Copy number determination of steroid 21-hydroxylase gene for the genetic testing of congenital adrenal hyperplasia using real-time quantitative PCR

Doleschall Marton , Darvasi Otto , Igaz Peter , Patocs Attila

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is usually caused by the mutations of steroid 21-hydroxylase gene (CYP21A2). CYP21A2 resides in RCCX copy number variation (CNV), and the genomic structure of RCCX CNV creates difficulties in the genetic testing of CAH. An RCCX CNV allele on one chromosome can carry CYP21A2 in various numbers. Homozygous deletion of complete CYP21A2 results in most severe form of CAH, whereas an additional and intact ...
