Evidence for haploinsufficiency phenotype
PubMed ID Description
20585555 Kagami (2010): This report includes a patient with a paternal UPD(14) phenotype who had a maternally-inherited 8.5 kb focal deletion of the intergenic differentially methylated region (IG-DMR) between the DLK1 and MEG3 genes. The mother had features suggestive of maternal UPD(14) though grandparental testing was not done.

Haploinsufficiency phenotype comments:

There have been a number of families and sporadic cases with upd(14)pat or upd(14)mat-like phenotypes and larger deletions that include this region and other genes within this imprinted region (PMIDs: 18176563, 20179077, 18454453).

  • Triplosensitivity score: 0
