The shortest region of deletion overlap contains several conserved nongenic sequences harboring putative transcription factor-binding sites and representing potential long-range cis-regulatory elements.

The synddome is inherited as an autosomal dominant sex-limited trait.

The authors hypothesized that these translocations may isolate transcription regulatory elements, including the human ECF1 ortholog, leading to FOXL2 misregulation.

The diagnosis of BPES is based on four clinical findings which are present at the time of birth.

Blepharophimosis Syndrome

Further evidence for the location of the blepharopjimosis syndrome BPES at 3q Other differential diagnoses of BPES include disorders in which either droopy eyelids ptosis or narrowing of the eyes blepharophimosis is a major feature.
