Description

The goal of the project is to identify and clone the gene(s) responsible for the Alagille Syndrome (AGS) by a positional cloning approach. The first step towards this goal is to define the smallest genomic candidate region for AGS at 20p12 and to begin to identify genes within this region which are, by definition, candidate genes for the disease. In a collaborative effort with clinician-investigators studying the Alagille syndrome, metaphase chromosomes and genomic DNA from affected individuals will be studied for subchromosomal deletions and for mutations in the candidate genes.

Eligibility criteria

  • All enrolled affected subjects, whose samples will be analyzed in this study, must meet the criteria for the clinical diagnosis of Alagille Syndrome (Syndromic Bile Duct Paucity) which include liver biopsy findings consistent with Alagille Syndrome and at least 3 of the 5 primary clinical criteria: cholestasis, characteristic face, posterior embryotoxon, "butterfly" vertebrae and cardiac findings.
