Genome-level sequencing can overcome these complications. Extreme childhood phenotypes are promising candidates for new Mendelian traits. One example is early onset hypertension, a rare form of a global cause of morbidity and mortality. We performed exome sequencing fzllo 40 unrelated subjects with hypertension due to primary aldosteronism by age Two mutations were demonstrated to be de novo events, and all mutations occurred independently.

This mutation explains disease pathogenesis and provides new insight into mechanisms mediating aldosterone production and hypertension. The consequence of mutations to the large majority of human genes is unknown. Most mutations that are currently known were discovered by tracing their effects through families. This allows the locations of mutations to be pinpointed on chromosomes—the structures that genetic material is packaged into. Other mutations are harder to trace because individuals with these mutations may develop very different signs and symptoms, or not develop clinical abnormalities at all.
Alternatively, a trait may appear sporadically in a family because the mutation arises anew in the affected subject. Recently developed technologies that allow scientists to rapidly sequence all the gene-encoding regions of an individual’s DNA—their genome—offer a new way to identify harmful genetic variants.
Comparing the genomes of individuals with rare disorders can reveal if the individuals share any genetic mutations in common that could cause their symptoms. In this form of the disease, high blood pressure is caused by the adrenal glands above the kidneys producing too much of a hormone called aldosterone. Some genetic causes of this form of the disease have already been identified.
Now, Scholl et al. Two of the individuals were the first in their families to develop this mutation, while three others inherited it.

Some of the family members with this mutation had hypertension and some did not. The mutation is in a gene that encodes a type of calcium channel—a protein found in the membrane that surrounds cells, and which can open and close to control the amount of calcium in the cell.
This particular calcium channel is abundant in the cells of the adrenal gland.
This increases the number of calcium ions that move into the cell, which causes the adrenal gland to produce more aldosterone. These new insights have provided a new way of diagnosing early-onset hypertension, and suggest that targeting calcium channels could help to develop new treatments for this disease. In the setting of volume depletion, aldosterone signaling in renal and intestinal epithelia produces increased salt re absorption, promoting restoration of intravascular volume; in hyperkalemia, aldosterone promotes increased potassium secretion, restoring electrolyte balance.
Pathological secretion of aldosterone in the absence of normal physiological stimuli leads to primary aldosteronism PAproducing increased salt re absorption and hypertension. About half of these patients have adrenal aldosterone-producing adenomas APAs. Germline mutations in three genes have been shown to cause rare Mendelian forms of early-onset PA.
Gene fusions leading to constitutive expression of aldosterone synthase encoded by CYP11B2 halzbi, a rate-limiting enzyme in aldosterone biosynthesis, cause Comppleto Aldosteronism GRA Lifton et al.
These latter patients also have seizures, neurodevelopmental and neuromuscular abnormalities owing to gain of function effects of CACNA1D in the nervous system Scholl et al.
Families with GRA often have comp,eto affected subjects and were identified by linkage analysis in extended fxllo Lifton et al. The causes of PA in many patients remain undetermined. Although Mendelian inheritance has been suggested by recurrence of PA in some kindreds without mutations in known genes Stowasser et al.
The advent of next-generation sequencing, allowing the search for recurrent mutations or greater burden of rare variants in individual genes than expected by chance, can permit identification of such loci in the absence of classical segregation patterns. Very rare phenotypes, such as childhood PA, are promising candidates for such traits.
Using exome sequencing, we here identify five independent occurrences of the identical mutation in CACNA1H among 40 subjects with unexplained PA in childhood. Electrophysiology demonstrates that this variant causes reduced inactivation and a shift of activation to more hyperpolarized potentials, effects inferred to produce increased calcium influx and PA.
Clinical details are shown in Supplementary file 1A. All subjects had hypertension with elevated aldosterone levels despite low plasma hlaabi activity PRA. None of the subjects studied were the offspring of consanguineous union. DNA from peripheral blood was subjected to exome fsllo and sequencing; mean coverage was 73 independent reads per targeted base Supplementary file 1B. There was only one result that surpassed genome-level significance: This variant is absent among more thanalleles sequenced from diverse populations in the Exome Aggregation Consortium Exome Aggregation Consortiumand Yale databases.
Sanger sequencing in each case confirmed the heterozygous variant Figure 1A. Studied subjects with early-onset hypertension are shown as black filled symbols, and subjects with early-onset hypertension by family history K or low renin with normal blood pressure K are shown as grey filled symbols. Corresponding Sanger sequencing results for selected subjects are depicted to the right.
B Transmembrane structure of Ca V 3. These channels have four internal homologous repeats I—IVeach with six transmembrane segments S1—S6 and a membrane-associated loop between the pore-forming S5 and S6 segments. The S6 segment, including Met, is virtually completely conserved highlighted in yellow among orthologs and all paralogs that are activated by small changes in membrane potential l, low voltage-activated but not those activated by large changes h, high voltage-activated.
M is part of the Met-Phe-Val sequence that is implicated in rapid channel inactivation Marksteiner et al.
