Haplotype analysis of oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) locus in Yakutia

Haplotype analysis of oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) locus in Yakutia Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a hereditary neuromuscular disease with autosomal dominant and rarely with autosomal recessive inheritance types. This study included 50 patients with a clinical diagnosis of OPMD, 23 asymptomatic carriers of the mutation from 45 unrelated families, and 56 healthy relatives, as well as population samples of four ethnic groups of Yakutia: Yakuts, Evens, Evenks, Yukaghirs. It was found that the cause of OPMD development in all investigated families is the same increase in GCN repeats to 14 copies in the PABPN1 gene. The molecular structure of the (GCN)14 mutant allele is (GCG)10(GCA)3GCG. The genetic variability of ten SNPs at the OPMD locus was studied in patient families and population samples. The haplotypes of OPMD were determined by a segregation analysis technique and using the EM algorithm in the groups of patients, mutation carriers, and population samples. Only one haplotype of four SNPs (ATCG) linked with the (GCN)14 mutant allele was found in Yakuts and Russian patients and OPMD mutation carriers. Probably, this indicates the accumulation of mutations as a result of the founder effect. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is a hereditary neuromuscular disease with autosomal dominant and rarely with autosomal recessive inheritance types. This study included 50 patients with a clinical diagnosis of OPMD, 23 asymptomatic carriers of the mutation from 45 unrelated families, and 56 healthy relatives, as well as population samples of four ethnic groups of Yakutia: Yakuts, Evens, Evenks, Yukaghirs. It was found that the cause of OPMD development in all investigated families is the same increase in GCN repeats to 14 copies in the PABPN1 gene. The molecular structure of the (GCN)14 mutant allele is (GCG)10(GCA)3GCG. The genetic variability of ten SNPs at the OPMD locus was studied in patient families and population samples. The haplotypes of OPMD were determined by a segregation analysis technique and using the EM algorithm in the groups of patients, mutation carriers, and population samples. Only one haplotype of four SNPs (ATCG) linked with the (GCN)14 mutant allele was found in Yakuts and Russian patients and OPMD mutation carriers. Probably, this indicates the accumulation of mutations as a result of the founder effect.
