7 Mb de novo deletion within 8q21 in a patient with distal arthrogryposis type 2B (DA2B)


Hofmann, K; Becker, Jutta; Heller, R; Boute, O; Andrieux, J; Hoyer, J; Ekici, A B; Reis, A; Rauch, A (2011). 7 Mb de novo deletion within 8q21 in a patient with distal arthrogryposis type 2B (DA2B). European Journal of Medical Genetics, 54(5):e495-e500.

Abstract

We report on a 7 11/12 years old male patient with normal mental development, club feet, ulnar deviation and mild camptodactyly as well as facial dysmorphism including high forehead, small mouth, broad nasal bridge, epicanthus, high palate, brachycephalus, short neck, and dysplastic ears consistent with distal arthrogryposis type 2B (DA2B). Mutational analysis of the genes MYH3, TNNI2, TNNT3 and TPM2, known to cause DA2B revealed no apparent disease causing mutation. Molecular karyotyping using a 250 K SNP array revealed a heterozygous de novo 7 Mb deletion of 8q21.11-8q21.13 containing 23 genes. Prioritisation of possible candidate genes using the bioinformatics tool ENDEAVOUR revealed three favoured genes, HEY1, FABP5 and FABP4 as potential causes of the phenotype. We propose that the 8q21 region contains a further locus which contributes to the genetically heterogeneous DA2B.
