In 7 affected members of a consanguineous Pakistani family segregating autosomal recessive noninflammatory peeling skin syndrome (PSS3; 616265), Cabral et al. (2012) identified a homozygous c.229C-T transition in exon 4 of the CHST8 gene, resulting in an arg77-to-trp (R77W) substitution at a conserved residue. The mutation was predicted to perturb hydrophilicity of the protein. The mutation, which was found by whole-exome sequencing and confirmed by Sanger sequencing, segregated with the disorder in the family and was not present in any public databases or in 400 chromosomes from 200 unrelated Pakistani controls. Cabral et al. (2012) cloned wildtype and R77W mutant CHST8 into an immortalized keratinocyte cell line and by Western blot analysis demonstrated lower levels of full-length GalNAc4ST1 in cells transfected with the mutant. The authors further showed that the mutant GalNAc4ST1 protein was not glycosylated and was therefore subject to increased degradation. By colorimetric assay, Cabral et al. (2012) showed decreased levels of total sulfated glycosaminoglycans in cells expressing mutant GalNAc4ST1 compared to those expressing wildtype GalNAc4ST1, suggesting loss of function of mutant GalNAc4ST1.
