Silver Russell and Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndromes: Mosaic Distribution of Epigenetic Anomalies

Pham Aurelie , Giabicani Eloise , Steunou Virginie , Netchine Irene , Brioude Frederic

Background: Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism referring to the monoallelic silencing of genes according to their parental origin. Human chromosome 11p15.5 encompasses two imprinted domains (ICR1 and ICR2) playing an important role in controlling fetal and postnatal growth. Genetic (uniparental disomy or gain/loss of function mutations) or epigenetic alterations at the 11p15.5 imprinted region (loss or gain of DNA methylation) are associated with two clinical disord...

Background: GLI2 is a zinc-finger transcription factor of the SHH signaling pathway, expressed during ventral forebrain and pituitary development. GLI2 mutations account for microforms of dominant holoprosencephaly. So far, only 15 unambiguous mutations were found in hypopituitarism –essentially combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD)– frequently associated with holoprosencephaly-like malformations and/or polydactyly.Objective and...
