Reverse genetic research (positional cloning): locate the affected chromosome, sequence until you find the gene, then deduce the protein sequence ("the predicted protein") and find it, and finally figure out its function. Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and Li-Fraumeni disease were all successfully approached in this way. Human Mental Retardation (MR) is a common and highly heterogeneous pediatric disorder affecting around 3% of the general population; at least X-linked MR (XLMR) conditions have been described, and mutations have been identified in 83 different genes, encoding proteins with a variety of function, such as chromatin remodeling, synaptic.
Linkage and positional cloning identified mutations in autosomal and X-linked genes that increased ovulation and twinning rates in heterozygous carriers. 51,52,53 The mutations responsible were Cited by: 5. X-Linked intellectual disability (XLID) accounts for 5%–10% of intellectual disability in males. Over syndromes, the most common of which is the fragile X syndrome, have been described. A large number of families with nonsyndromal XLID, 95 of which have been regionally mapped, have been described as well. Mutations in X-linked genes have been associated with 81 Cited by:
Most of these obesity syndromes associate mental retardation. It was expected that the syndromic forms of obesity could help unravel novel genes relevant for idiopathic obesity. However, although the genes for several of the syndromic forms have been detected, the relevance of these genes for general obesity is still unclear [45,57].Author: Maria Puiu, Adela Chirita Emandi, Smaranda Arghirescu. the ﬁeld of X-linked mental retardation but many more still await identiﬁcation. Analysis of families where only a single male is affected reveals that the chance of this being due to a single X-linked gene abnormality is signiﬁcantly less than would be expected if the excess of males in the population is entirely due to X-linked disease.

X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) refers to a group of inherited disorders characterised by varying degrees of mental retardation, caused by mutations in various genes present on.

As with most X-linked disorders, males are more heavily affected than females. Females with one affected X chromosome and one normal X chromosome tend to have milder lty: Neurology, medical genetics. Herbst () reviewed 24 pedigrees ascertained in British Columbia; cytogenetic studies were not done.
Based on this study, Herbst and Miller () calculated an incidence of X-linked mental retardation of per 1, live male births and a carrier frequency of per 1, live female births.
Assuming a mutation rate for X-linked loci of 3 to 9 x 10(-5) and a fitness of zero for. At least five MRX genes have been identified by positional cloning, but each accounts for only %% of MRX cases. Here we show that the gene TM4SF2 at Xp is inactivated by the X breakpoint of an X;2 balanced translocation in a patient with by: Mental retardation, as reflected by impaired cognitive function, is the most common cause of handicap in children and young adults.
Its underlying causes are heterogeneous, and include genetic and Cited by: X-linked intellectual disability, Siderius type is caused by mutations in the PHF8 gene.
This gene provides instructions for making a protein that is found in the nucleus of cells, particularly in brain cells before and just after birth.
The PHF8 protein attaches (binds) to complexes called chromatin to regulate the activity (expression) of other genes. Chromatin is the network of DNA and. The genetic basis of non-syndromic mental retardation (NS MR) is complex and heterogeneous. In the past 5 years, several genes causing non-syndromic X linked mental retardation (NS XLMR) have been identified using positional cloning strategies.

X-linked ID accounts for approximately 16% of males with intellectual disability. Linkage analysis on a family with fragile X-linked mental retardation was performed using a Taq 1 restriction fragment length polymorphism detected by a cloned human coagulation factor IX cDNA.
Two affected brothers in this sibship were found to have different factor IX RFLP alleles, indicating a recombinational event occurred between the two by: Summary.
Mutations in X-linked genes account for an excess of males affected with mental retardation. Target genes have recently been identified both for syndromic forms of X-linked mental retardation and in families affected with “nonspecific” forms, where cognitive impairment is the only clinical : J.
Chelly, J. Mandel. Evidence is emerging, from studies of both humans and mice, for a general influence upon intelligence (as indicated by the large number of X-linked mental retardation syndromes).
In addition, there is evidence for relatively specific effects of X-linked genes on social–cognition and emotional by: Five of these six have been found in the past two years, through positional-cloning efforts of mapped X-linked families. The characteristics of the newly identified genes are providing insights into the molecular mechanisms of mental impairment and the Cited by: From NCBI Gene.

Despite advances in medical diagnosis, the cause of MR in many individuals is unknown. The MECP2 gene is mutated in Rett syndrome (RTT; ), a severe neurodevelopmental disorder that almost always occurs in with non-RTT mutations in the MECP2 gene can demonstrate a wide variety of phenotypes, including X-linked mental retardation with spasticity and other variable features, described here, and Lubs X-linked mental retardation.
Genetic syndromes that are known to cause glaucoma as a main ophthalmic manifestation include Armfield X-linked mental retardation syndrome, Lowe oculocerebrorenal syndrome, muscle-eye-brain disease, nail-patella syndrome, Nance-Horan syndrome, and Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome.
Genetic mutations involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders tend to affect. "ZDHHC9 is a novel gene," explains Dr. Raymond. "This gene would not have been predicted to play a role in mental retardation based on the previous genetics work.
It was found only because we were systematically looking at all the genes on the X chromosome irrespective of what they do." X-linked mental retardation is severe.X-linked forms of mental retardation are estimated to cause % of all inherited cases of mental retardation.
The first gene to be identified was FMR1 that causes fragile X syndrome and still remains the commonest single gene abnormality to be by: 1.MEN1 is an autosomal dominant familial syndrome characterized by multiple tumors in the parathyroids, endocrine pancreas, and anterior pituitary.
Using positional cloning, NHGRI scientists identified the gene responsible for MEN1 in MEN1 homologous genes from mouse, frog, zebrafish, and Drosophila have been identified.
