Many pathogenic genetic variants have been shown to disrupt mRNA splicing. Besides splice mutations in the well-conserved splice sites, mutations in splicing regulatory elements (SREs) may deregulate splicing and cause disease. A promising therapeutic approach is to compensate for this...

Mutation of hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) gives rise to Lesch-Nyhan syndrome, which is characterized by hyperuricemia, severe motor disability, and self-injurious behavior, or HPRT-related gout with hyperuricemia. Four mutations were detected in two Lesch-Nyhan families and two families with partial...

Over the past decade, a steady increase in the incidence of HPRT-related hyperuricemia (HRH) has been observed in Saudi Arabia. We examined all the nine exons of HPRT gene for mutations in ten biochemically confirmed hyperuricemia patients, including one female...

Familial dysautonomia (FD) is a severe genetic disorder causing sensory and autonomic dysfunction. It is predominantly caused by a c.2204+6T>C mutation in the IKBKAP gene. This mutation decreases the 5' splice site strength of IKBKAP exon 20 leading to exon...

Inherited mutation of the purine salvage enzyme, hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) gives rise to Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS) or Lesch-Nyhan variants (LNVs). We report three novel independent mutations in the coding region of HPRT gene: exon 3: c.141delA, p.D47fs53X; exon 5:...

Lesch-Nyhan disease (LND) is an X-linked genetic disorder caused by mutations of the hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) purine biosynthesis gene and characterized by aberrant purine metabolism, deficient basal ganglia dopamine levels, dystonia, and severe neurobehavioral manifestations, including compulsive self-injurious behavior....

Nucleotide variants can cause functional changes by altering protein-RNA binding in various ways that are not easy to predict. This can affect processes such as splicing, nuclear shuttling, and stability of the transcript. Therefore, correct modeling of protein-RNA binding is...
