Fanconi anemia, complementation group G (FANCG)

Fanconi anemia of complementation group G (FANCG) is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the FANCG gene on chromosome 9p13..
FA is a genetically heterogeneous, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by progressive pancytopenia, a diverse assortment of congenital malformations, and a predisposition to the development of malignancies. At the cellular level it is associated with hypersensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, chromosomal instability (increased chromosome breakage), and defective DNA repair.
