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: IGF1R is a keystone of foetal growth regulation by mediating the effects of both IGF-I and IGF-II. Recently the first clinical cohort of patients carrying an IGF1R defect has been reported from which a clinical score was established for diagnosis. Since no external validation of this score is available we assessed it in a large cohort of patients with identified IGF1R defects. Furthermore we aim at setting-up a functional test to ...

Background: Loss of imprinting has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several human diseases. Monogenic causes of central precocious puberty (CPP) were identified in families with loss-of-function mutations in two paternally expressed imprinted genes: Makorin zinc finger 3 (MKRN3) and Delta-like 1 homolog (DLK1). The role of imprinting defects in CPP has not been described so far.Objective: To inves...
