Cleft palate with ankyloglossia (CPX; OMIM 303400) is inherited as a Mendelian semidominant X-Linked disorder. Linkage studies resulted in mapping CPX to Xq13-q 21-31 region. TBX22 was identified as causing CPX. We report a new mutation in a Tunisian family and the first Arab family with X-Linked cleft palate and ankyloglossia. The family includes 6 affected members, 4 males and 2 females. Linkage study was performed using 9 microsatellite markers surrounding the CPX locus with a maximum lod score 1.81 at theta=0 with several markers. Sequence analysis of TBX22 gene revealed a novel change c.358C>T in exon 3 (R120W) located in the T-BOX domain; this change was present in all affected members and none of the 100 controls. A second modification in exon 4 (c.559G>A) predicted to result in a nonconservative substitution (E187 K) was present in the affected members but also in 2 controls, suggesting a polymorphism which functional role cannot be excluded without further study.
