Mutations of DNAI1 in primary ciliary dyskinesia: Evidence of founder effect in a common mutation

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , &
Rationale: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare, usually autosomal recessive, genetic disorder characterized by ciliary dysfunction, sino-pulmonary disease, and situs inversus. Disease-causing mutations have been reported in DNAI1 and DNAH5 encoding outer dynein arm (ODA) proteins of cilia. Objectives: We analyzed DNAI1 to identify disease-causing mutations in PCD and to determine if the previously reported IVS1+2_3insT (219+3insT) mutation represents a "founder" or "hot spot" mutation. Methods: Patients with PCD from 179 unrelated families were...
