With Xenon he has also identified genes associated with rare disorders such as Tangier disease, juvenile hemochromatosis and congenital insensitivity to pain.
In Tangier disease a mutation produces a defective transport protein and almost no HDL is produced.
Tangier disease is caused by mutations in the gene encoding ATP-binding cassette transporter 1.
Deleterious mutations, when present in both alleles in the ABCA1 gene, have been found to be the cause of Tangier disease (TD), which is characterized by an almost complete absence of serum HDL-C (<70 mg/L) (4-6).
We discovered last year that the cause of the extraordinarily low levels of HDL seen in patients with the genetic disorder, Tangier disease, is a defect in the gene coding for ABC1," said David Wade, Ph.
Despite the recent characterization of ABCA1 mutations as the cause of Tangier disease (TD) and familial hypoalphalipoproteinemia (2-5), there have been little data evaluating clinical measures of atherosclerosis in individuals with identified defects in ABCA1.
