Expression analyses of members of the GTF2I gene family in Williams-Beuren syndrome.
Written in English
Williams-Beuren Syndrome (WBS; OMIM 194050) is a multisystem developmental disorder caused by a hemizygous deletion of 7g11.23. To assess the hypothesis that GTF2I gene family members are involved in the pathogenesis of WBS due to their haploinsufficiency, we performed expression analyses on GTF2I and related gene GTF2IRD1 using independent methodologies of RNase Protection Assay and Quantitative Reverse-Transcription Polymerase-Chain-Reaction. Expression ratios were calculated by comparing normalized gene expression levels between probands (WBS Deletion, Inversion, or Duplication Patients) and respective parental controls. GTF2I expression levels correlated well with gene copy-number in WBS Deletion and Duplication Patient(s), but were not significantly altered in WBS Inversion Patients. In contrast, GTF2IRD1 showed overall low expression levels and no obvious correlation with gene copy-number in WBS Deletion or Duplication Patient(s), and were not significantly altered in WBS Inversion Patients. These results support a role for involvement of GTF2I in the pathogenesis of WBS.

Williams–Beuren syndrome (also known as Williams syndrome) is caused by a deletion of a to megabase region from chromosome band 7q GTF2IRD1 and GTF2I, located within this critical region, encode proteins of the TFII-I family with multiple helix–loop–helix domains known as I repeats.

Of the TFII-I family, GTF2I was the first member identified and is, therefore, best understood (Cheriyath and Roy ).GTF2I contains an LZ, which is essential for ho-modimerization, and six I-repeats.
The I-repeats are specific to TFII-I family members, and have a putative helix-loop-helix (HLH) structure (Roy et al. ).Dimerization is thought to be facilitated through the I-repeats Cited by: 1.

Protein Science, the flagship journal of The Protein Society, serves an international forum for publishing original reports on all scientific aspects of protein molecules. The Journal publishes papers by leading scientists from all over the world that report on advances in the understanding of proteins in the broadest sense.
Protein Science aims to unify this field by cutting across. for diagnosis is detection of the contiguous gene deletion of the Williams-Beuren syndrome critical region (WBSCR) that encompasses the elastin (ELN) gene. Over 99% of individuals with the clinical diagnosis of WS have this contiguous gene deletion, which can be detected using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) or targeted mutation analysis.

Williams–Beuren syndrome (WBS; MIM ) is a rare developmental disorder (1/20 –1/50 live births) which usually occurs sporadically and has striking physical and behavioural features. WBS individuals have mild mental retardation, Cited by: CLIP2, ELN, GTF2I, GTF2IRD1, and LIMK1 are among the genes that are typically deleted in people with Williams syndrome.
Researchers have found that loss of the ELN gene is associated with the connective tissue abnormalities and cardiovascular disease (specifically supravalvular aortic stenosis) found in many people with this disease.
General transcription factor (TFII-I) is a multi-functional transcription factor encoded by the Gtf2i gene, that has been demonstrated to regulate transcription of genes critical for development. Because of the broad range of genes regulated by TFII-I as well as its potential role in a significant neuro-developmental disorder, developing a comprehensive expression profile is critical to the Cited by: 6.
