Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome Type 2b: Disease Bioinformatics
Autoimmune Lyphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS) (sometimes referred to as Canale-Smith Syndrome) is a disorder when the body makes an abnormally large amount of lymphocytes (immune system cells), causing enlarged lymph nodes, liver, and spleen. Autoimmune Lyphoproliferative Syndrome is an inherited disease in an autosomal dominant pattern. The autoimmune component is present with the immune system attacking the cells within the blood stream. Mutations in the FASgene account for 75% of ALPS cases as this gene codes for proteins that regulate cell apoptosis. However, the other 25% of cases are referred to as Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome- Type 2b (ALPS2B). Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome Type 2b is much less understood and extremely rare. These cases are linked to mutations on CASP8 and CASP10.
