TAILIEUCHUNG - Molecular characterization of cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) in the western region in KSA

CCD is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by haploinsufficiency of Runt related transcription factor (RUNX2) essential for osteoblast cell commitment and chondrocyte maturation. A mutation of the RUNX2 (Core Binding Factor-α1 gene located at chromosome 6p21) is usually caused CCD. In general, the estimated prevalence of CCD is under diagnosed because of the relative lack of medical complications in comparison to other skeletal dysplasias. No available data on the prevalence of CCD or its characterization in Saudi families. In the present study, a Saudi family consists of a father, a mother, three daughters and one son was analyzed for mutation detection in seven exons (2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9) of RUNX2 gene with flanking intronic boundaries. Diagnosis of CCD is mostly made on the basis of clinical and radiographic features. | Molecular characterization of cleidocranial dysplasia CCD in the western region in KSA
