Whole exome sequencing unravels disease-causing genes in consanguineous families in Qatar.
Montréal, Canada. In Clin Genet, 2014
Using WES approach, we identified the definitive disease-causing mutations in four families: (i) a novel nonsense homozygous (c.1034C>G) in PHKG2 causing glycogen storage disease type 9C (GSD9C) in a male with initial diagnosis of GSD3; (ii) a novel homozygous 1-bp deletion (c.915del) in NSUN2 in a male proband with Noonan-like syndrome; (iii) a homozygous SNV (c.1598C>G) in exon 11 of IDUA causing Hurler syndrome in a female proband with unknown clinical diagnosis; (iv) a de novo known splicing mutation (c.1645+1G>A) in PHEX in a female proband with initial diagnosis of autosomal recessive hypophosphatemic rickets.
Clinical application of massively parallel sequencing in the molecular diagnosis of glycogen storage diseases of genetically heterogeneous origin.
Houston, United States. In Genet Med, 2013
METHODS: A massively parallel sequencing test was developed for simultaneous sequencing of 16 genes known to cause muscle and liver forms of glycogen storage diseases: GYS2, GYS1, G6PC, SLC37A4, GAA, AGL, GBE1, PYGM, PYGL, PFKM, PHKA2, PHKB, PHKG2, PHKA1, PGAM2, and PGM1.
Molecular markers of endometrial carcinoma detected in uterine aspirates.
Barcelona, Spain. In Int J Cancer, 2011
We identified ACAA1, AP1M2, CGN, DDR1, EPS8L2, FASTKD1, GMIP, IKBKE, P2RX4, P4HB, PHKG2, PPFIBP2, PPP1R16A, RASSF7, RNF183, SIRT6, TJP3, EFEMP2, SOCS2 and DCN as differentially expressed in ECs.
Phosphorylase Kinase Deficiency
Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2011
Mutations in PHKA1, encoding subunit α, cause the rare X-linked disorder muscle PhK deficiency; mutations in PHKA2, also encoding subunit α, cause the most common form, liver PhK deficiency (X-linked liver glycogenosis); mutations in PHKB, encoding subunit β, cause autosomal recessive PhK deficiency in both liver and muscle; and mutations in PHKG2, encoding subunit γ, cause autosomal recessive liver PhK deficiency.
