This Month in the Journal

Transmission of FMR1 CGG Repeat, by Nolin et al.

Human PAF-2 in Zellweger Syndrome, by Fukuda et

al. (p. 1210)

(p. 1252)

Trinucleotide repeat sequences of >90 triplets at the

FMR1 locus generally undergo expansion as they are
transmitted from parent to child, with mental retardation seen in the offspring. Tracts of <40 triplets expand
only rarely, if at all. In this report, Nolin et al. examine
the fate of chromosomes in the "gray zone," those with
intermediate-length tracts. They note differences in stability of the tract length, depending on the sex of both
the parent of origin and the child. In addition, the degree
of instability seems to cluster in families, which suggests
an influence of other genetic or environmental factors
on trinucleotide transmission.

Zellweger syndrome results from metabolic defects in

lipid metabolism and oxidative biochemistry, consequences of the complete absence of peroxisomes. The
biosynthesis of peroxisomes has been studied extensively
in cultured cell systems, and a large number of mutant
human and hamster cell lines are available that lack this
organelle. Tsukamoto and colleagues previously reported cloning a rat gene for peroxisome assembly factor-2 (PAF-2), which restores peroxisome function in
one of these cell lines. Now the same group reports the
cloning and localization of the human homologue of
this gene. They find two mutations in PAF-2 in patients
with the group C form of Zellweger syndrome.

CBS Mutation, by Tsai et al. (p. 1262); and Letter to

the Editor, by Sperandeo et al. (p. 1391)

COL4A5 Mutations in Alport Syndrome, by

Knebelmann et al. (p. 1221)
The glomerular basement membrane (GBM), an extracellular structure required for normal kidney function,
owes its unusual filtration properties to its distinctive
composition. Mutations in genes for the type IV collagen
chains a3(IV), a4(IV), and a5(IV) lead to Alport syndrome (progressive renal failure and hearing loss, often
associated with ocular defects) as a result of alterations
in basement membranes. Here, Knebelmann et al. have
identified 64 mutations in the COL4AS gene in a group
of individuals with X-linked Alport syndrome. In some
of these individuals, the GBM does not stain for any of
these three collagen chains, consistent with an essential
role for ac5(IV) in forming the type IV collagen network
in this structure.

The cystathionine-p-synthase gene is implicated in homocystinuria, an inborn error in methionine biosynthesis and
a risk factor for heart disease. One variant of the gene, a
68-bp-insertion allele in a coding exon, has been reported
previously in a homocystinuric individual and was presumed, on the basis of conceptual translation of the sequence, to represent a weak or null allele. In this issue of
the Journal, however, two groups argue that this allele
represents a silent polymorphism common in the unaffected
population. Tsai et al. and Sperandeo et al. argue that
the introduction of the inserted sequence creates a splice
junction that cleanly excises the added sequence from the
transcript. Tsai et al. find that homozygotes who carry the
insertion allele express the enzyme at normal levels from
an mRNA species of normal size. Sperandeo et al. show
also that an unusual pre-mRNA species that includes the
68-bp sequence is present in the nuclei of a heterozygous
individual but that it fails to accumulate in the cytoplasm.
Together, the reports suggest that two mechanisms, alternative splicing and intranuclear RNA degradation, make the
insertion allele a silent change. The findings serve as a reminder that mutations identified at the level of genomic
sequence need not be associated with overt phenotypesor even with abnormal gene expression.

Age and Origin of HNPCC Mutations, by Moisio et al.

(p. 1243)
Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC) is
linked to genes encoding DNA repair genes, MLH1,
MSH2, PMS1, and PMS2. In Finns, a modern population that originated from a much smaller group 100
generations ago, HNPCC arises from mutations only in
the MLH1 gene. Now Moisio and colleagues show that
two distinct lesions in this gene account for all known
Finnish cases, and they define highly conserved haplotypes associated with each of these mutations. The degree of linkage disequilibrium for each haplotype allows
the authors to reconstruct the history of the two disease
alleles in the Finnish population.

Heteroplasmic Point Mutations in mtDNA, by Bendall

et al. (p. 1276)

The degree of heteroplasmy in normal individuals bears

both on the details of mitochondrial transmission at
oogenesis and on questions of human evolution and divergence. Here, Bendall et al. examine the distribution
of mtDNA point mutations in a set of 180 healthy twins
and their families. Using primer-extension analysis and
sequencing of cloned fragments, they show that most of
the people studied are free of detectable heteroplasmy.

families. They suggest that this disease displays anticipation, with earlier age at onset and more rapid progression
in later generations, particularly when the disease allele is
transmitted paternally. These workers also confirm the
earlier mapping of the disorder to the SCA7 locus on chromosome 3p and narrow the linkage to a region of 5 cM
contained entirely in a single 660-kb YAC clone. The fact
that this small physical region of the chromosome represents such a significant distance along a recombinational
map suggests that a hot spot for meiotic recombination
resides in or near SCA7. For a discussion of recombinational hot spots, see the editorial by Robinson (p. 1175).

