Marfan syndrome caused by a mutation in FBN1 that gives rise to cryptic splicing and a 33 nucleotide insertion in the coding sequence.

Abstract:

We have studied a patient with Marfan syndrome whose mutation was not detected by heteroduplex analysis. Primary cultured patient fibroblasts were metabolically labelled and found to secrete fibrillin-1 defectively when compared with an age-matched control. Sequencing of patient cDNA, isolated by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction of patient fibroblast RNA, detected a 33-bp insertion. The reading frame of the mutant allele was maintained and predicted the insertion of 11 amino ac...
