Abstract

Lymphedema, lymphangiectasias, mental retardation and unusual facial characteristics define the autosomal recessive Hennekam syndrome. Homozygosity mapping identified a critical chromosomal region containing CCBE1, the human ortholog of a gene essential for lymphangiogenesis in zebrafish. Homozygous and compound heterozygous mutations in seven subjects paired with functional analysis in a zebrafish model identify CCBE1 as one of few genes causing primary generalized lymph-vessel dysplasia in humans.
