Transcriptional regulator ATRX also known as ATP-dependent helicase ATRX. X-linked nuclear protein (XNP) or X-linked helicase II is a protein that is encoded by ATRX. Mutations in the ATRX gene are associated with an X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) syndrome most often accompanied by alpha-thalassemia (ATRX) syndrome.

The ATRX gene (35 exons) spans ~281 kb of genomic DNA and is located on Xq21.1, 77.5 Mb from the p-telomere. The P013-A2 probemix contains one probe for each exon of the gene and two probes for exons 9 and 35. In addition, 9 reference probes are included in this probemix, detecting several different chromosomal locations.

This SALSA® MLPA® probemix is designed to detect deletions/duplications of one or more sequences in the aforementioned ATRX gene in a DNA sample. Deletions of a probe’s recognition sequence on the X-chromosome will lead to a complete absence of the corresponding probe amplification product in males, whereas female heterozygotes are recognisable by a 35 50% reduction in relative peak height. Note that a mutation or polymorphism in the sequence detected by a probe can also cause a reduction in relative peak height, even when not located exactly on the ligation site! In addition, some probe signals are more sensitive to sample purity and small changes in experimental conditions. Therefore, deletions and duplications detected by MLPA should always be confirmed by other methods. Not all deletions and duplications detected by MLPA will be pathogenic; users should always verify the latest scientific literature when interpreting their findings. We have no information on what percentage of defects in these genes is caused by deletions/duplications of complete exons. Finally, note that most defects in this gene are expected to be small (point) mutations which will not be detected by this SALSA® MLPA® test.
