Summary of "Whole genome sequencing and 6-year follow-up of a mother and daughter with frontometaphyseal dysplasia associated with keratitis, xerosis, poikiloderma, and acro-osteolysis: A case report."

Frontometaphyseal dysplasia (FMD) is a dominant X-linked rare disease caused by mutations of FLNA. The distinctive features of FMD include skeletal dysplasia, facial dysmorphism, extremities anomalies, deafness, cleft palate and eye anterior segment anomalies, yet none of the complications, such as acro-osteolysis, keratitis, xerosis or poikiloderma, have been reported in FMD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Techniques to determine the entire sequence of the GENOME of an organism or individual.

Separation systems containing a relatively long-lived parent radionuclide which produces a short-lived daughter in its decay scheme. The daughter can be periodically extracted (milked) by means of an appropriate eluting agent.

Study subjects in COHORT STUDIES whose outcomes are unknown e.g., because they could not or did not wish to attend follow-up visits.(from Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed.)

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.

Young, unweaned mammals. Refers to nursing animals whether nourished by their biological mother, foster mother, or bottle fed.
