Summary. An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; POLYDACTYLY; OBESITY; MENTAL RETARDATION; hypogenitalism; renal dysplasia; and short stature. This syndrome has been distinguished as a separate entity from LAURENCE-MOON SYNDROME. (From J Med Genet 1997 Feb;34 (2):92-8) [from MeSH Bardet-Biedls syndrom ingår i en grupp sjukdomar som kallas ciliopatier och orsakas av en skada i de primära cilierna. En primär cilie är ett orörligt utskott, ett slags antenn på cellytan som samordnar många funktioner som är av betydelse för cellfunktioner som rörelse, syn, känsel och cellsignalering
Bardet‐Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare genetic disorder that severely inhibits primary cilia function. BBS is typified by obesity in adulthood, but pediatric weight patterns, and thus optimal periods of intervention, are poorly understood. Objectives. To examine body mass differences by age, gender, and genotype in children and adolescents with BBS Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an inherited condition that affects many parts of the body. People with this syndrome have progressive visual impairment due to cone-rod dystrophy ; extra fingers or toes ( polydactyly ); truncal obesity; decreased function of the male gonads ( hypogonadism ); kidney abnormalities; and learning difficulties. [1 Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition most commonly due to a mutation in the BBS1 gene. It results in pigmentary retinopathy (usually pigment mottling without bone-spicule-like pigmentation) with macular atrophy and vascular attenuation as seen in these photos Bardet-Biedl syndrome 12 protein, truncated Bardet-Biedl syndrome 12 protein.

Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive multisystem disorder caused by defects in genes encoding for proteins that localize to the primary cilium/basal body complex. Twenty-one disease-causing genes have been identified to date. It is one of the most well-studied conditions in the family Bardet-Biedl syndrome is a disorder that affects many parts of the body. The signs and symptoms of this condition vary among affected individuals, even among members of the same family. Vision loss is one of the major features of Bardet-Biedl syndrome. Loss of vision occurs as the light-sensing tissue at the back of the eye ( the retina) gradually.

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an autosomal recessive multi-system disorder consisting of obesity, retinal degeneration, cognitive impairment, genitourinary tract malformations and polydactyly. Polycystic kidneys are the most likely cause of premature death from the syndrome, followed by complications caused by obesity, including type II diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolaemia Down syndrome (incidence 1:700-800) belongs to the most frequent syndromes associated with mental retardation. The paper presents a case report of genetically determined ciliopathy - Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS), where the symptoms include mental retardation Bardet‐Biedl syndrome (BBS) is an autosomal recessive pleiotropic disorder of the primary cilia that leads to severe visual loss in the teenage years. Approximately 80% of BBS cases are explained by mutations in one of the 21 identified genes. Documented causative mutation types include missense,.
. Secondary features include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. Bardet-Biedl syndrome inheritance is autosomal recessive, but three mutated alleles (two at one locus, and a third at a second. LNMS was later termed Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome because of similarities with Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS). It is often considered, but still debated, whether BBS is a distinct condition. Arguments are based on differences in the underlying genetic causes of these the disorders (see Related Disorders)
In previous years, Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome (LMBBS) was a term used to describe an inherited genetic condition that affected approximately 1 in 100,000 babies born. It was named after the four doctors who initially described the symptoms of the syndrome Bardet-Biedl syndrome is similar to Laurence-Moon syndrome, and they have been thought to be one and the same at times. The relationship between these two syndromes is still being studied. How common is Bardet-Biedl Syndrome, BBS1-related? Bardet-Biedl syndrome is rare, affecting about 1 in 100,000 in North America and 1 in 125,000 in Europe

Materials and Methods . Two families were recruited in this study. Family A was a four-generation family with four affected and 15 unaffected members participating in the study, and family B was a. Description: Homo sapiens Bardet-Biedl syndrome 9 (BBS9), transcript variant 4, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_001033605) RefSeq Summary (NM_001033605): This gene is downregulated by parathyroid hormone in osteoblastic cells, and therefore is thought to be involved in parathyroid hormone action in bones. The exact function of this gene has not yet been determined
Description: Homo sapiens Bardet-Biedl syndrome 12 (BBS12), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_001178007) RefSeq Summary (NM_001178007): The protein encoded by this gene is part of a complex that is involved in membrane trafficking. The encoded protein is a molecular chaperone that aids in protein folding upon ATP hydrolysis Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS; MIM 209900) is a multi-system autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by rod-cone dystrophy, dystrophic extremities, central obesity, hypogonadism, learning difficulties and renal dysplasia The Bardet-Biedl syndrome is characterized by five main features: obesity, polydactyly, pigmen- tary retinopathy, hypogonadism and subnormal intelligence. It was formerly known as the Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome, but Franceschetti and Klein' drew attention to the fact that Laurence and Moon described Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS), also known as Laurence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome (LMBBS), has long been regarded as an autosomal recessive condition but recent evidence now points to a more complex pattern of inheritance. 1- 3 Prevalence rates range from 1 in 100 000 to 1 in 160 000, 4- 6 although there are communities in which BBS appears to be more common as a result of consanguinity. 3, 7 BBS is a heterogeneous genetic condition with six gene loci mapped to date: 11q13 (BBS1. . 2 Nearly a third of children suffering from BBS have associated behavioural problems, although these are rarely the presenting symptoms.
Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare inherited, clinically and genetically heterogeneous, multisystemic ciliopathy with various primary and secondary clinical manifestations .
