Chromosome 20p deletion, mutation and the FOXA2 gene

Chromosome 20p deletion, mutation and the FOXA2 gene. The FOXA2 gene is important in the development of the pituitary gland. Development of the pituitary gland (PG) depends on a complex action of several transcription factors. Underdevelopment of the PG leads to growth delay, defects in metabolism, reproduction and other functions....

Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome and 7p14 deletion

Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) and chromosome 7p14 deletion facial dysmorphism and developmental delay. Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome (GCPS) is an autosomal dominant disorder. The main manifestations of this condition are macrocephaly, facial dysmorphism and polysyndactyly (preaxial polydactyly is an association with syndactyly between several fingers and/or toes). Usually the genetic basis...

Chromosome 3q21 deletion and GATA2 gene mutation

Chromosome 3q21 deletion and GATA2 gene mutation can cause immunodeficiency and other problems leading to cancer. The chromosomal segment 3q21 contains several genes, including the GATA2 gene. This gene encodes a zing finger transcription factor expressed in the precursors of several sorts of blood cells. Mutations of the GATA2 gene...
