Non-synonymous sequence variants within the oxygen-dependent degradation domain of the HIF1A gene are not associated with pre-eclampsia in the Finnish population

Background Reduced placental perfusion predisposes to the maternal syndrome pre-eclampsia characterized by systemically reduced perfusion. Considerable data support the role of angiogenic factors in the development of the maternal syndrome. Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF-1) mediates the cellular responses to hypoxia e.g. by promoting angiogenesis. Methods Here we studied whether...

Do mitochondrial mutations cause recurrent miscarriage?

The cause of recurrent miscarriage (RM) can be identified in ∼50% of cases, whereas in others, unknown genetic factors are actively being sought. As mitochondrial functions, and therefore also the mitochondrial genome [mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)], have an important role in human development, through ATP production and participation in apoptosis, we aimed to study the role of mtDNA...

Variations of the Amnionless gene in recurrent spontaneous abortions

Recurrent spontaneous abortions (RSA) are estimated to affect 0.5–1% of couples trying to have a child. The causes of RSA are unknown in the majority of cases. This study aimed to determine whether homozygous mutations in the AMN gene in a fetus cause spontaneous abortions in humans, as they are known to cause spontaneous abortions in mice. The study was conducted by screening 40...
