Mendelian Inheritance in Man

A database begun in the early 1960s by Dr VA McKusick as a catalog of mendelian traits and disorders. 12 paper editions were published between 1966 and 1998. The online version, OMIM, was created in the mid-1980s and went live on the web in 1995.

Infantile malignant osteopetrosis (arOP; ARO; OMIM 259700) is an autosomal recessive disease manifesting with anaemia, thrombocytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, visual impairment due to optic atrophy and deafness.
MetaCore enables concurrent visualization and analysis of gene expression, proteomics and metabolomics data in multiple formats including LocusLink, Genbank, RefSeq, All Affymetrix arrays tags, OMIM, Unigene, SwissProt as well as other approved gene symbol IDs.
A global knowledge base of variant associations--that proactively collects genomic data from more than 10 sources including GeneReviews, GeneTests, NCBI, dbSNP, OMIM, COSMIC, HGMD, SIFT, Polyphen, as well as knowledge specific to the laboratory's guidelines and protocols.
Other clinical syndromes rarely related to mutations in the pol [gamma] complex are mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy syndrome (MNGIE, OMIM 603041), (76,77) Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, (78-80) male infertility, testicular cancer, idiopathic parkinsonism, premature ovarian failure and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors toxicity in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus.
1 The high probe density provides broad coverage of constitutional, cancer, OMIM and RefSeq genes on a single array and allows detection of gene-level, copy-neutral LOH, uniparental isodisomy, and regions identical by descent.
It remains to be seen if this method can consistently differentiate GM1 gangliosidosis (OMIM #230500) from mucopolysaccharidosis type IVB (Morquio disease, OMIM #253010) and Sandhoff disease (OMIM #268800) from Tay-Sachs disease due to AB and B1 variants (OMIM #272750 and #272800), as well as different subtypes of Gaucher disease (OMIM #230800, #230900, #230100, and others).

On the basis of these data, we used a comprehensive in silico approach to determine connections of different disease entities and associations (Table 2, OMIM [Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man]) with a common denominator glomerular cyst/GCK.
The current report on HCRTR2 addresses the above problem: this report is a compilation of manually curated information that is derived from the following process: - Information is extracted from: -- Public domain databases such as SwissProt, UniProt, Entrez PubMed, OMIM, etc -- In-house databases -- Curated information from journal articles and reviews -- Chemistry information from patents -- Company websites
