Summaries for Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group L

OMIM : 56 Fanconi anemia (FA) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder that causes genomic instability. Characteristic clinical features include developmental abnormalities in major organ systems, early-onset bone marrow failure, and a high predisposition to cancer. The cellular hallmark of FA is hypersensitivity to DNA crosslinking agents and high frequency of chromosomal aberrations pointing to a defect in DNA repair (summary by Deakyne and Mazin, 2011). For additional general information and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of Fanconi anemia, see 227650. (614083)

MalaCards based summary : Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group L, also known as fanconi anemia complementation group l, is related to vacterl association and fanconi anemia, complementation group a. An important gene associated with Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group L is FANCL (FA Complementation Group L), and among its related pathways/superpathways are DNA damage_ATM/ATR regulation of G1/S checkpoint and Fanconi anemia pathway. The drugs Talazoparib and Silicon have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, bone marrow and breast, and related phenotypes are hypertelorism and short neck

Disease Ontology : 12 A Fanconi anemia that has material basis in homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the PHF9 gene on chromosome 2p16.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Fanconi anemia complementation group L: A disorder affecting all bone marrow elements and resulting in anemia, leukopenia and thrombopenia. It is associated with cardiac, renal and limb malformations, dermal pigmentary changes, and a predisposition to the development of malignancies. At the cellular level it is associated with hypersensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, chromosomal instability (increased chromosome breakage) and defective DNA repair.
