Institute of Molecular Medicine: Postdoctoral fellow

Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, Institute of Molecular Medicine, Laboratory of Molecular Genetics of Human, head Prof. D.V. Zaletaev

Website: https://sechenov.ru/eng/

Project: ‘Spectrum of point mutations in frequent mental retardation syndromes’

Fragile X and Angelman syndromes are among the most prevalent inherited diseases in human. In most cases, they originate not from point gene mutations but from more complex molecular genetic events. Fragile X syndrome caused by a “dynamic mutation”, which is expansion of the trinucleotide CGG repeat in the promoter region of the FMR1 gene. Angelman syndrome caused by violation of normal imprinting of a number of genes in the imprinted region of chromosome 15. As far as these unusual but rather well studied molecular events are believed to account for the majority of disease cases, scarce remain studies of point mutations that may lead to the similar phenotypes. 

Aim: to characterize spectrum of point mutations in the FMR1, UBE3A, ARX & MeCP2 genes in patients with Fragile X and Angelman syndromes and similar mental retardation phenotypes.

Methods: Next generation sequencing of all exons of FMR1, UBE3A, ARX & MeCP2 genes, validation of the identified mutations by Sanger sequencing.

Patients cohort will be provided by the Research Centre for Medical Genetics.
