Default PubMed: Massively Parallel Sequencing of Exons on the X Chromosome Identifies RBM10 a

Massively Parallel Sequencing of Exons on the X Chromosome Identifies RBM10 as the Gene that Causes a Syndromic Form of Cleft Palate.

Am J Hum Genet. 2010 May 5;

Authors: Johnston JJ, Teer JK, Cherukuri PF, Hansen NF, Loftus SK, , Chong K, Mullikin JC, Biesecker LG

Micrognathia, glossoptosis, and cleft palate comprise one of the most common malformation sequences, Robin sequence. It is a component of the TARP syndrome, talipes equinovarus, atrial septal defect, Robin sequence, and persistent left superior vena cava. This disorder is X-linked and severe, with apparently 100% pre- or postnatal lethality in affected males. Here we characterize a second family with TARP syndrome, confirm linkage to Xp11.23-q13.3, perform massively parallel sequencing of X chromosome exons, filter the results via a number of criteria including the linkage region, use a unique algorithm to characterize sequence changes, and show that TARP syndrome is caused by mutations in the RBM10 gene, which encodes RNA binding motif 10. We further show that this previously uncharacterized gene is expressed in midgestation mouse embryos in the branchial arches and limbs, consistent with the human phenotype. We conclude that massively parallel sequencing is useful to characterize large candidate linkage intervals and that it can be used successfully to allow identification of disease-causing gene mutations.
