Abstract

Opitz syndrome (OS) is an inherited disorder characterized by midline defects including hypertelorism, hypospadias, lip-palate-laryngotracheal clefts and imperforate anus. We have identified a new gene on Xp22, MID1 (Midline 1), which is disrupted in an OS patient carrying an X-chromosome inversion and is also mutated in several OS families, MID1 encodes a member of the B-box family of proteins, which contain protein-protein interaction domains, including a RING finger, and are implicated in fundamental processes such as body axis patterning and control of cell proliferation. The association of MID1 with OS suggests an important role for this gene in midline development.
