Core Tip

Core tip: To screen for possible pathogenic loci in a patient with Gitelman syndrome by high-throughput exome sequencing and to explore the relationship between the genotype and phenotype. Sequencing showed a novel heterozygous missense mutation (a G to A transition at nucleotide 2582) in exon 22 of SLC12A3 gene, which resulted in a substitution of histidine for arginine at position 816 of the LRP1B protein and caused the occurrence of disease.
