Two different mutations of gli3 gene in two different syndromes
MetadataShow full item record
Two different mutations of GLI3 gene in two different syndromes: Polydactyly is among common extremity abnormalities. Mutations of GLI3 gene have been reported commonly in Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Syndrome (GCPS) and Pallister-Hall Syndrome (PHS). We have determined two different mutations of GLI3 gene in two different cases, one of which is with GCPS and the other one is with PHS. A deletion mutation was detected in the proband with GCPS and his mother. Otherwise, we found that, unlike the previously reported, the mutation c.2437C>T, p.Q813X which was detected in the GLI3 gene caused typical PHS. We are in thought of that our cases will contribute to understanding of phenotypic variability leading to GLI3 mutations.
