRCA2 have been identified as breast cancer susceptibility genes including the genes RAD51C, BRIP1, PALB2, ATM, CHEK2. While these genes were identified using a candidate gene approach, more recently, XRCC2, FANCC & BLM have all been identified using an exome sequencing approach. A common characteristic of all of these genes is their involvement in the Homologous Recombination (HR) DNA repair pathway. Methods and Results: We performed exome sequencing of families with a strong history of breast cancer in at least two affected family members and identified a deleterious frameshift mutation in the NEIL1 gene (c.572insC; p.P192Afs*51). By screening familial cases & population matched controls we identified three distinct frameshift mutations in 10 out of 950 families compared with eight out of 3165 controls (OR = 4.16, 95%1 CI = 1.47 - 12.17, P = ...
Primary immunodeficiencies are often monogenic disorders characterized by vulnerability to specific infectious pathogens. Here, we performed whole-exome sequencing of a patient with disseminated Mycobacterium abscessus, Streptococcus viridians bacteremia, and cytomegalovirus (CMV) viremia and identified mutations in 2 genes that regulate distinct IFN pathways. The patient had a homozygous frameshift deletion in IFNGR2, which encodes the signal transducing chain of the IFN-γ receptor, that resulted in minimal protein expression and abolished downstream signaling. The patient also harbored a homozygous deletion in IFNAR1 (IFNAR1*557Gluext*46), which encodes the IFN-α receptor signaling subunit. The IFNAR1*557Gluext*46 resulted in replacement of the stop codon with 46 additional codons at the C-terminus. The level of IFNAR1*557Gluext*46 mutant protein expressed in patient fibroblasts was comparable to levels of WT IFNAR1 in control fibroblasts. IFN-α-induced signaling was impaired in the patient ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Recombinant tagging system using ribosomal frameshifting to monitor protein expression. AU - Han, Se Jong. AU - Cho, Sayeon. AU - Lowehhaupt, Ky. AU - Park, So Young. AU - Sim, Sang Jun. AU - Kim, Yang Gyun. PY - 2013/3/1. Y1 - 2013/3/1. N2 - For rapid and accurate quantitation of recombinant proteins during expression and after purification, we introduce a new tagging strategy that expresses both target proteins and limitedly tagged target proteins together in a single cell at a constant ratio by utilizing cis-elements of programmed -1 ribosomal frameshifting (-1RFS) as an embedded device. -1RFS is an alternative reading mechanism that effectively controls protein expression by many viruses. When a target gene is fused to the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) gene with a -1RFS element implanted between them, the unfused target and the target-GFP fusion proteins are expressed at a fixed ratio. The expression ratio between these two protein products is adjustable simply by ...
Emily Today I got the sequencing results back from malE31 C2. The good news is that it is now biobricked. Unfortunately it looks like the primer that was sued has actually introduced a single base pair deletion mutation near the end of the gene. Three amino acids have been deleted and six other amino acids have been changed. Fortunately however, there is still a STOP codon in the mutated version. Because of the presence of this STOP codon amnd the fact that the mutation is near the end of the gene, we have decided to continue by trying to construct this biobricked gene into our system. We will also however restart biobricking it with another primer. This afternoon we had a brief team meeting to see where we are in the project. After the meeting I transformed my I0500-I13504 and I0500-I13507 constructs into TOP10 E. Coli cells. I then plated these on A, K and AK plates and left for overnight growth. Henry will take these plates out of the incubator on Saturday morning. I also set up a restriction ...
Discussion. In this study, we describe the biochemical consequences of four mutations found in the GUCY2D gene from three patients with typical features of LCA: poor fixation noted during the first six months of life, sensory nystagmus, poor pupillary light reflex, essentially normal retinal appearance, with mild vascular attenuation, hyperopic refractions, abolished ERGs (performed early in the disease process), stable visual evolution, and normal sighted parents. In the first patient, a missense mutation was identified that results in a substitution of L954P in the catalytic domain of the corresponding protein, RetGC-1. This was found in compound heterozygous state with a S981 1 bp del frameshift mutation, which was not tested in our experiments. The frameshift would result in a truncated version of RetGC-1, eliminating critical amino acid residues necessary for catalytic activity [37,38]. In a second patient, a missense mutation causing the substitution C105Y in the extracellular domain of ...
PAX9, a paired domain transcription factor, has important functions in craniofacial and limb development. Heterozygous mutations of PAX9, including deletion, nonsense, or frameshift mutations that lead to a premature stop codon, and missense mutations, were previously shown to be associated with autosomal dominant oligodontia. Here, we report a novel missense mutation that lies in the highly conserved paired domain of PAX9 and that is associated with non-syndromic oligodontia in one family. The mutation, 83G-->C, is predicted to result in the substitution of arginine by proline (R28P) in the N-terminal subdomain of PAX9 paired domain. To rule out the possibility that this substitution is a rare polymorphism and to test whether the predicted amino acid substitution disrupts protein-DNA binding, we analyzed the binding of wild-type and mutant PAX9 paired domain to double-stranded DNA targets. The R28P mutation dramatically reduces DNA binding of the PAX9 paired domain and supports the hypothesis ...
Ana Charrua ,ana_charrua at yahoo.com, wrote in message news:94062i$91u$1 at venus.telepac.pt... , Is it possible that a mutation could change the phenotype of O to A or , B? , This is theoretically possible but, in reality, the answer is no. The other way is much more likely, going from A or B to O. The details are given in http://www.bioc.aecom.yu.edu/bgmut/abo.htm Essentially, the ABO gene codes for an enzyme that catalyzes the last in the series of reactions producing the glycoproteins that are the blood type antigens. The O gene produces a non-functional enzyme. Most of the mutations that produce this allele start as single nucleotide deletions from the functional gene. It is theoretically possible to have a mutation producing a single nucleotide insertion of exactly the right type at exactly the right location, but it is so unlikely as to be virtually impossible. In fact, most people with type O allele have other mutations in this gene besides the deletion, so converting back to a ...
Based on these observations and the results presented here, we propose a model for the functional diversification of duplicated members of transcription factor families (Fig. 5). After duplication of an ancestral gene X, one of the copies (Y) may accumulate mutations in the C-terminus, while retaining features such as DNA binding, essential for its function as a transcription factor, in the upstream coding regions. Apart from in frame insertions/deletions and single nucleotide substitutions, mutations in the coding sequence at the 3 end will also induce frameshifts, as such masking the ancestral origin of the motif at the protein level. While most frameshift mutations will be deleterious for the existing function, in specific cases they may yield novel functional C-terminal motifs. The three cases we have described are perfect examples of such a neo-functionalization process. This widens the emerging view that plant transcription factors evolve mainly by changes in cis-regulatory elements that ...
