|Title:||Characterisation of novel mutations in Cockayne syndrome type A and xeroderma pigmentosum group C subjects.|
|Citation:||J HUM GENET, 2005, 50 (3), pp. 151-154|
|Abstract:||We report that a subject with Cockayne syndrome type A (CS3BE) was a compound heterozygote for mutations in CKN1, the gene encoding the CSA protein (MIM 216400). CS3BE displayed a novel missense mutation (A160V) and a previously described nonsense mutation (E13X). Although residing between the second and third WD-40 repeats characteristic of the CSA protein, A160 is completely conserved in all species that possess a CKN1 homologue. We also describe a mutation in a previously uncharacterised xeroderma pigmentosum group C subject (XP8CA) in the XPC gene (MIM 278720). XP8CA was homozygous for a 2 bp TG deletion in codon 547 resulting in premature termination at codon 572. Immunoblotting of XP8CA extracts confirmed the absence of full-length XPC protein that was present in unaffected cell lines.|
