Redefining the MED13L syndrome.
New York City, United States. In Eur J Hum Genet, Oct 2015
Congenital cardiac and neurodevelopmental deficits have been recently linked to the mediator complex subunit 13-like protein MED13L, a subunit of the CDK8-associated mediator complex that functions in transcriptional regulation through DNA-binding transcription factors and RNA polymerase II.
Genomic structural variants are linked with intellectual disability.
Moscow, Russia. In J Neural Transm, Sep 2015
19 out of 21 ID cases carried segmental CNV and 20 of 21 them displayed ROH segments with mean size lengths for ID cases 2512 kb (500-6,472 kb) and for healthy control 682 kb (531-986 kb), including the genes MED13L, HRK, FBXW8, TESC, CDK2AP1 and SBNO1.
Efficient strategy for the molecular diagnosis of intellectual disability using targeted high-throughput sequencing.
Illkirch-Graffenstaden, France. In J Med Genet, 2014
RESULTS: We identified 26 causative mutations: 16 in X-linked genes (ATRX, CUL4B, DMD, FMR1, HCFC1, IL1RAPL1, IQSEC2, KDM5C, MAOA, MECP2, SLC9A6, SLC16A2, PHF8) and 10 de novo in autosomal-dominant genes (DYRK1A, GRIN1, MED13L, TCF4, RAI1, SHANK3, SLC2A1, SYNGAP1).
De novo mutations in moderate or severe intellectual disability.
Montréal, Canada. In Plos Genet, 2014
A total of 12 likely pathogenic DNMs were identified in genes previously associated with ID (ARID1B, CHD2, FOXG1, GABRB3, GATAD2B, GRIN2B, MBD5, MED13L, SETBP1, TBR1, TCF4, WDR45), resulting in a diagnostic yield of ∼29%.
