Newly recognized Mendelian disorders with rheumatic manifestations.
Bethesda, United States. In Curr Opin Rheumatol, 30 Sep 2015
Mutations in ADA2, TRNT1 and COPA, AP1S3, and TNFRSF11A cause complex syndromes; loss-of-function mutations in enzymes and molecules are linked to the generation of 'cellular stress' and the release of inflammatory mediators that likely cause the inflammatory disease manifestations.
Genetics of vasculitis.
Johannesburg, South Africa. In Curr Opin Rheumatol, Jan 2015
These associations include ERAP1, CCR1-CCR3, STAT4, KLRC4, GIMAP4, and TNFAIP3 in Behçet's disease; BLK and CD40 in Kawasaki disease; SERPINA1 and SEMA6A in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody associated vasculitides; IL12B and FCGR2A/ FCGR2A in Takayasu arteritis; and CECR1 in a newly defined vascular inflammatory syndrome associated with adenosine deaminase (ADA2) deficiency.
Early-onset stroke and vasculopathy associated with mutations in ADA2.
Aş Şanamayn, Syria. In N Engl J Med, Apr 2014
RESULTS: All nine patients carried recessively inherited mutations in CECR1 (cat eye syndrome chromosome region, candidate 1), encoding adenosine deaminase 2 (ADA2), that were predicted to be deleterious; these mutations were rare or absent in healthy controls.
