[…] (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 )., between 1 june 2001 and 31 december 2015, 50 individuals with a clinical diagnosis of lca from 40 unrelated pedigrees were enrolled into the airdr […]

[…] by c.1187-10g >a. the quantitative or confidence scores of the cryptic donor site are higher than the natural site according to the four software tools (). the l1 distance calculated with spliceman was 37994 with a percentile rank of 82%, which represents a high possibility that the c.1187-10g >a disrupts splicing., we genotyped the cdna of ldlr in the nuclear family. the proband […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] in silico analyses of genomic variants were performed using mutationtaster [], pon-p [] including phd-snp 2.0.6, polyphen 2.0.22, sift 4.0.3, snap 1.0.8 and i-mutant 3.0.6 programs used for analysis, spliceman [], spliceport [] and human splicing finder [] software programs., initially, we chose 50 patients for copy number analysis using acgh and identified nine cnvs in eight (16%) of them (table  […]
