MAGE-like 2

Magel2, NDNL1, NS7
Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is caused by the loss of expression of imprinted genes in chromosome 15q11-q13 region. Affected individuals exhibit neonatal hypotonia, developmental delay, and childhood-onset obesity. Necdin (NDN), a gene involved in the terminal differentiation of neurons, localizes to this region of the genome and has been implicated as one of the genes responsible for the etiology of PWS. This gene is structurally similar to NDN, is also localized to the PWS chromosomal region, and is paternally imprinted, suggesting a possible role for it in PWS.

Papers on Magel2
Truncating Mutations of MAGEL2, a Gene within the Prader-Willi Locus, Are Responsible for Severe Arthrogryposis.
Melki et al., Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, France. In Am J Hum Genet, Nov 2015
By genetic mapping and whole-exome sequencing in a multiplex family, a heterozygous truncating MAGEL2 mutation leading to frameshift and a premature stop codon (c.1996delC, p.Gln666Serfs∗36) and inherited from the father was identified in the probands.
Progressive postnatal decline in leptin sensitivity of arcuate hypothalamic neurons in the Magel2-null mouse model of Prader-Willi syndrome.
Wevrick et al., Edmonton, Canada. In Hum Mol Genet, Sep 2015
De novo inactivating mutations in one PWS candidate gene, MAGEL2, have been identified in children with features of PWS. Adult mice lacking Magel2 are insensitive to the anorexic effect of leptin treatment, and their hypothalamic pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons fail to depolarize in response to leptin.
An Early Postnatal Oxytocin Treatment Prevents Social and Learning Deficits in Adult Mice Deficient for Magel2, a Gene Involved in Prader-Willi Syndrome and Autism.
Muscatelli et al., Toulouse, France. In Biol Psychiatry, Aug 2015
BACKGROUND: Mutations of MAGEL2 have been reported in patients presenting with autism, and loss of MAGEL2 is also associated with Prader-Willi syndrome, a neurodevelopmental genetic disorder.
The murine norovirus core subgenomic RNA promoter consists of a stable stem-loop that can direct accurate initiation of RNA synthesis.
Goodfellow et al., London, United Kingdom. In J Virol, Feb 2015
We have previously described the presence of an evolutionarily conserved RNA stem-loop structure on the negative-sense RNA, the complementary sequence of which codes for the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (NS7).
Structure determination of Murine Norovirus NS6 proteases with C-terminal extensions designed to probe protease-substrate interactions.
Curry et al., London, United Kingdom. In Peerj, 2014
We report the crystallization and crystal structure determination of inactive mutants of murine norovirus NS6 protease with C-terminal extensions of one, two and four residues from the N-terminus of the adjacent NS7 protein (NS6 1', NS6 2', NS6 4').
Parent-of-origin-specific allelic associations among 106 genomic loci for age at menarche.
Ong et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Nature, 2014
Menarche signals were enriched in imprinted regions, with three loci (DLK1-WDR25, MKRN3-MAGEL2 and KCNK9) demonstrating parent-of-origin-specific associations concordant with known parental expression patterns.
Promoter characterization and functional association with placenta of porcine MAGEL2.
Whitelaw et al., Chongqing, China. In Gene, 2014
MAGEL2 (melanoma antigen-like gene 2) is essential for circadian function, metabolism and reproduction in mammals.

Yuen et al., Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In J Virol, 2014
Their genome size is about 32,000 nucleotides, the largest among all CoVs, as a result of multiple unique open reading frames (NS5a, NS5b, NS5c, NS6, NS7, NS8, NS9, and NS10) between their membrane (M) and nucleocapsid (N) protein genes.
Duplication of the 15q11-q13 region: clinical and genetic study of 30 new cases.
Verloes et al., Paris, France. In Eur J Med Genet, 2014
Duplication of paternally expressed genes MKRN3, MAGEL2 and NDN in two autistic patients without extra material of a neighboring region enhances their likelihood to be genes related to autism.

Based on intensive literature mining, SP4, MAGEL2, SH3RF2, PDE5A and SNAI2 are proposed as novel candidate genes for SC, as they affect growth and testicular size in other animal models.
