  • Evidence Details: We have recently reported the identification of a de novo balanced translocation t(5;18)(q33.1;q12.1) in a boy with autism. The 18q breakpoint lies between desmocollin genes DSC1 and DSC2. we determined that both DSC1 and DSC2 are only transcribed from the normal chromosome 18 in lymphocytes from the proband. This monoallelic expression of DSC2 may put the patient at risk for arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
