C Ramirez-Renteria and colleagues conduct a study to evaluate the molecular abnormalities in the AIP gene in a cohort of Mexican patients with acromegaly with disease onset before the age of 30. They identified the well-known truncation variants c.910C>T (p.Arg304Ter) and also new variants: a frameshift mutation (c.976_977insC, p.Gly326AfsTer), an in-frame deletion (c.872_877del, p.Val291_Leu292del) and a nonsense mutation (c.868A>T, p.Lys290Ter), which are predicted to be pathogenic based on in silico analysis. They also revealed that the prevalence of AIP variants in young Mexican patients with acromegaly is similar to that of European cohorts.

"I tried different software applications that are available in the market before I made my final decision. I must say alamut visual is the best in many ways, and sometimes you feel like you enjoy to surf in software and it makes you feel more and more curious with your findings in the data you work with. Thank you!"