Four of the twin pairs do show significant heteroplasmy,

with concordant levels of the variant sequences between
MZ twins. Because the extent of heteroplasmy varies
among the offspring of individual mothers in the study,
the authors suggest that the bottleneck that restricts mitochondrial transmission in each ovum normally falls
within a specified size range but may be quite wide in
certain instances. These results raise anew the issue of
how bottleneck size is established.
EGF Exclusion and Mapping Rieger Syndrome Locus,
by Semina et al. (p. 1288); and Closing in on the
Rieger Syndrome Gene, by Datson et al. (p. 1297)
Two papers in this issue of the Journal provide a satisfying example of a cooperative effort using complementary approaches to map a gene. Previous work had
linked Rieger syndrome, a dominant disorder of eye and
tooth development, to 4q25, in the vicinity of epidermal
growth factor (EGF), a plausible candidate gene. Now,
however, Semina and colleagues exclude this locus both
by studying the structure of EGF exons by SSCP and by
defining reciprocal translocation breakpoints in Rieger
patients. The region affected by the two breakpoints
narrows the search for the Rieger syndrome gene to - 50
kb. Similarly, Datson and colleagues, making use of the
same patients' chromosomes, develop a YAC-based,
cosmid-based contig of the candidate region. Using the
fiberFISH technique on cell lines bearing the translocations, they identify a cosmid that carries the 50-kb region with the two translocation breakpoints. At the
1996 ASHG meeting, these same groups reported the
cloning of the Reiger gene, which encodes a novel homeodomain-containing protein.
Iridogoniodysgenesis Maps to 6p25, by Mears et al.

mtDNA in Linguistic Isolates, by Stenico et al.

(p. 1363)
Stenico et al. report on mtDNA sequence diversity in
isolated populations in the Italian Alps. Among Europeans in general, mtDNA polymorphisms tend to be diverse within single populations, but variability in the
overall distribution of polymorphisms among groups is
modest. This holds true among these Alpine peoples as
well, with the two exceptions documented here. The
Mocheni, speakers of a language related to an early
Bavarian dialect, are clearly a distinct group by this measure. Speakers of Ladin, a Romance language, likewise
carry polymorphisms that are distinct from the usual
European repertoire. Ladin speakers are also unusual
in that they show little intragroup variability, whereas
speakers of Romansch, a language closely allied with
Ladin, fall within the general European pattern of
mtDNA diversity. The authors discuss their results in
light of anthropological and historical evidence on the
peopling of the Alps.

Using DSPs to Map Quantitative Traits, by Rogus and

Krolewski (p. 1376)
Sib-pair analysis, a powerful statistical tool in gene mapping, can be conducted in either of two ways. In affectedsib-pair analysis (ASP), shared haplotypes are used to
identify loci likely to be linked to the gene of interest. In
discordant-sib-pair (DSP) analysis, one uses the same data
to exclude the possibility of linkage. In this paper, Rogus
and Krolewski discuss factors that can make DSP analysis
more powerful than ASP analysis. They consider issues of
penetrance, the mode of transmission, and the possibility
of nongenetic phenocopies of the trait. The authors argue
that linkage of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus may
be a suitable subject for DSP analysis.

Autosomal dominant iridogoniodysgenesis anomaly

(IGDA) is an eye disorder that arises from abnormal
development of neural crest cells and leads to malformation of one or more ocular tissues. Here, Mears et al.
present linkage analysis of IGDA in two families. After
excluding a number of candidate genes and performing
a genomewide scan for linkage, they identify a locus at
6p25 that is tightly linked to the disorder. Since this
same region is affected in other disorders of eye morphogenesis, it seems likely that a gene or genes near this
locus play a critical role in neural crest growth or differentiation in the developing eye.
Refinement of the SCA7 Locus, by David et al.

