Whole exome sequencing of young onset Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
Primary sclerosing chloangitis is a rare autoimmune disease of the liver (prevalence =10/100,000) with a mean age of onset of 40 years. We are currently undertaking GWASand immunochip experiments to identify loci underlying PSC susceptibility. Through ourcollaborators at the University of Calgary we have access to DNA from three parent-offspringtrios where the children required liver transplants due to PSC before the age of 9. These areextremely rare cases indeed and we believe that exome-sequencing represents a powerfulmeans of identifying the causal mutation underlying this severe phenotype.
