Abstract

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited progressive retinal disease with a complex inheritance pattern affecting about 1 in 3,500 people worldwide. To date, a large number of sequence changes in the causal contributor genes of wide-spectrum heterogeneous RP were reported, including deletions, insertions, or substitutions that lead missense mutations or truncations. Here we present an association between the clinical presentations of adRP and sequence variants involving novel M216L mutation in the RHO gene together with nonsynonimous sequence changes R872H, N985Y, A1670T, S1691P, C2033Y, and synonimous Q1725Q with novel, N1521N, and T1733T SNPs in the RP1 gene of uncertain pathogenicity in a Turkish family with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa.
