The Yin and Yang of Autosomal Recessive Primary Microcephaly Genes: Insights from Neurogenesis and Carcinogenesis.
Last Updated: Nov 24, 2020

The stem cells of neurogenesis and carcinogenesis share many properties, including proliferative rate, an extensive replicative potential, the potential to generate different cell types of a given tissue, and an ability to independently migrate to a damaged area. This is also evidenced ...

The Mitotic Apparatus and Kinetochores in Microcephaly and Neurodevelopmental Diseases.
Last Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Regulators of mitotic division, when dysfunctional or expressed in a deregulated manner (over- or underexpressed) in somatic cells, cause chromosome instability, which is a predisposing condition to cancer that is associated with unrestricted proliferation. Genes encoding mitotic ...

PRRT2 gene variant in a child with dysmorphic features, congenital microcephaly, and severe epileptic seizures: genotype-phenotype correlation?
Last Updated: May 27, 2020

Mutations in Proline-rich Transmembrane Protein 2 (PRRT2) have been primarily associated with individuals presenting with infantile epilepsy, including benign familial infantile epilepsy, benign infantile epilepsy, and benign myoclonus of early infancy, and/or with dyskinetic paroxysms ...

Does APC/C control the human brain size?: An Editorial Highlight for 'A novel human Cdh1 mutation impairs anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) activity resulting in microcephaly, psychomotor retardation, and epilepsy' on page 103.
Last Updated: Jun 03, 2020

This editorial highlights a study by Rodriguez, Sanchez-Moran et al. (2019) in the current issue of the Journal of Neurochemistry, in which the authors describe a microcephalic boy carrying the novel heterozygous de novo missense mutation c.560A> G; p.Asp187Gly in Cdh1/Fzr1 encoding ...

RRP7A links primary microcephaly to dysfunction of ribosome biogenesis, resorption of primary cilia, and neurogenesis.
Last Updated: Nov 25, 2020

Primary microcephaly (MCPH) is characterized by reduced brain size and intellectual disability. The exact pathophysiological mechanism underlying MCPH remains to be elucidated, but dysfunction of neuronal progenitors in the developing neocortex plays a major role. We identified a ...

A de novo synonymous variant in EFTUD2 disrupts normal splicing and causes mandibulofacial dysostosis with microcephaly: case report.
Last Updated: Nov 02, 2020

Mandibulofacial dysostosis with microcephaly (MFDM) is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by intellectual and growth retardations, as well as major microcephaly, induced by missense and splice site variants or microdeletions in the EFTUD2 gene.

Trappc9 deficiency causes parent-of-origin dependent microcephaly and obesity.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Some imprinted genes exhibit parental origin specific expression bias rather than being transcribed exclusively from one copy. The physiological relevance of this remains poorly understood. In an analysis of brain-specific allele-biased expression, we identified that Trappc9, a cellular ...
