terminal 15q26.2->qter Deletion

Saturday 30 October 2010

Target gene

- IGF1R

  • Mutations in the IGF1R gene result in intrauterine growth retardation and postnatal growth failure.
  • The heterozygous mutation of IGF1R reduced IGF1R expression and represents haploinsufficiency of the IGF1R gene.
  • Mutation in the IGF1R gene leads to abnormalities in the function of IGF1R and also retards intrauterine and subsequent growth in humans.
