PURPOSE: To survey families with clinical evidence of autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) for mutations in genes known to cause adRP.

METHODS: Two hundred adRP families, drawn from a cohort of more than 400 potential families, were selected by analysis of pedigrees. Minimum criteria for inclusion in the adRP cohort included either evidence of at least three generations of affected individuals or two generations with evidence of male-to-male transmission. Probands from each ...

PURPOSE: We determined the fraction of families in a well-characterized cohort with a provisional diagnosis of autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) that have disease-causing mutations in the X-linked retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator (RPGR) gene or the retinitis pigmentosa 2 (RP2) gene.

METHODS: Families with a provisional clinical diagnosis of adRP, and a pedigree consistent with adRP but no male-to-male transmission were selected from a cohort of 258 families, and tested ...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency and spectrum of inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase type I (IMPDH1) mutations associated with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (RP), to determine whether mutations in IMPDH1 cause other forms of inherited retinal degeneration, and to analyze IMPDH1 mutations for alterations in enzyme activity and nucleic acid binding.

METHODS: The coding sequence and flanking intron/exon junctions of IMPDH1 were analyzed in 203 ...

BACKGROUND: Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS) is an autosomal recessive disorder associated with an increased predisposition to osteosarcoma. Children with RTS typically present with a characteristic skin rash (poikiloderma), small stature, and skeletal dysplasias. Mutations in the RECQL4 gene, which encodes a RecQ DNA helicase, have been reported in a few RTS patients. We examined whether a predisposition to developing osteosarcoma among an international cohort of RTS patients was ...

It has been well documented that mutations in the same retinal disease gene can result in different clinical phenotypes due to difference in the mutant allele and/or genetic background. To evaluate this, a set of consanguineous patient families with Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) that do not carry mutations in known LCA disease genes was characterized through homozygosity mapping followed by targeted exon/whole-exome sequencing to identify genetic variations. Among these families, a ...

The autosomal recessive disorder primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is caused by unknown developmental defect(s) of the trabecular meshwork and anterior chamber angle of the eye. Homozygosity mapping with a DNA pooling strategy in three large consanguineous Saudi PCG families identified the GLC3A locus on chromosome 2p21 in a region tightly linked to PCG in another population. Formal linkage analysis in 25 Saudi PCG families confirmed both significant linkage to polymorphic markers in ...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to perform a comprehensive survey of all known Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) genes and loci in a collection of 37 consanguineous LCA families from Saudi Arabia.

METHODS: Direct PCR and sequencing were used to screen 13 known LCA genes (GUCY2D, CRX, RPE65, TULP1, AIPL1, CRB1, RPGRIP1, LRAT, RDH12, IMPDH1, CEP290, RD3, LCA5). In addition, families without mutations identified were further screened with STR markers around these 13 known LCA genes ...

Juvenile polyposis syndrome (JPS) is caused by heterozygous mutations in either SMAD4 or BMPR1A. Individuals with JPS due to mutations in SMAD4 are at greater risk to manifest signs of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). HHT is caused by either mutations in SMAD4 or other genes that modulate transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ) signaling. Additional genes in the TGFβ network include FBN1, TGFBR1, and TGFBR2, mutations of which cause either Marfan syndrome (MFS) or Loeys-Dietz ...

Genetic variation in the ABCR (ABCA4) gene has been associated with five distinct retinal phenotypes, including Stargardt disease/fundus flavimaculatus (STGD/FFM), cone-rod dystrophy (CRD), and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Comparative genetic analyses of ABCR variation and diagnostics have been complicated by substantial allelic heterogeneity and by differences in screening methods. To overcome these limitations, we designed a genotyping microarray (gene chip) for ABCR that ...

Achromatopsia (ACHM) or rod monochromacy is an autosomal recessive and genetically heterogeneous retinal disorder. It is characterized by a lack of color discrimination, poor visual acuity, photodysphoria, pendular infantile nystagmus, and abnormal photopic electroretinographic (ERG) recordings with preservation of rod-mediated function. Mutations in three known genes are causative; including genes for the α and β subunits of the cyclic nucleotide-gated cation channel (CNGA3 and CNGB3, ...

Choroideremia (McK30310), an X-linked hereditary retinal dystrophy, causes night-blindness, progressive peripheral visual field loss, and, ultimately, central blindness in affected males. The location of choroideremia on the X chromosome is unknown. We have used restriction fragment length polymorphisms from the X chromosome to determine the regional localization of choroideremia by linkage analysis in families with this disease. One such polymorphic locus, DXYS1, located on the long arm ...

Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a genetically and clinically heterogeneous disorder caused by mutations in at least seven loci (BBS1-7), five of which are cloned (BBS1, BBS2, BBS4, BBS6, and BBS7). Genetic and mutational analyses have indicated that, in some families, a combination of three mutant alleles at two loci (triallelic inheritance) is necessary for pathogenesis. To date, four of the five known BBS loci have been implicated in this mode of oligogenic disease transmission. We present a ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate rates and causes of visual loss among patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis before widespread availability of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).

METHODS: Data from 681 patients with AIDS and newly diagnosed or relapsed CMV retinitis who enrolled in 3 clinical trials conducted by the Studies of Ocular Complications of AIDS (SOCA) Research Group (between 1990 and 1996) were combined to evaluate the ...
