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.

What they say
about Alamut

"Alamut Visual has dramatically improved our research capabilities and our testing workflow related to both NGS and Sanger based tests. We wouldn't want to imagine a world without it.
Alamut Batch is an intuitive, comprehensive and cost-effective solution to annotation."