Information for Contributors

The American Journal of Human Genetics is a record of

research and review relating to heredity in humans; to the
applications of genetic principles in medicine, psychology, anthropology, and social services; and to areas of molecular and
cell biology relevant to human genetics. It is published
monthly. The Journal is owned and controlled by The American Society of Human Genetics and is edited, in conjunction
with the publisher, by a staff appointed by the Board of Directors of the Society.
Editorial Policy
The Journal welcomes submissions of original articles on
timely subjects concerning all aspects of human genetics, as
well as letters commenting on material previously published
in the Journal. Review articles, editorials, and book reviews
usually are solicited by the editor. The Journal does not publish
descriptions of single mutations unless the mutation is of unusual significance. Membership in The American Society of
Human Genetics is not a prerequisite for publication in the
Journal. Papers will be considered for publication on condition
that they are not currently under consideration by any other
publication and that no portion of them has been published
will be considered for appropriateness to the Journal by the editor in consultation with
the editorial board. Those considered appropriate will be reviewed by two or more external reviewers or members of the
editorial board, and those that are not will be returned to the
authors. Authors are requested to suggest appropriate referees.
Manuscripts will be judged on their value as original contributions to the field and their overall presentation.
* Return of manuscripts. Two copies of manuscripts not accepted for publication will be returned to the author, together
with all original figures, whenever possible. Manuscripts usually will not be returned if they are to be revised and reconsidered.
* Accelerated publication. In some circumstances and at the
editor's discretion, authors of accepted manuscripts will be
offered "accelerated" publication. In these cases authors agree
to forgo the opportunity to read page proofs, in order to expedite publication.
* Editing. Manuscripts will be edited to conform to Journal
style, to correct spelling and grammar where necessary, and
* Review process. Manuscripts

to improve conciseness, clarity, and precision of expression.

Such editorial changes will be identified on the page proofs.
* Publication costs. Authors will be charged $20.00 per
printed Journal page or portion thereof for papers published,
except for invited contributions. Each Journal page contains
approximately 800 words. The editor may waive page charges
in cases of hardship. Authors requesting such waiver must send
to the editor a letter explaining the circumstances. Authors also
will be charged for printing color figures (see Illustrations,

* Copyright agreement. All authors of all manuscripts accepted for publication must sign an agreement transferring
copyright to The American Society of Human Genetics. Corresponding authors must assume responsibility for obtaining the
signatures of all coauthors. Material published in the Journal
may not be reproduced or published elsewhere without written
consent of the Society and the publisher. Requests for such
permission should be addressed to the editor.
* Research materials. It is assumed that authors whose research is published in the Journal will make cell lines, antibodies, cloned DNA sequences, and similar materials available to
other investigators in noncommercial institutions so as to permit replication of the reported work.
* Page proofs. Except for articles granted accelerated publication, page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for
correction of typographical errors only. Alterations other than
corrections of typographical errors will be billed to the authors
at the rate of $2.25 per line. Corresponding authors are responsible for returning corrected page proofs by the designated
* Reprints. The corresponding author will receive an order
form for reprints, along with the page proofs.

knowledged by fax or mail, and a reference number will be

assigned to the paper.

* Cover letter. Manuscripts should be accompanied by a letter

from the author who will be responsible for correspondence
regarding the manuscript as well as for communications
among authors regarding revisions and approval of proofs.
The letter should indicate the category of manuscript being
submitted (e.g., original article, letter, review, etc.), suggested
referees, and information on related prior or concurrent submissions to other publications. It is essential to include the
telephone and fax numbers, direct mailing address, and E-mail
address, if any, of the corresponding author.
* Related manuscripts. Please submit three copies of any related papers by any of the authors that have been submitted
elsewhere or that are in press. Those that have been submitted
may be cited in the text as "unpublished data" but not listed
in the references section. Those that have been accepted for
publication and are cited in the text should be listed in the
references section as "in press" together with the name of the
Manuscript Preparation
Manuscripts must be written in English. All components
(including references, tables, and figure legends) must be typed
double spaced on one side of the paper, preferably on heavyweight bond paper, using 12-point type. Manuscripts that are
not fully double spaced throughout will not be sent out for
review. Manuscripts should be produced using a laser printer,
high-quality dot-matrix printer, or carbon ribbon. There must
be a 1 /2-inch margin on all four sides of each page. Do not
justify the right margin. Begin each manuscript component on
a separate page, and arrange components in the following
order: title page, summary (abstract), text, acknowledgments,
appendixes (if any), references, tables, and figure legends.
Number all pages consecutively in the upper-right-hand corner, beginning with the title page.

* Key words. On a separate, unnumbered page, list up to six

key words that describe the paper for indexing purposes.
* Title page. This page should contain a concise title; a running title of no more than 40 characters (including spaces);
the names and institutional affiliations of all authors at the
time of the study (and present affiliations if changed); and
the corresponding author's name, complete current mailing
address, telephone number, and fax number.
* Summary (abstract). The summary should state the purpose
of the study, the basic procedures and analytical methods, the
findings, and the principal conclusions. The summary must
not exceed 275 words.
* Text. The text should be as concise as possible and should
be organized into the following sections: Introduction, Material and Methods (or Subjects and Methods), Results, and
Discussion. Some manuscripts may require different formats
appropriate to their content. Brief subheadings may be used
where necessary.
The Introduction should summarize the rationale for the
study without reviewing the subject extensively. Using the past
tense, describe the selection of subjects and identify the meth-

