Neves-Pereira, 2009_1 human bloodAD case report
  • Subjects: 1 boy
  • Normal Controls: -
  • Methods: GTG banded metaphase nuclei at the 550 band level, FISH
  • Evidence Details: Screening identified a de novo balanced 46,XY,t(4;5)(q23;q31.3) translocation in a boy with classic autism.The breakpoint on chromosome four is located in a region linked to autism and maps 56 kb downstream of the EIF4E reference sequence.
Neves-Pereira, 2009_2 human blood--AD genetics: mutation screen
  • Subjects: 120 AGRE multiplex families
  • Normal Controls: 1020
  • Methods: direct sequencing of coding regions and promoter
  • Evidence Details: In two independent families, direct sequencing revealed a heterozygous single base C insertion in the EIF4E promoter region in the proband. In both of these families, the variant was also present in the second autistic sibling and the father. The variant was not found in 1020 anonymous control samples.
Neves-Pereira, 2009_3 human HeLa cell nuclear extract--- RNA expression regulation
  • Subjects: -
  • Normal Controls: -
  • Methods: Binding reactions and EMSA
  • Evidence Details: The mutation is located in a region previously identified as the EIF4E basal promoter element (4EBE) that binds hnRNPK and contains a stretch of 7 C nucleotides (C7-4EBE). The C insertion extends it to an 8 C nucleotide run (C8-4EBE).Electrophoretic mobility shift assays (EMSA) demonstrate that the C8-4EBE DNA sequence variant has an increased affinity for an abundant nuclear protein, probably hnRNPK
Kelleher lii, 2012_1 human bloodASD Mutation screen
  • Subjects: 290
  • Normal Controls: 300
  • Methods: direct sequencing
  • Evidence Details: 0 functional rare mutation was found in ASD case, 0 in control
