...h were assessed by whole exome sequencing and cosegregation analysis. We identified a previously described mutation c.4802C>G (p.S1601*) in the ASPM gene in both families. This study further underlines that mutations in the ASPM gene are a common cause for microcephaly in the Pakistani population and updates our knowledge regarding the frequent involvement of ASPM in microcephaly.

...nkage analysis and whole exome sequencing revealed a novel homozygous nonsense mutation (c.204T>G) in BICD2 gene which was predicted to yield a truncated protein product (p. Glu68*). This is first nonsense mutation being reported causing HSP with complex clinical features and early onset. Further, functional exploration will be required for genotype phenotype correlation.

...ent (HBD) mapping, whole exome sequencing (for mutation identification) and Sanger sequencing (for variant segregation). Homozygosity analysis revealed a 1.2 Mb HBD region on chromosome 15 between markers rs4778147 to rs8036234 (chr15:27752745-28962131bp), which harbors the previously reported OCA2 gene. The subsequent whole exome sequencing identified a novel splice site defect at spice donor site, wherein G was replaced by...

... in present study. Whole exome sequencing (WES) approach was adopted to identify causative agent of dwarfism that reveled a previously reported a missense mutation (c.2011 A > G, p.Ser 671Pro) in exon 3 of COL10A1 gene. Sanger sequencing confirmed these mutations in all enrolled subjects and mutation followed Mendalian pattern of inheritance. Multiple sequence alignment by Clustal Omega revealed that domain of COL10A1 containing mutatio...

...s were identified. Whole exome sequencing was carried out to identify the mutation in putative gene/s. The data was arranged, and MAN2B1 was selected for the DNA sequencing. Protein homology was analyzed by the pymol tool to predict the effect on the mutant protein. A novel missense mutation c. 2710A>T; p.904Tyr>Ser was detected, and co-segregation analysis was established in the complex neurological family. The pymol analysis detected the loss of hydrog...

...tracture disorder. Whole-exome sequencing was performed for four participants. Variants were filtered based on homozygosity in the three patients and heterozygosity in the obligate carrier (mother), predicted effect of variants on the encoded protein, and their frequencies in public databases. Sanger sequencing was performed to explore the segregation of the variant with the phenotype. All patients had congenital limb contractures. These included camptodactyly...
