  • Hundreds of variants clustered in genomic loci and biological pathways affect human height.

    • Most common human traits and diseases have a polygenic pattern of inheritance: DNA sequence variants at many genetic loci influence the phenotype. Genome-wide association (GWA) studies have identified more than 600 variants associated with human traits(1), but these typically explain small fractions of phenotypic variation, raising questions about the use of further studies. Here, using 183,727 individuals, we show that hundreds of genetic variants, in at least 180 loci, influence adult height, a highly heritable and classic polygenic trait(2,3). The large number of loci reveals patterns with important implications for genetic studies of common human diseases and traits. First, the 180 loci are not random, but instead are enriched for genes that are connected in biological pathways (P = 0.016) and that underlie skeletal growth defects (P<0.001). Second, the likely causal gene is often located near the most strongly associated variant: in 13 of 21 loci containing a known skeletal growth gene, that gene was closest to the associated variant. Third, at least 19 loci have multiple independently associated variants, suggesting that allelic heterogeneity is a frequent feature of polygenic traits, that comprehensive explorations of already-discovered loci should discover additional variants and that an appreciable fraction of associated loci may have been identified. Fourth, associated variants are enriched for likely functional effects on genes, being over-represented among variants that alter amino-acid structure of proteins and expression levels of nearby genes. Our data explain approximately 10% of the phenotypic variation in height, and we estimate that unidentified common variants of similar effect sizes would increase this figure to approximately 16% of phenotypic variation (approximately 20% of heritable variation). Although additional approaches are needed to dissect the genetic architecture of polygenic human traits fully, our findings indicate that GWA studies can identify large numbers of loci that implicate biologically relevant genes and pathways.

  • Mutations in the polyglutamylase gene TTLL5, expressed in photoreceptor cells and spermatozoa, are associated with cone-rod degeneration and reduced male fertility
  • 2016

    • Hereditary retinal degenerations encompass a group of genetic diseases characterized by extreme clinical variability. Following next-generation sequencing and autozygome-based screening of patients presenting with a peculiar, recessive form of cone-dominated retinopathy, we identified five homozygous variants [p.(Asp594fs), p.(Gln117*), p.(Met712fs), p.(Ile756Phe), and p.(Glu543Lys)] in the polyglutamylase-encoding gene TTLL5, in eight patients from six families. The two male patients carrying truncating TTLL5 variants also displayed a substantial reduction in sperm motility and infertility, whereas those carrying missense changes were fertile. Defects in this polyglutamylase in humans have recently been associated with cone photoreceptor dystrophy, while mouse models carrying truncating mutations in the same gene also display reduced fertility in male animals. We examined the expression levels of TTLL5 in various human tissues and determined that this gene has multiple viable isoforms, being highly expressed in testis and retina. In addition, antibodies against TTLL5 stained the basal body of photoreceptor cells in rat and the centrosome of the spermatozoon flagellum in humans, suggesting a common mechanism of action in these two cell types. Taken together, our data indicate that mutations in TTLL5 delineate a novel, allele-specific syndrome causing defects in two as yet pathogenically unrelated functions, reproduction and vision.

  • Bacillus subtilis contains two small c-type cytochromes with homologous heme-domains but different types of membrane-anchors
  • 1999
  • Ingår i: Journal of Biological Chemistry. - ASBMB. - 1083-351X. ; 274, s. 26179-26184
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We demonstrate that the cccB gene, identified in the Bacillus subtilis genome sequence project, is the structural gene for a 10-kDa membrane-bound cytochrome c551 lipoprotein described for the first time in B. subtilis. Apparently, CccB corresponds to cytochrome c551 of the thermophilic bacterium Bacillus PS3. The heme domain of B. subtilis cytochrome c551 is very similar to that of cytochrome c550, a protein encoded by the cccA gene and anchored to the membrane by a single transmembrane polypeptide segment. Thus, B. subtilis contains two small, very similar, c-type cytochromes with different types of membrane anchors. The cccB gene is cotranscribed with the yvjA gene, and transcription is repressed by glucose. Mutants deleted for cccB or yvjA-cccB show no apparent growth, sporulation, or germination defect. YvjA is not required for the synthesis of cytochrome c551, and its function remains unknown.

