G6PC3 mutations cause non-syndromic severe congenital neutropenia.

Banka S., Wynn R., Byers H., Arkwright P.D., Newman W.G.

The deficiency of ubiquitously expressed glucose-6-phosphatase (G6PC3) enzyme is known to result in a syndrome characterized by severe congenital neutropenia, prominent superficial venous pattern, congenital heart defects and genito-urinary malformations. Here, we describe four patients from three families with non-syndromic severe congenital neutropenia and identify four G6PC3 mutations as causative in these cases. Thus we demonstrate that G6PC3 mutations also result in a non-syndromic form of severe congenital neutropenia. We propose that G6PC3 deficiency should be considered as part of the differential diagnoses in any patient with unexplained congenital neutropenia. Additionally, we show a relationship between the genotype and non-hematological phenotype of G6PC3 deficiency. These findings may provide an insight into the role of the G6PC3 enzyme and glucose metabolism in developmental pathways.
