Discovering genetic causes of optic atrophy syndromes through whole exome sequencing
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The genetic defects leading to optic atrophy range from mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) point mutations in Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON), to dominant and recessive mutations affecting a cluster of nuclear genes implicated in mitochondrial dynamics. We performed WES in patients with an optic atrophy spectrum disorder, including retinal macular dystrophy and kidney insufficiency leading to transplantation, associated with mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) depletion without accumulation of multiple deletions, to identify the genetic causes of this syndrome.
