Comment on publications: Cases with classical-like EDS with a variant in TNXB- to date 19 cases (from 15 families) PMID: 11642233,15733269,23768946,27582382,28306225

The 2017 International Classification of the Ehlers–Danlos Syndromes Malfait et al., 2017. PMID 28306229. Note there are difficulties in DNA testing due to the presence of the pseudogene (TNXA), which is more than 97% identical to the 30 end of TNXB (exons 32–44). With the only exception of exon 35, which partially shows a TNXB-specific sequence, exon and intron sequences in this region are identical or almost identical in both the gene and the pseudogene. This has implications both for sequencing and deletion/ duplication analysis.

Comment on publications: Added publications for evidence of gene-phenotype relationship to reflect current classification of EDS and The Ehlers–Danlos Syndromes, rare types. Malfait et al., 2017 (PMID:28306229), Brady et al., 2017 (PMID:28306225).

In relation to the EDS pathogenetic scheme, TNXB belongs to 'Disorders of structure and function of myomatrix, the interface between muscle and ECM'. The scheme regroups EDS subtypes for which the proteins, coded by the causative genes, function within the same pathway, and which are likely to have shared pathogenic mechanisms, based on current knowledge.
