Deleted probes are red, non-deleted SPRED1 probes are green, and reference probes with 2 copies are blue.|
|AJMA_33894_sm_eFig-2.doc||541K||eFigure 2: a) RT-PCR of SPRED1 coding region. Lanes 1, 3, and 4 represent normal controls. Lane 2 shows amplification of normal allele and amplification of the shorter deleted allele for the proband of Family 3. Lane 5 contains water instead of DNA (no product). Lane M contains 1kb DNA ladder (Promega). b) MLPA result showing deletion of probes 13044-L14227, 13045-L14228, 13046-L14229, 13047-L14230, 11017-L11686, 13049-L14232, 11015-L11684, 11019-L11688, 11016-L11685, 13051-L14234, 13052-L14235, 11018-L11687, 13054-L14237, 13057-L14240, 13058-L1424, in order of product size, left to right, representing the region spanning from intron 1 to intron 6 in the proband of Family 3 (probe nomenclature as described in eTable I, probe coloration as described in eFigure1). c) Sequencing results showing the break point of the deletion from intron 1 to intron 6 in the proband of Family 3. Black text indicates sequence observed in the proband of Family 3, grey text indicates sequence that has been deleted.|
