Study Description

Approximately 80% of clinically clearly diagnosed patients suffering from primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) cannot be assigned to a specific gene defect. Despite extensive research on PCD and despite the increasing number of PCD genes and knowledge about their sites of action as e.g structural component or cytoplasmic pre-assembly factor, the biology of motile cilia and the pathomechanism leading to PCD is largely unknown. The aim of this study is to identify novel PCD related genes and processes relevant for motile cilia function.We will perform exome sequencing, aiming on the analysis of family trios. In these families, the diagnosis of PCD is secured, but the underlying gene defects has so far not been identified.
