Evidence for Loss Phenotypes

Evidence for loss of function phenotype
PubMed ID Description
15168106 Gene was disrupted by translocation in a patient with Cornelia de Lange syndrome. However mutation screening of NAALADL2 in a panel of CdLS patient DNA samples failed to identify patient-specific mutations.
22106001 A 2.2?Mb deletion at 3q26.3-3q26.32-encompassing the terminal end of NLGN1 and the entire NAALADL2 gene-detected by genomic microarray, and confirmed by FISH and real-time quantitative PCR. The same size deletion was subsequently found in her healthy, asymptomatic, adult mother.

Evidence for Triplosenstive Phenotype

NOTE:The loss of function score should be used to evaluate deletions, and the triplosensitivity score should be used to evaluated duplications. CNVs encompassing more than one gene must be evaluated in their totality (e.g. overall size, gain vs. loss, presence of other genes, etc). The rating of a single gene within the CNV should not necessarily be the only criteria by which one defines a clinical interpretation. Individual interpretations must take into account the phenotype described for the patient as well as issues of penetrance and expressivity of the disorder. ACMG has published guidelines for the characterization of postnatal CNVs, and these recommendations should be utilized (Genet Med (2011)13: 680-685). Exceptions to these interpretive correlations will occur, and clinical judgment should always be exercised.
