    Mutations in the WT1 gene can lead to Denys-Drash syndrome or Frasier syndrome and can also cause isolated nephrotic syndrome (NS). Most patients with isolated NS caused by WT1 mutations present as 46, XX phenotypic females. There have been two cases with an onset age younger than 3 years with...

    Despite advances in diagnostic techniques, approximately 10,000 babies with β-thalassemia major are born annually in India. Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), an alternative to prenatal diagnosis, helps in negative selection of affected embryos prior to implantation. Hereby, we report...

    Introduction: Mutations of the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) gene are responsible for VHL disease. This is a familial autosomal-dominant syndrome, predisposing to the development of benign and malignant tumors, including CNS and retinal hemangioblastomas, pheochromocytomas, and clear cell renal...

    Aberrant methylation of CpG islands is a common mechanism for the dysregulation of tumor suppressor genes in a variety of human malignancies. Preproenkephalin ppENK) hypermethylation is recognized in 90% of pancreatic carcinoma (PCa) tissues, but not in normal pancreas. We analyzed ppENK...

    Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndromes (MDSs) are autosomal recessive diseases characterized by a severe decrease in mitochondrial DNA content leading to dysfunction of the affected organ. Autosomal recessive mutations in MPV17 have been identified in the hepatocerebral form of MDS. We describe...
