A Functional Mutation in HDAC8 Gene as Novel Diagnostic Marker for Cornelia De Lange Syndrome.

Summary of "A Functional Mutation in HDAC8 Gene as Novel Diagnostic Marker for Cornelia De Lange Syndrome."

Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) is a rare genetic disorder classically characterized by distinctive facies, growth retardation, intellectual disability, feeding difficulties, and multiple organ system anomalies. Previously, the diagnosis of CdLS was based mainly on identifying the typical phenotype in patients. However, with the advances in clinical molecular genetic diagnostic techniques, more patients, especially patients with milder phenotypes, are being diagnosed from detecting pathogenic mutation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of techniques that produce a functional MUTATION or an effect on GENE EXPRESSION of a specific gene of interest in order to identify the role or activity of the gene product of that gene.

Vaccines used in conjunction with diagnostic tests to differentiate vaccinated animals from carrier animals. Marker vaccines can be either a subunit or a gene-deleted vaccine.

Mutation process that restores the wild-type PHENOTYPE in an organism possessing a mutationally altered GENOTYPE. The second "suppressor" mutation may be on a different gene, on the same gene but located at a distance from the site of the primary mutation, or in extrachromosomal genes (EXTRACHROMOSOMAL INHERITANCE).

A mutation that results in an increase in a gene's activity or in acquiring a new molecular function or a new pattern of gene expression.

A mutation that causes a decrease in or elimination of a gene product's activity.
