Genetic Diagnosis Using Whole Exome Analysis in Two Cases with Malign Infantile Osteopetrosis

Demir Korcan , Nalbantoglu Ozlem , Karaer Kadri , Korkmaz Huseyin Anil , Yildiz Melek , Tunc Selma , Ozkan Behzat

Aim: Osteopetrosis is caused by autosomal mutations occurring in nine genes (TNFRSF11A, TNFSF11, TCIRG1, CLCN7, OSTM1, SNX10, PLEKHM1, CA2, and LRP5). Detecting the aetiology and providing genetic counselling via individual mutation analysis of all these genes is expensive and time consuming. Whole exome sequencing is currently increasingly used given that the cost and the time needed are similar to that of single gene sequencing analysis. Here, two newborns,...

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hypoplasia, a rare cause of childhood primer adrenal insufficiency, is caused by defects in transcription factors involved in the development of adrenal gland. One of them is the NROB1 (DAX1) gene, localized in Xp21.2. DAX1 mutations have been identified that cause X-linked adrenal hypoplasia congenita. Infants affected with X-linked adrenal hypoplasia congenita may present with salt-wasting, micropenis or cry...

Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Antibodies are not Frequent in Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Yildiz Melek , Isleten Figen , Demir Korcan , Celik Nilufer , Korkmaz Huseyin Anil , Tuglu Birsen , Elmas Ozlem Nalbantoglu , Ozkan Behzat

Background: Type 1 diabetes mellitus is characterized by presence of several organ specific autoantibodies. Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibody is a promising marker of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) which is known to coincide with autoimmune diabetes. Presence of these antibodies was not investigated in children with type 1 diabetes.Objective and hypotheses: To evaluate presence of anti-CCP antibodies in children with type 1 diabetes compar...

A Case with Acrodysostosis and Hormone Resistance

Tunc Selma , Demir Korcan , Hazan Filiz , Kirbiyik Ozgur , Soyaltin Eren , Nalbantoglu Ozlem , Yildiz Melek , Korkmaz Huseyin Anil , Ozkan Behzat

Aim: Acrodysostosis is a rare genetic syndrome characterized by small hands and feet with short, stubby fingers and toes, cone shaped epiphyses, broad nasal root, various abnormalities of mandible, skull, and vertebra, short stature, and mental retardation. Because of the hormone resistance that would accompany, acrodysostosis can be confused with pseudohypoparathyroidism. Mutations of PRKAR1A and PDE4D are reported to be responsible for the disease in less t...

Molecular Genetic Analysis of Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (Mody) Genes in Children by Using Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing

Anik Ahmet , Catli Gonul , Tuhan Hale Unver , Abaci Ayhan , Korkmaz Huseyin Anil , Ozkan Behzat , Sari Erkan , Yesilkaya Ediz , Altincik Ayca , Kizildag Sefa , Bober Ece

Background: MODY is an autosomal dominant inherited type of diabetes with significant genetic heterogeneity. To date, there are mutations in more than ten different genes that result in the MODY phenotype and new mutations causing MODY are still being found.Objective and hypotheses: In this study, we aimed to perform a molecular analysis of pediatric MODY patients by next-generation sequencing which enables the simultaneous analysis of multiple genes in ...

Novel CYP27B1 Gene Mutations in Children with Vitamin D-Dependent Rickets Type 1A

Demir Korcan , Kattan Walaa E , Zou Minjing , Durmaz Erdem , BinEssa Huda , Nalbantoglu Ozlem , Al-Rijjal Roua A , Meyer Brian , Ozkan Behzat , Shi Yufei

Background: The CYP27B1 gene encodes 25-hydroxyvitamin D-1α-hydroxylase. Mutations of this gene cause a rare autosomal recessive disorder, vitamin D-dependent rickets type 1A.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate CYP27B1 mutations in children when rickets was associated with normal or high vitamin D levels and low or inappropriately normal calcitriol levels.Method: All coding exons and intron-exon boundari...

Background: Ectopic posterior pituitary gland (EPP) is characterized by an abnormal pituitary stalk and hypoplasia of the anterior hypophysis. The genetic mechanisms involved in the development of EPP remain uncertain.Objective and hypotheses: The aim of this study is to determine whether mutations in the three genes, PROP-1, LHX2, and POU1F1, are associated with the risk for and the characteristics of EPP.Method: In the Endocrinol...
