Supplemental data. APOA5 Q97X mutation identified through homozygosity mapping causes severe hypertriglyceridemia in a consanguineous family. Supplemental tables: Table S1. Genes related to hypertriglyceridemia. Table S2. Features of the human Cyto SNP-12 panel (as reported by Illumina http://www.illumina.com webcite). Table S3. Regions showing excess of homozygosity in the two affected sisters (family members 11 and 12) and more than 20% of heterozygosis in a healthy sister (subject 14). Table S4. Main clinical features of the 97X homozygous cases reported of Q97X mutation in APOA5. Supplemental figures: Figure S1. Pedigree chart of the complete family. Figure S2. PCR-RFLP analysis of S19W and -1131 T>C polymorphisms of the APOA5 gene in the complete consanguineous Chilean family with HTG and APOA5 mutation. Figure S3. Single nucleotide substitution in exon 4 (c.289 C>T), which converts the glutamine codon at position 97 into a termination codon (Q97X) in APOA5 gene. Figure S4. Model of Apo A-V protein structure and critical domains.
