Clinical Sensitivity
Mutations in BMP1 appear to account for only a small portion of autosomal recessive OI, and due to limited publications, clinical sensitivity is currently unknown. The mutation detection rate by sequencing should be high, because the only two reported pathogenic mutations are detectable by sequencing (Valencia et al. 2014; Human Gene Mutation Database).

Clinical Features
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous skeletal disorder characterized by frequent bone fractures with or without minimal trauma. Clinical signs of OI can range from mild to severe. In addition to bone fractures, patients may have scoliosis, bowing of long bones, short stature, blue sclera, hearing loss, dentin defects, muscle weakness or joint laxity. The incidence is approximately 6-7/100,000 (Dijk et al. 2012). ~90% of clinically diagnosed OI is caused by mutations in the COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes, while ~10% is caused by mutations in the CRTAP, FKB10, LEPRE1, PLOD2, PPIB, SERPINF1, SERPINH1, SP7, WNT1, IFITM5, BMP1, TMEM38B and other undefined genes (Dijk et al. 2012; Valadares et al. 2014).
Genetics
Mutations in the BMP1 gene cause a rare severe form of autosomal recessive type XIII OI. The BMP1 protein coded by the BMP1 gene is a member of metalloproteases in the TGF-beta superfamily, and may contribute to dorsoventral patterning during early development by cleaving chordin. BMP1 also plays a role in the proteolytic activation of lysyl oxidase. To date, only two unique causative missense mutations (c.34G>C, p.Gly12Arg; c.747C>G, p.Phe249Leu) have been reported in BMP1 (Asharani et al. 2012; Martínez-Glez et al. 2012; Valencia et al. 2014; Human Gene Mutation Database).
Testing Strategy
BMP1 protein is coded by exons 1 to 15, and 17 to 21 of the BMP1 gene on chromosome 8p21.3. Testing involves PCR amplification from genomic DNA and bidirectional Sanger sequencing of the coding exons and ~20bp of adjacent noncoding sequences. We will also sequence any single exon (Test #100) or pair of exons (Test #200) in family members of patients with known mutations or to confirm research results.
Indications for Test
Candidates for this test are patients with symptoms consistent with autosomal recessive OI type VIII, who have no mutations in the COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes and the family members of patients who have known BMP1 mutations.

TEST METHODS

Bi-Directional Sanger Sequencing

Test Procedure

Nomenclature for sequence variants was from the Human Genome Variation Society (http://www.hgvs.org).  As required, DNA is extracted from the patient specimen.  PCR is used to amplify the indicated exons plus additional flanking non-coding sequence.  After cleaning of the PCR products, cycle sequencing is carried out using the ABI Big Dye Terminator v.3.0 kit.  Products are resolved by electrophoresis on an ABI 3730xl capillary sequencer.  In most cases, sequencing is performed in both forward and reverse directions; in some cases, sequencing is performed twice in either the forward or reverse directions.  In nearly all cases, the full coding region of each exon as well as 20 bases of non-coding DNA flanking the exon are sequenced.

Analytical Validity

As of March 2016, we compared 17.37 Mb of Sanger DNA sequence generated at PreventionGenetics to NextGen sequence generated in other labs. We detected only 4 errors in our Sanger sequences, and these were all due to allele dropout during PCR. For Proficiency Testing, both external and internal, in the 12 years of our lab operation we have Sanger sequenced roughly 8,800 PCR amplicons. Only one error has been identified, and this was due to sequence analysis error.

Our Sanger sequencing is capable of detecting virtually all nucleotide substitutions within the PCR amplicons. Similarly, we detect essentially all heterozygous or homozygous deletions within the amplicons. Homozygous deletions which overlap one or more PCR primer annealing sites are detectable as PCR failure. Heterozygous deletions which overlap one or more PCR primer annealing sites are usually not detected (see Analytical Limitations). All heterozygous insertions within the amplicons up to about 100 nucleotides in length appear to be detectable. Larger heterozygous insertions may not be detected. All homozygous insertions within the amplicons up to about 300 nucleotides in length appear to be detectable. Larger homozygous insertions may masquerade as homozygous deletions (PCR failure).

Analytical Limitations

In exons where our sequencing did not reveal any variation between the two alleles, we cannot be certain that we were able to PCR amplify both of the patient’s alleles. Occasionally, a patient may carry an allele which does not amplify, due for example to a deletion or a large insertion. In these cases, the report contains no information about the second allele.

Similarly, our sequencing tests have almost no power to detect duplications, triplications, etc. of the gene sequences.

In most cases, only the indicated exons and roughly 20 bp of flanking non-coding sequence on each side are analyzed. Test reports contain little or no information about other portions of the gene, including many regulatory regions.

In nearly all cases, we are unable to determine the phase of sequence variants. In particular, when we find two likely causative mutations for recessive disorders, we cannot be certain that the mutations are on different alleles.

Our ability to detect minor sequence variants, due for example to somatic mosaicism is limited. Sequence variants that are present in less than 50% of the patient’s nucleated cells may not be detected.

Runs of mononucleotide repeats (eg (A)n or (T)n) with n >8 in the reference sequence are generally not analyzed because of strand slippage during PCR and cycle sequencing.

Unless otherwise indicated, the sequence data that we report are based on DNA isolated from a specific tissue (usually leukocytes). Test reports contain no information about gene sequences in other tissues.