  • Subunit II of Bacillus subtilis cytochrome c oxidase is a lipoprotein
  • 1999
  • Ingår i: Journal of Bacteriology. - American Society for Microbiology. - 0021-9193. ; 181, s. 685-688
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The sequence of the N-terminal end of the deduced ctaC gene product of Bacillus species has the features of a bacterial lipoprotein. CtaC is the subunit II of cytochrome caa3, which is a cytochrome c oxidase. Using Bacillus subtilis mutants blocked in lipoprotein synthesis, we show that CtaC is a lipoprotein and that synthesis of the membrane-bound protein and covalent binding of heme to the cytochrome c domain is not dependent on processing at the N-terminal part of the protein. Mutants blocked in prolipoprotein diacylglyceryl transferase (Lgt) or signal peptidase type II (Lsp) are, however, deficient in cytochrome caa3 enzyme activity. Removal of the signal peptide from the CtaC polypeptide, but not lipid modification, is seemingly required for formation of functional enzyme.

  • Underlying genetic mechanisms of hereditary dystrophies in retina and cornea
  • 2017
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p>Inherited retinal and corneal dystrophies represent a group of disorders with great genetic heterogeneity. Over 250 genes are associated with retinal diseases and 16 genes are causative of corneal dystrophies. This thesis is focused on finding the genetic causes of corneal dystrophy, Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), Stargardt disease and retinitis pigmentosa in families from northern Sweden.  By whole exome sequencing a novel mutation, c.2816C&gt;T, p.Thr939Ile, in Collagen Type XVII, Alpha 1 chain, <em>COL17A1</em>, gene was identified in several families with epithelial recurrent erosion dystrophy (ERED). We showed that the COL17A1 protein is expressed in the basement membrane of the cornea, explaining the mutation involvement in the corneal symptoms. We could link all the families in this study to a couple born in the late 1700s confirming a founder mutation in northern Sweden. Our finding highlights role of COL17A1 in ERED and suggests screening of this gene in patients with similar phenotype worldwide. Furthermore the genetic causes in several retinal degenerations were identified. In one family with two recessive disorders, LCA and Stargardt disease, a novel stop mutation, c.2557C&gt;T, p.Gln853Stop, was detected in all LCA patients. In the Stargardt patients two intronic variants, the novel c.4773+3A&gt;G and c.5461-10T&gt;C, were detected in the <em>ABCA4</em> gene. One individual was homozygous for the known variant c.5461-10T&gt;C and the other one was compound heterozygote with both variants present. Both variants, c.4773+3A&gt;G and c.5461-10T&gt;C caused exon skipping in HEK293T cells demonstrated by <em>in vitro</em> splice assay, proving their pathogenicity in Stargardt disease. Finally, in recessive retinitis pigmentosa, Bothnia Dystrophy (BD), we identified a second mutation in the <em>RLBP1 </em>gene,<em> </em>c.677T&gt;A, p.Met226Lys. Thus, BD is caused not only by common c.700C&gt;T variant but also by homozygosity of c.677T&gt;A or compound heterozygosity. Notably, known variant, c.40C&gt;T, p.R14W in the <em>CAIV</em> gene associated with a dominant retinal dystrophy RP17 was detected in one of the compound BD heterozygote and his unaffected mother. This variant appears to be a benign variant in the population of northern Sweden.</p><p>In conclusion, novel genetic causes of retinal dystrophies in northern Sweden were found demonstrating the heterogeneity and complexity of retinal diseases. Identification of the genetic defect in <em>COL17A1 </em>in the corneal dystrophy contributes to understanding ERED pathogenesis and encourages refinement of IC3D classification. Our results provide valuable information for future molecular testing and genetic counselling of the families.</p>

