Of the 11 candidate variants, only 7 were seen in affected family members. Of the 7 variants, 3 cosegregated in the three affected people of Family 1 . These patients each carried a heterozygous variant of the STAT1 gene in exon 10 mapping to chromosome 2 . The mutation predicts an amino acid change in the CC domain of STAT1 . In each affected affected person, STAT1 was the only gene with a heterozygous, nonsynonymous coding variant, making it the most likely candidate gene. One unaffected relation and two unrelated healthy subjects did not carry any mutation in STAT1. Of all novel, heterozygous, nonsynonymous coding variants, those in STAT1 affected amino acid residues that showed the strongest conservation over 44 vertebrate species.All rights reserved.

Neurocrine and Abbott Announce Global Agreement to build up and Commercialize Elagolix Abbott and Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc.
