CNTN6 copy number variations in 14 patients: a possible candidate gene for neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders.

J Neurodev Disord. 2015 Aug 6 Authors Hu J, Liao J, Sathanoori M, Kochmar S, Sebastian J, Yatsenko SA, Surti U. Abstract Neurodevelopmental disorders are impairments of brain function that affect emotion, learning, and memory. Copy number variations of contactin genes (CNTNs), including CNTN3, CNTN4, CNTN5, and CNTN6, have been suggested to be associated with these disorders. However, phenotypes have been […]

Xq25 duplication: the crucial role of the STAG2 gene in this novel human cohesinopathy

Clinical Genet. 2015 Feb 11 Authors Leroy C, Jacquemont ML, Doray B, Lamblin D, Cormier-Daire V, Philippe A, Nusbaum S, Patrat C, Steffann J, Colleaux L, Vekemans M, Romana S, Turleau C,Malan V. Abstract The Xq25 duplications syndrome has recently emerged as a distinct clinical entity. We report here on six new patients belonging to two unrelated families and harbouring an Xq25 microduplication detected by array CGH. Similarly […]

Mol Cytogenet. 2014 Jan 28 Authors Novara F1, Simonati A, Sicca F, Battini R, Fiori S, Contaldo A, Criscuolo L, Zuffardi O, Ciccone R. Abstract BACKGROUND: Xq28 duplications, including MECP2 (methyl CpG-binding protein 2; OMIM 300005), have been identified in approximately 140 male patients presenting with hypotonia, severe developmental delay/intellectual disability, limited or absent speech and ambulation, and recurrent respiratory infections. Female patients with […]
