    Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and Angelman syndrome (AS) are two clinically distinct neurodevelopmental disorders caused by absence of paternally or maternally expressed imprinted genes on chr15q11.2-q13.3. Three mechanisms are known to be involved in the pathogenesis: microdeletions, uniparental...

    Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and Angelman syndrome (AS) are associated with a loss of function of imprinted genes in the 15q11-q13 region mostly due to deletions or uniparental disomies (UPD). These anomalies usually occur de novo with a very low recurrence risk. However, in rare cases, familial...

    Background: Prader-Willi syndrome (MIM #176270; PWS) is caused by lack of the paternally-derived copies, or their expression, of multiple genes in a 4 Mb region on chromosome 15q11.2. Known mechanisms include large deletions, maternal uniparental disomy or mutations involving the imprinting...

    Microdeletion of chromosome 2q23.1 results in a novel syndrome previously reported in five individuals. Many of the del(2)(q23.1) cases were thought to have other syndromes such as Angelman, Prader–Willi, or Smith–Magenis because of certain overlapping clinical features. We report...

    PURPOSE : Prader - Willi syndrome (PWS) and Angelman syndrome (AS) are distinct developmental disorders caused by absence of paternal or maternal contribution of the chromosome region 15q11-q13, resulting from deletion, uniparental disomy or rare imprinting mutations. The diagnosis of these...
