Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To uncover pathogenic deep intronic variants in patients with colorectal adenomatous polyposis, in whom no germline mutation in the APC or MUTYH genes can be identified by routine diagnostics, we performed a systematic APC mRNA analysis in 125 unrelated mutation negative cases. Overall, we identified aberrant transcripts in 8% of the patients (familial cases 30%; early onset manifestation 21%). In eight of them two different out-of-frame pseudoexons were found consisting of a 167 bp insertion from intron 4 in five families with a shared founder haplotype and a 83 bp insertion from intron 10 in three patients. The pseudoexon formation was caused by three different heterozygous germline mutations, which are supposed to activate cryptic splice sites. In conclusion, a few deep intronic mutations contribute substantially to the APC mutation spectrum. cDNA analysis and/or target sequencing of intronic regions should be considered as an additional mutation discovery approach in polyposis patients.
