Molecular Analysis of Cystic Fibrosis Patients in Hungary - An Update to the Mutational Spectrum.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:In this study the authors present an update to the CFTR mutation profile in Hungary, utilizing data from a selected cohort of 45 cystic fibrosis (CF) patients from different regions of the country. METHODS:Depending on the preceding analysis, four different mutation detection methods were used. A commercial assay targeting the most common CF-causing mutations was performed as the first test followed by an allele specific PCR for CFTRdele2,3(21kb), Sanger sequencing and MLPA analysis of the coding region of the CFTR gene. RESULTS:In our recent study 27 different mutations were detected, including 2 novel ones (c.1037_1038insA and c.1394C>T). Besides F508del (c.1521_1523delCTT), the following mutations were found at a frequency of ? 4.0%: W1282X (c.3846G>A), N1303K (c.3909C>G), CFTRdele2,3(21kb) (c.54-5940_273+10250del21kb) and 2184insA (c.2052_2053insA). In addition, four mutations (G542X, Y1092X, 621+1G>T, and 2143delT) were found in more than one allele. CONCLUSIONS:The updated database of Hungarian mutations not only enables to increase the efficiency of the existing diagnostic approach, but also provides a further refined basis for the introduction of the molecular newborn screening (NBS) program in Hungary.
