The Intrafamilial Variability of the 22q11.2 Microduplication Encompasses a Spectrum from Minor Cognitive Deficits to Severe Congenital Anomalies
This article investigates and reports on the wide variability seen between families with the 22q11.2 Duplication Syndrome.
A Benign Polymorphism or a Syndrome With a Very Large Clinical Variability and Reduced Penetrance? —Report of Two Families.
This article investigates and reports on the variability seen between two families with the 22q11.2 Duplication Syndrome.
The 22q11.2 duplication syndrome is an extremely variable disorder with a phenotype ranging from normal to learning disability and congenital defects. Both patients with a de novo 22q11.2 duplication and patients in whom the duplication has been inherited from a phenotypically normal parent have been reported. Read more
To understand the duplication activity leading to the complicated structure in the 22q11.2 region, the investigators have decomposed duplication sequences termed subunits. Analysis of primate genomes gives information about how recently these subunits emerged in addition to how actively they have expanded and confirms their role in mediating recombination events.
