A novel splice site mutation in OTC gene of a female with ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency and her asymptomatic mosaic father
Ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency is an X-linked disease with a wide range of clinical severity and manifestation age both in males and females. Here, we describe a case which is caused by a novel c.78-1G[A splice site mutation, which on mRNA level leads to a 1-bp deletion and a frameshift (c.78delG (p.C27Vfs*11)) in OTC exon 2 in a young girl. The same mutation has been detected in a mosaicstate in her asymptomatic father.
