But wait, there’s more: Autosomal dominant genes that also have autosomal recessive phenotypes with Kelly Radtke, PhD

  • As genetic testing becomes more common for the diagnosis and specialized treatment of adult-onset disorders, we are forced to confront the complexity that underlies many of the genes associated with these disorders. In this talk we will review examples of genes that cause adult-onset disorders when a mutation is monoallelic, but cause a different disorder, typically early-onset and multi-systemic, when mutations are biallelic. These examples will allow us to gain understanding that a positive genetic finding may also identify the individual as a carrier for a different genetic disorder. Examples from cancer predisposition, familial hypercholesterolemia, and peripheral neuropathy will be discussed. Ultimately, this knowledge will be applied to information available in public variant databases and variant summaries typically provided on clinical reports.
