Infantile or complex glycerol kinase deficiency (cGKD) is a contiguous gene deletion syndrome caused by a loss of GK (MIM# 300474), along with its neighboring genes, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD; MIM# 300377) and/or Nuclear Receptor Subfamily 0, Group B, Member 1 (NR0B1; MIM# 300473). Patients with cGKD present with glyceroluria and hyperglycerolemia in association with DMD and/or adrenal hypoplasia congenita (AHC). The purpose of these investigations was to determine whether the Affymetrix GeneChip Mapping Array (SNP chip) could be utilized to detect and map breakpoints in patients with cGKD. Genomic DNAs from several primary lymphoblastoid cell lines from patients with cGKD were analyzed on the Affymetrix platform. The Affymetrix SNP chip is a high-density oligonucleotide array that allows a standardized, parallel interrogation of thousands of SNPs across the entire genome (except for the Y chromosome). Analysis of the array features' hybridization intensities enabled clear delineation of the patient deletions with a high degree of confidence. Many of these patient deletions had been mapped by PCR and their breakpoints confirmed by sequencing. This study demonstrates the utility of the Affymetrix Mapping GeneChips for molecular cytogenetic analysis, beyond the SNP genotyping for which the arrays were initially designed. With one out of 160 live births (approximately 25,000 U.S. neonates annually) reported to have cytogenetic disorders, we envision a significant need for such a standardized platform to carry out rapid, high-throughput, genomic analyses for molecular cytogenetics applications.

    ABSTRACT: As the cost of whole genome analysis decreases, we have the opportunity to explore the interactions of various gene changes in an individual that lead to their particular phenotype. This will provide the ability to move from the epidemiologic study of groups, in which, the individuals are treated collectively and homogenously, to personalized medicine, and a model in which the individual is recognized and treated as a distinct entity. We will be applying personalized medicine to individuals with Down syndrome in order to understand and develop biomarkers for increased risk of co-morbidities. Personalized medicine will change the "culture of intractability" of Down syndrome.

    ABSTRACT: This paper will describe the development of a dual-frequency SAR array operating in the L and C bands, with dual linear polarization capability in both bands. This array shares the same radiating aperture for both bands and both polarizations, resulting in the smallest possible aperture area for a given gain specification. A critical constraint in this project was the requirement for an extremely light weight package, leading to the use of foam substrates with thin dielectric membranes for metalization of the radiating elements and feed networks

    ABSTRACT: DiGeorge (del22q11.2) syndrome is estimated to occur in 1:4,000 births, is the most common contiguous-gene deletion syndrome in humans, and is caused by autosomal dominant deletions in the 22q11.2 DiGeorge syndrome critical region (DGCR). Multiple microarray methods have been developed recently for analyzing such copy number changes, but data analysis and accurate deletion detection remains challenging. Clinical use of these microarray methods would have many advantages, particularly when the possibility of a chromosomal disorder cannot be determined simply on the basis of history and physical examination data alone. We investigated the use of the microarray technique, representational oligonucleotide microarray analysis (ROMA), in the detection of del22q11.2 syndrome. Genomic DNA was isolated from three well-characterized cell lines with 22q11.2 DGCR deletions and from the blood of a patient suspected of having del22q11.2 syndrome, and analyzed using both the binning and change-point model algorithms. Though the 22q11.2 deletion was easily identified with either method, change-point models provide clearer identification of deleted regions, with the potential for fewer false-positive results. For circumstances in which a clear, a priori, copy-number change hypothesis is not present, such as in many clinical samples, change-point methods of analysis may be easier to interpret.
