  • The combined use of qualitative and quantitative analysis of I I p I 3 polymorphic markers tagether with chromosomal in situ suppression hybridization (CISS) with biotin labeled probes mapping to I I p allowed us to characterize a complex rearrangement segregating in a family. We detected a pericentric intrachromosomal insertion responsible (or recurrence of del( I I )(p 13p 14) in the family: an insertion of band I I p 13-p 14 carrying the genes for predisposition to Wilms' tumor, WT I, and for aniridia, AN2, into the long arm of chromosome IThe combined use of qualitative and quantitative analysis of I I p I 3 polymorphic markers tagether with chromosomal in situ suppression hybridization (CISS) with biotin labeled probes mapping to I I p allowed us to characterize a complex rearrangement segregating in a family. We detected a pericentric intrachromosomal insertion responsible (or recurrence of del( I I )(p 13p 14) in the family: an insertion of band I I p 13-p 14 carrying the genes for predisposition to Wilms' tumor, WT I, and for aniridia, AN2, into the long arm of chromosome I I in II q 13-q 1<4. Asymptomatic balanced carriers were observed over three generations. Classical cytogenetics had failed to detect this anomaly in the balanced carriers, who were first considered to be somatic mosaics for del( II )(p 13). Two of these women gave birth to children carrying a deleted chromosome II. most likely resulting from the loss of the I I p 13 band inserted in I I q. Although in both cases the deletion encompassed exactly the same maternally inherited markers, there was a wide Variation in clinical expression. One child, with the karyotype 46,XY,del(ll)(pllpl4), presented the full-blown WAGR syndrome with anlridia, mental retardation, Wilms' tumor, and pseudohermaphroditism, but also had proteinuria and glomerular sclerosis reminiscent of Drash syndrome. In contrast, the other one, a girl with the karyotype 46,XX,del( I I )(p I 3), only had aniridia. Although a specific set of mutational sites has been observed in Drash patients, these findings suggest that the loss of one copy of the WTI gene can result in similar genital and kidney abnormalities.show moreshow less
