Case Report: Identification of an HNF1B p.Arg527Gln mutation in a Maltese patient with atypical early onset diabetes and diabetic nephropathy

PMCID: 5952643
PMID: 29764441
DOI: 10.1186/s12902-018-0257-z

[…] to variants located in genes implicated in atypical non-autoimmune forms of diabetes and early-onset obesity. The prioritized candidate gene list was obtained by reviewing publications in PubMed and OMIM. Analysis focused on non-synonymous coding variants, frameshift indels, and variants affecting splice sites, as these are most likely to be pathogenic. Non-exonic and synonymous variants were exc […]


Genetic analyses in a cohort of 191 pulmonary arterial hypertension patients

[…] cluded results from SIFT, Ployphen-2, MutationTaster, the dbscSNV database. In addition, the clinical significance of the sequences was annotated using Clinvar (, OMIM (, Uniprot ( and HGMD ( Variants with cutoff values greater than 0.6 in the dbscSNV database were defined as splice-altering. Other s […]
