  • Genomic Disorders  genetic diseases that result from DNA rearrangements (deletion, duplication, inversion, insertion) from kb to Mb, covering clusters of different genes -CNVs- (Lupski et al.1998, Stankiewicz et al. 2002, Lupski et al. 2003, Waltz et al. 2004). View slide
  • Genomic Disorders  Mechanisms mediated by genomic architecture - non-allelic homologous recombination(NAHR) - non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) - Fork Stalling and Template Switching models (FoSTeS)
  • Genomic Disorders  non-allelic homologous recombination(NAHR) - produced between two low-copy repeats (LCRs, also called segmental duplications, SD) - LCRs are region-specific DNA blocks of 10 to 300(kb) in size and of > 95% to 97% similarity to each other
  • Genomic Disorders  Due to their high degree of sequence identity, can sometimes be aligned in meiosis or mitosis, the 'misalignment' and the subsequent crossover between them can result in genomic rearrangements in progeny cells  The non-allelic copies act as the substrates of the homologous recombination and they are responsible for the observed breakpoint clustering.
  • Genomic Disorders  When the two LCRs are located on the same chromosome and in direct orientation, NAHR between them causes duplication and/or deletion.
  • Genomic Disorders  When they are on the same chromosome but in opposite orientation, NAHR results in inversion of the fragment flanked by them.
  • Genomic Disorders  Interchromosomal and interchromatid NAHR between LCRs in direct orientation result in reciprocal duplication and deletion, whereas intrachromatid NAHR only creates deletion.

  • LCRs 22q11.21 (Shaikh TH. 2000).
  • Genomic Disorders Diagnostic methods for the detection and characterization of DNA rearrangements  fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)  pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE)  in silico analyses  multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA)  array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH)
  • FL1 gene in Smith-Magenis critical region in 17p11.2 - FITC (green), LIS1 in 17p13.3 - Texas Red. Both 17s are identified by the red LIS1signal. Deletion of the green FLI signal is seen in one 17.
  • N 5 S q D 3 1 5 Sotos critical region - NSD1 (reed), in 5q35. Both 17s are identified by the centromere green signal. Deletion of the reedNSDN1 signal is seen in one 5q.

  • THANK YOU!  The clinical implementation of such advanced techniques is revolutionizing clinical cytogenetics, improving the understanding of genomic disorders and helping the doctors to offer a better genetics approach for the patients and their families.
