Abstract

Disorders of growth and pubertal development in humans are under a strong genetic influence, including models of classic mendelian inheritance, as well as oligogenic and polygenic inheritance. New genetic tools have been recently developed, allowing simultaneous investigation of different genes and, in some cases, screening of the complete genome, in diseases with a genetic basis. The primary aim of this project is to develop and apply new molecular technologies in the investigation of disorders of growth and pubertal development. The project is divided in 2 modules, including 8 subprojects in total. The following developmental disorders will be studied: central precocious puberty, isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, hypopituitarism, short stature associated with low weight and/or stature for gestational age and idiopathic short stature. In all of these conditions there are clear evidences of a strong genetic component involving genes yet to be revealed. The use of these new tools will allow an important advancement in the diagnosis, follow up and treatment of affected patients. The Endocrinology Development Unit of "Hospital das Clínicas" of São Paulo University is a national reference center for disorders of growth and development. Well established cohorts are already organized for each of the included conditions, allowing the rapid initiation of the studies. The research strategy will be to add new technologies to the traditional approach of candidate gene-sequencing, such as comparative genomic hybridization array for submicroscopic deletions or duplications screening, followed by new generation sequencing of specific target regions or exomic sequencing in selected cases (families with classic Mendelian pattern of inheritance or consanguineous families). After analysis of the preliminary data, new genes will be investigated in the entire cohort. With this approach we intend to develop new methodologies in order to identify new genes and physiologic pathways involved in the etiopathogenesis of the studied conditions and to form well trained researches in these new platforms. The proposed project is very important for its innovative character, advancement in the study of monogenic diseases and in the genotype-phenotype characterization. (AU)
