Type IV Imprinting Defect

About 1% of individuals with PWS have neither a FISH identifiable 15q deletion nor UPD 15, but have DNA methylation abnormalities as if they had only maternally derived chromosome 15s. Up to 20% of these individuals (Type IVa) have a small deletion at the 5' end of the SNURF-SNRPN locus, involving its first exon.[13] This region is referred to as imprinting center (IC) because it seems that this locus takes part in the regulation of the imprinting in a large (about 2 Mbp) imprinted region on the proximal 15q. A small proportion of the patients with