  • Mutations in CEP78 Cause Cone-Rod Dystrophy and Hearing Loss Associated with Primary-Cilia Defects
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Human Genetics. - Cell Press. - 0002-9297. ; 99:3, s. 770-776
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Cone-rod degeneration (CRD) belongs to the disease spectrum of retinal degenerations, a group of hereditary disorders characterized by an extreme clinical and genetic heterogeneity. It mainly differentiates from other retinal dystrophies, and in particular from the more frequent disease retinitis pigmentosa, because cone photoreceptors degenerate at a higher rate than rod photoreceptors, causing severe deficiency of central vision. After exome analysis of a cohort of individuals with CRD, we identified biallelic mutations in the orphan gene CEP78 in three subjects from two families: one from Greece and another from Sweden. The Greek subject, from the island of Crete, was homozygous for the c.499+1G>T (IVS3+1G>T) mutation in intron 3. The Swedish subjects, two siblings, were compound heterozygotes for the nearby mutation c.499+5G>A (IVS3+5G>A) and for the frameshift-causing variant c.633delC (p.Trp212Glyfs(∗)18). In addition to CRD, these three individuals had hearing loss or hearing deficit. Immunostaining highlighted the presence of CEP78 in the inner segments of retinal photoreceptors, predominantly of cones, and at the base of the primary cilium of fibroblasts. Interaction studies also showed that CEP78 binds to FAM161A, another ciliary protein associated with retinal degeneration. Finally, analysis of skin fibroblasts derived from affected individuals revealed abnormal ciliary morphology, as compared to that of control cells. Altogether, our data strongly suggest that mutations in CEP78 cause a previously undescribed clinical entity of a ciliary nature characterized by blindness and deafness but clearly distinct from Usher syndrome, a condition for which visual impairment is due to retinitis pigmentosa.

  • A novel missense variant in IDH3A causes autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Ophthalmic Genetics. - Taylor & Francis. - 1381-6810. ; 40:2, s. 177-181
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Inherited retinal degenerations (IRDs) encompass a wide spectrum of genetic ocular diseases characterized by considerable genetic and clinical heterogeneity. Methods: Complete ophthalmic examination and next-generation sequencing. Results: We describe a patient with no family history of vision loss, who at the age of 28 years developed visual impairment consistent with a severe form of retinitis pigmentosa. Genetic testing by means of whole exome sequencing identified a homozygous variant in the gene IDH3A. To date, only three papers have reported mutations in IDH3A, in families with early-onset retinal degeneration with or without the presence of macular pseudocoloboma. Conclusion: This study highlights the importance of including this rarely-mutated gene in the molecular diagnostic set-ups for IRDs, and further delineates the phenotypic spectrum elicited by mutations in IDH3A.

  • Sex-stratified Genome-wide Association Studies Including 270,000 Individuals Show Sexual Dimorphism in Genetic Loci for Anthropometric Traits
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: PLoS Genetics. - Public Library of Science. - 1553-7404. ; 9:6
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Given the anthropometric differences between men and women and previous evidence of sex-difference in genetic effects, we conducted a genome-wide search for sexually dimorphic associations with height, weight, body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, and waist-to-hip-ratio (133,723 individuals) and took forward 348 SNPs into follow-up (additional 137,052 individuals) in a total of 94 studies. Seven loci displayed significant sex-difference (FDR<5%), including four previously established (near GRB14/COBLL1, LYPLAL1/SLC30A10, VEGFA, ADAMTS9) and three novel anthropometric trait loci (near MAP3K1, HSD17B4, PPARG), all of which were genome-wide significant in women (P<5x10(-8)), but not in men. Sex-differences were apparent only for waist phenotypes, not for height, weight, BMI, or hip circumference. Moreover, we found no evidence for genetic effects with opposite directions in men versus women. The PPARG locus is of specific interest due to its role in diabetes genetics and therapy. Our results demonstrate the value of sex-specific GWAS to unravel the sexually dimorphic genetic underpinning of complex traits.
