The genetic profile of Leber congenital amaurosis in an Australian cohort

PMCID: 5702575
PMID: 29178642
DOI: 10.1002/mgg3.321

[…] n2 (Adzhubei et al. ), and SIFT. Splice site variants at consensus dinucleotides (±1/2) were automatically assigned a pathogenic status (Hellen ; Wallis et al. ) or assessed using Mutation Taster and Spliceman (Lim and Fairbrother ). […]


Identification of the gene defect responsible for severe hypercholesterolaemia using whole exome sequencing

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4468422
PMID: 26077743
DOI: 10.1038/srep11380
call_split See protocol

[…] We used four in silico tools, the Alternative Splice Site Predictor (ASSP), Human Splice Finder (HSF), NetGene2, and Spliceman to predict the impact of C.1187-10G >A on the pre-mRNA splicing of LDLR. These software tools provide quantitative or confidence scores for the wild-type and mutant splice site sequences tha […]


RNA Binding Proteins: Splicing Factors and Disease

PMCID: 4496701
PMID: 25985083
DOI: 10.3390/biom5020893

[…] own to function as intronic splicing enhancers (ISEs) (A) []. Positional distribution analysis uses this property to predict loss of binding without knowledge of the trans-acting factor ([], see also Spliceman below). Non-coding, and functionally conservative or silent mutations that have little to no effect on the translated protein have been demonstrated to cause disease by disrupting splicing [ […]


Clinical and molecular characterization of a Brazilian cohort of campomelic dysplasia patients, and identification of seven new SOX9 mutations

Genet Mol Biol
PMCID: 4415563
PMID: 25983619

[…] and Y chromosome-specific sequences in zinc finger protein, X-linked (ZFX), and sex determining region Y (SRY) genes, respectively. Primer sequences and PCR conditions are available upon request. The Spliceman web server () was used to estimate the pathogenicity of the splice-site mutation identified in patient 3.Ethical approval for this study was obtained from both the Institutional Review Board […]


In silico tools for splicing defect prediction A survey from the viewpoint of end users

PMCID: 4029872
PMID: 24263461
DOI: 10.1038/gim.2013.176

[…] ; CRYP-SKIP (http://cryp-skip.img.cas.cz/): multiple logistic regression model which distinguishes exons that are skipped and that activate cryptic splice sites as a result of splicing mutations; and Spliceman (http://fairbrother.biomed.brown.edu/spliceman/index.cgi): prediction of how likely distant mutations around annotated splice sites disrupt splicing by clustering hexamers into distinct grou […]