ods, apparatus, and procedures in detail. Provide references

for established methods and brief descriptions of those that
are not well known. Describe any new or modified methods
used, including reasons for their use and evaluations of their
Present results in logical sequence in the text, tables, and
illustrations. Do not repeat in the text all the data that appear
in the tables and illustrations. Detailed results of statistical
analyses may be presented as an appendix.
* Human Subjects. If the manuscript reports results of studies
of human subjects or materials obtained from human subjects,
state in the Material and Methods section that the study was
approved by the appropriate institutional review board and/or
that appropriate informed consent was obtained from human
subjects. Include copies of signed consent forms from identifiable persons appearing in any photographs submitted with the
* Acknowledgments. Acknowledge those who have made substantive contributions to the study reported, as well as the
institution(s) or grant sponsor(s) that supported the research.
* References. Authors must assume responsibility for the accuracy of reference citations.
Text. Reference citations in the text, tables, or figure legends
should be in parentheses and include author name(s) and year
of publication. List two or more works in the same citation
in chronological order and separated by semicolons. When
citing a work by three or more authors, write the first author's
name followed by "et al." Examples: (Barker et al. 1984)
(Goldstein and Brown 1983) (Dayhoff 1978; Barker et al.
References section. References should be arranged alphabetically by author. References by the same author(s) should be
arranged chronologically. List the names of up to seven authors for any reference plus "et al" if there are more than
seven authors.

* Tables. Type each table double spaced on a separate page.
Exceptionally large tables and pedigree diagrams should be
constructed in sections whenever possible. Number tables consecutively and give each a brief title. Give each column a short
heading. Footnotes should be used to explain all nonstandard
abbreviations that are used in each table and should be denoted by letter. Titles and footnotes should be included with
the tables themselves and not on a separate page. It is essential
that all lines of tables be fully double spaced, including titles,
column headings, and footnotes. Omit vertical and horizontal
lines from tables. Do not submit tables as photographs. See
The Chicago Manual of Style (14th ed., University of Chicago

quality and must be submitted in triplicate (one set of figures
with each copy of the manuscript). All halftone figures must
be submitted as glossy photographs. All black-and-white line
drawings must also be submitted as glossy photographs. Because the figures carry the weight of presentation of the scientific data and are carefully evaluated by reviewers, it is important that authors take great care in their preparation and

165 mm), or, in rare cases, broadside (i.e., sideways on the
page; approximately 225 mm). The size of the figure should
be commensurate with the information contained. The figures
may be prepared for publication size (in which case, 5 x 7
inch photographs should be submitted for reviewers) or in a
size convenient to the author; in the latter case, the lettering
on the figures must be such that, when the figure is reduced
to its final size, the smallest letter (e.g., b, d, or f) will be no
less than 2.0 mm in height. Magnification in micrographs may
be indicated either by a micron bar or in the legend.
All lettering in the figure must be of the same typeface, and
there should not be substantial differences in type size. Only
sans-serif typefaces should be used. Explanation of symbols
(i.e., the key) should be included within the figure or, if necessary, may be in the legend. The author is responsible both for
cropping and for inserting any letters serving as panel/section

All figures should be labeled

on the back to indicate the

name of the first author, the figure number, and the top of the

Human subjects. A signed consent form must accompany
any photograph of a live-born and/or recognizable human subject that is submitted with a manuscript.

Color illustrations. Authors are required to pay for the printing of any color figures and will be asked to sign an agreement
to do so. Each page containing a color figure will incur a
charge of $1,000-$2,000; a preliminary estimate of the total
cost will be provided on request at the time of acceptance of
the manuscript.
* Figure Legends. These should be double spaced, beginning
on a separate page. The legend should describe the illustration
so that it can be understood apart from the text and should
explain any labels or symbols used in the figure.

Style Guidelines
For questions of style, refer to The Chicago Manual of Style
(cited above). The preferred or first spelling of a word in Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (10th ed., MerriamWebster, Springfield, MA), is used by the Journal. Mathematical equations must be typed and spaced as they should appear
in print. Use metric or other internationally accepted units for
all quantitative measurements.
* Genetic nomenclature and notation. For human genes, use
genetic notation and symbols approved by Human Gene Mapping (HGM). See Shows et al., "Guidelines for Human Gene
Nomenclature" (Cytogenet. Cell Genet. 46:11-28, 1987);
McAlpine et al., "The 1988 Catalog of Mapped Genes and
Report of the Nomenclature Committee" (Cytogenet. Cell
Genet. 49:4-38, 1988); and Kidd et al. "Report of the Committee on Human Gene Mapping by Recombinant DNA Techniques" (Cytogenet. Cell Genet. 49:132-218, 1988). Symbols
for human genes not included in the above may be obtained
from P. J. McAlpine (cochair, HGM Nomenclature Committee), Department of Human Genetics, University of Manitoba,
