CLSS; CMS17; LRP-4; LRP10; MEGF7; SOST2
The LRP4 gene is associated with autosomal recessive Cenani-Lenz syndactyly syndrome (CLSS) (MedGen UID: 395226). Additionally, the LRP4 gene has preliminary evidence supporting a correlation with sclerosteosis 2 (SOST2) (PMID: 21471202) and autosomal recessive congenital myasthenic syndrome 17 (CMS17) (PMID: 24234652).

Invitae tests that include this gene:
THe LRP4 gene encodes for the low density lipoprotein receptor. This protein is involved in the WNT1 signaling pathway, and plays a role in the formation and maintenance of the neuromuscular junction.
Invitae is a College of American Pathologists (CAP)-accredited and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified clinical diagnostic laboratory performing full-gene sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis using next-generation sequencing technology (NGS).
Our sequence analysis covers clinically important regions of each gene, including coding exons, +/- 10 base pairs of adjacent intronic sequence in the transcript listed below. In addition, analysis covers the select non-coding variants specifically defined in the table below. Any variants that fall outside these regions are not analyzed. Any specific limitations in the analysis of these genes are also listed in the table below.
Our analysis detects most intragenic deletions and duplications at single exon resolution. However, in rare situations, single-exon copy number events may not be analyzed due to inherent sequence properties or isolated reduction in data quality. If you are requesting the detection of a specific single-exon copy number variation, please contact Client Services before placing your order.
