Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Dgcr6

  • Evolutionary studies using FISH mapping in several different species of ape combined with sequence analysis of DGCR6 in a number of different primate species indicate that the duplication is at least 12 million years old and may date back to before the divergence of Catarrhines from Platyrrhines, 35 mya [2].


  1. A mouse gene (Dgcr6) related to the Drosophila gonadal gene is expressed in early embryogenesis and is the homolog of a human gene deleted in DiGeorge syndrome. Lindsay, E.A., Baldini, A. Cytogenet. Cell Genet. (1997) [Pubmed]
  2. Two functional copies of the DGCR6 gene are present on human chromosome 22q11 due to a duplication of an ancestral locus. Edelmann, L., Stankiewicz, P., Spiteri, E., Pandita, R.K., Shaffer, L., Lupski, J.R., Morrow, B.E., Lupski, J. Genome Res. (2001) [Pubmed]
