Novel non-contiguous exon duplication in choroideremia

Abstract:

The importance of establishing a genetic diagnosis in patients with a choroideremia phenotype has been underscored by the advent of gene replacement therapy for this condition. Here, we describe a complex imbalance at the CHM locus in a male patient with classical disease. At the DNA level, this imbalance consists of 2 non-contiguous duplications (exons 1-2 and 9-12). Further characterization suggests the generation of 2 independent CHM transcriptional units, one of which may produce a delete...
