    Background/Aim. Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare hereditary disease in a heterogeneous group of syndromes, so-called chromosome breakage disorders. Specific hypersensitivity of its cells to chemical agents, such as diepoxybutane (DEB), was used as a part of screening among patients with clinical...

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a genetic disease, either autosomal or X-linked recessive, which presents with pancytopenia, congenital malformations and predisposition to cancer. There are 15 known complementation groups that correspond to defects in 15 different genes involved in the pathway FA/BRCA...

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic instability syndrome characterized by developmental defects, bonemarrow failure, and a high cancer risk. Fifteen genetic subtypes have been distinguished. The majority of patients (≈85%) belong to the subtypes A (≈60%), C (≈15%) or G...

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a recessively inherited disease characterized by multiple symptoms including growth retardation, skeletal abnormalities, and bone marrow failure. The FA diagnosis is complicated due to the fact that the clinical manifestations are both diverse and variable. A chromosomal...

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disorder associated with a high frequency of hematological abnormalities and congenital anomalies. Based on multilateral efforts from basic scientists and clinicians, significant advances in our knowledge of FA have been made in recent years. Here we review...

    Fanconi anemia (FA) is an inherited disorder characterized by malformations, marrow failure, and predisposition to cancer. Birth defects and laboratory features are characteristic and helpful in diagnosis, when present. Chromosome fragility is pathognomonic in the diagnosis. However, in some...

    We describe a patient with Fanconi-Bickel syndrome diagnosed by clinical manifestations and the identification of a novel mutation in the GLUT 2 gene. She was initially diagnosed with neonatal diabetes mellitus due to hyperglycaemia and glycosuria at 3 days of life. In addition, newborn...

    The Fanconi anemia (FA) proteins are involved in a signaling network that assures the safeguard of chromosomes. To understand the function of FA proteins in cellular division events, we investigated the interaction between Stathmin-1 (STMN1) and the FA group C (FANCC) protein. STMN1 is a...
