Evidence for Loss Phenotypes

Evidence for loss of function phenotype
PubMed ID Description
16254601 Hannula-Jouppi et al. (2005): The authors propose that two functional copies of ROBO1 are required in brain development to acquire normal reading ability, and partial haploinsufficiency for ROBO1 may predispose humans to specific dyslexia. This was based upon the finding of a disruption by translocation of ROBO1 in dyslexic patient, and the finding of allele-specific, reduced expression in dyslexic individuals of a large pedigree.

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.
