      Variant SLC5A2 proteins had altered expression levels and expression patterns in addition to significantly lower glucose transport capacity upon reconstitution in cultured cells. Our study provides functions clues regarding the role of the SLC5A2 molecule in FRG families and provides useful clues for the study of anti-diabetes drugs.

      Article first published online: 27 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/humu.22709

      De novo (genetic changes not transmitted from the parents) missense mutations targeting conserved residues in the motor domain of the neuron-specific motor protein KIF1A alters its activity and cause a complex neurologic phenotype characterized by severe developmental delay and/or intellectual disability, as well as variable cerebellar atrophy, visual loss, spastic paraparesis, peripheral neuropathy and epilepsy.

      Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal-dominant disorder mostly caused by mutations in the LDLR leading to increased risk for premature cardiovascular diseases. In this study, we have characterized seven LDLR variants, previously found in FH patients. Among them, p.Trp577Gly, p.lle624del and p.Phe800Glyfs*129 were classified as class 2, p.Cys155Tyr as class 3, p.Asn825Lys as class 4 and, p.Arg416Trp and p. Thr454Asn as class 5. These findings emphasize the importance of characterizing LDLR pathogenic variants to provide an indisputable FH diagnosis.

      Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/humu.22715

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cytochrome c oxidase (complex IV) levels are strongly reduced in cultured fibroblasts of a patient with a homozygous pathogenic variant in COA6 and severe hypertrophic neonatal cardiomyopathy. Copper supplementation partially recues complex IV deficiency in these cells providing a potential therapeutic lead for future patients.
