Study Description

Two variants (c.[301_302delAG];[301_302delAG] and c.[150delA];[150delA]) in the PROP1 gene are the most common genetic causes of recessively inherited combined pituitary hormones deficiency (CPHD). Our objective was to analyze in detail the origin of the two most prevalent variants. In the multicentric study were included 237 patients with CPHD and their 15 relatives carrying c.[301_302delAG];[301_302delAG] or c.[150delA];[150delA] or c.[301_302delAG];[ 150delA]. They originated from 21 different countries worldwide. We genotyped 21 single nucleotide variant markers flanking the 9.6Mb region around the PROP1 gene that are not in mutual linkage disequilibrium in the general populations - a finding of a common haplotype would be indicative of ancestral origin of the variant. Haplotypes were reconstructed by Phase and Haploview software, and the variant age was estimated using an allelic association method. We demonstrated ancestral origin of both variants: c.[301_302delAG] was carried on 0.2Mb-long haplotype in a majority of European patients arising approximately 101 generations ago ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The dataset for the PROP1 study consists of samples of patients with combined pituitary hormone deficiency due to two most prevalent mutations in the PROP1 gene (c.301_302delGA and c.150delA) and healthy relatives and controls. All subjects were genotyped for 21 single nucleotide polymorphisms surrounding the PROP1 gene in order to assess the potential ancestral origin of the respective mutations. The genotype data are displayed in the vcf format.
