Patient with multiple acyl CoA dehydrogenase deficiency disease and ETFDH mutations benefits from riboflavin therapy: a case report

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 5883299
PMID: 29615056
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-018-0356-8

[…] assing these quality filters were annotated with information from public annotation databases using ANNOVAR. We exclude common variants with allele frequency greater than 0.05 in the 1000 Genomes and ExAC Browser. Choice of variants for further analysis were limited to genes implicated in glutaric academia, carnitine metabolism and acyl coenzyme metabolism; and supported by in silico analysis by d […]

[…] on rare variants with a minor allele frequency (MAF) ≤0.005 in 1000 Genomes (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/variation/tools/1000genomes/), Exome Variant Server (EVS) (http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS/), ExAC Browser (http://exac.broadinstitute.org/), and CIBERER Spanish Variant Server (http://csvs.babelomics.org/); iv) missense SNV and in-frame deletions that induced an alteration in the protein pred […]


Four TRPM4 Cation Channel Mutations Found in Cardiac Conduction Diseases Lead to Altered Protein Stability

Front Physiol
PMCID: 5852105
PMID: 29568272
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2018.00177

[…] t server (http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS/), as well as Polyphen2, SIFT and Mutation Taster were used (Table ). For data interpretation, human gene mutation database (HGMD, Biobase), 1000 genoms and ExAC browser were used. […]


Targeted next generation sequencing analysis in couples at increased risk for autosomal recessive disorders

Orphanet J Rare Dis
PMCID: 5787287
PMID: 29373990
DOI: 10.1186/s13023-018-0763-0

[…] r, the OMIM catalog, the Human Gene Mutation Database (HGMD) and the ClinVar database. The following criteria were used to look for rare potentially deleterious variants: MAF < 1% in dbSNP138, ESP or ExAC Browser, or present in HGMD or ClinVar as a disease-causing variant. Only variants that were non-synonymous coding or splice-site variants including small indels and predicted to be pathogenic or […]


Compound heterozygous loss of function mutations in KIF20A are associated with a novel lethal congenital cardiomyopathy in two siblings

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5794171
PMID: 29357359
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007138

[…] premature stop codon 15 amino acids downstream. These observations suggest that both variants are likely to affect protein function.These variants were absent in the population control exomes. In the ExAC Browser database, containing genetic data of 60 706 humans of various ethnicities, the missense variant was found in 2 individuals, respectively of South Asian and European origin. The frameshift […]


A novel desmin (DES) indel mutation causes severe atypical cardiomyopathy in combination with atrioventricular block and skeletal myopathy

PMCID: 5902401
PMID: 29274115
DOI: 10.1002/mgg3.358

[…] ent's healthy daughter (IV‐1) did not carry this mutation (Figure a). Genomic DNA from further family members was not available limiting a cosegregation analysis. Public genetic population databases (ExAc Browser, http://exac.broadinstitute.org; Exome Variant Server, http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS; Human Mutation Gene Database, http://www.hgmd.cf.ac.uk; October 2017) do not contain this mutation […]