PCA of subjects referred for PA. Individuals in the cohort orange crosses mostly cluster with HapMap subjects of European and African American subjects. Source files are available in Figure 1—source data 1. Three index cases were of European ancestry, one Hispanic, and one African American by self-report and principal component analysis Figure 1—figure supplement 1. Members of the extended families were recruited, and sequencing of these subjects demonstrated that CACNA1H MV was a de novo mutation absent in the biological parents in both the index case of kindredand in the affected mother of the index case in kindred Figure 1.
Analysis of highly polymorphic markers confirmed paternity and maternity in both kindreds Supplementary file 1G. In the remaining three kindreds, the variant was transmitted to the index case from a parent, and samples from grandparents were not available for further analysis of transmission Figure 1. A more conservative analysis identifying homozygous discordant SNPs eliminating inference of haplotypes by phasing still limited the shared haplotype to less than These findings indicate that the CACNA1H MV mutation in these three kindreds has not been inherited from a recent common ancestor, and has either arisen independently or has been inherited from an extremely remote common ancestor.
The latter possibility is extremely unlikely given the absence of this mutation in more thanalleles studied to date. Combined, the probability of finding these five instances of the identical variant by chance is conservatively estimated to be 3. We performed immunohistochemistry with two different antibodies specific for the encoded channel protein Ca V 3. These results are consistent with prior in situ hybridization and electrophysiological studies of rodent and bovine glomerulosa Schrier et al.
Sections of normal human adrenal are shown. C denotes adrenal capsule; G, glomerulosa; F, fasciculata. A Normal adrenal gland stained with hematoxylin and an antibody to Ca V 3. B Higher power image of adrenal in panel A. CD Absence of staining after preincubation of the antibody with the antigenic peptide, demonstrating specificity. The results demonstrate expression of Ca V 3.
All presented with hypertension by age 10 and had persistent inappropriate elevation of serum aldosterone with suppressed PRA and high aldosterone: PRA ratio, indicative of autonomous adrenal aldosterone production Table 1. Adrenal imaging by computed tomography, magnetic resonance or ultrasound showed no evidence of mass or hyperplasia at the time of presentation.
There were no other recurrent or distinctive features of the index cases, specifically no history of seizures, neurologic or neuromuscular disorders as found in patients with CACNA1D mutations Scholl et al. Additional details are presented in Appendix 1. Of these five, three were diagnosed with early severe hypertension while two were not, and in fact were normotensive as adults Appendix 1 and Supplementary file 1I.
For example, subject was diagnosed with severe hypertension and PA at age 17; her hypertension was difficult to control, leading to unilateral adrenalectomy at age Her hypertension nonetheless recurred, requiring reinstitution of treatment.
Interestingly, the histology of her adrenal gland showed striking microscopic hyperplasia. Two mutation carriers and were normotensive as adults and had not been diagnosed as hypertensive in childhood; in subjectPRA was at the lower limit of normal with normal aldosterone level, while PRA and aldosterone levels were normal in Supplementary file 1I.
C denotes adrenal capsule; G, glomerulosa; F, fasciculata; R, reticularis; M, medulla. A Low power image stained with hematoxylin and eosin. D Same adrenal gland stained with hematoxylin and antibody to Ca V 3. EFhigher power images stained with second antibody to Ca V 3. Blood samples were drawn on the same day, and values were determined in the same laboratory except forin whom values are pre-adrenalectomy at age See Figure 1 for relationships.
To explore the specificity of this mutation for early-onset PA, we performed targeted Sanger sequencing for the CACNA1H MV variant in germline DNA of additional unrelated subjects, comprising subjects with PA diagnosed after age 10 years, 96 with hypertension and bilateral adrenal hyperplasia, and referred for potential genetic causes of hypertension without evidence of PA. Methionine at the position corresponding to CACNA1H M is conserved in the S6 helix of repeat three in all identified orthologs, including invertebrates.
In addition, methionine occurs at the paralogous position in other calcium channels activated by small depolarizing potential changes Figure 1C. Prior studies of Ca V 3. Mutation of the homologous methionine in Ca V 3. Tail currents are exclusively present in CACNA1H MV and suggest the presence of non-inactivated mutant channels at the end of the depolarizing pulse. Source files are available in Figure 5—source data 1. In contrast, activation and recovery from inactivation were only marginally slower in mutant channels Figure 5DFigure 5—figure supplement 1.
We also observed a significant shift of activation to less depolarizing potentials Figure 6. There cokpleto no significant effect on single channel cimpleto Figure 6—figure supplement 1. The voltage dependence of inactivation is shown as open circles or squares.
Source files are available in Figure 6—source data 1. A Whole-cell peak currents were divided by the cell capacitance as determined by the amount of capacitance compensation. DG A plot of the variance vs the current only allows for a small initial part of the expected parabolic distribution to be visible. These results allow a simple genetic test for this specific cause of severe hypertension and suggest that inhibition of mutant CACNA1H activity would ameliorate hypertension in patients with this mutation.
