Objective: To screening coagulation and anticoagulation genes and mutations in Chinese patients with venous thromboembolism suspected of inhered thrombophilia. Methods: Patients with venous thromboembolism caused by inherited thrombophilia were collected from the second Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine during June 2015 and December 2017. Gene sequencing was conducted to screen the anticoagulant-related genes PROC, PROS1, SERPINC1 and coagulation-related genes F5, F2, F8, CBS, MTHFR. The thousands of human genome database, ESP6500 database, Genoma database, HGMD mutation database were used to compare the mutation sites, and the pathogenic mutation sites were predicted according to SIFT, Polyphen, MutationTaster and CADD databases. Results: Among 25 patients screened, eight patients with PROC mutations, two patients with PROS1 mutations, three patients with SERPINC1 mutations; one patient with F5 mutation, one patient with F2 mutation, one patient with F8 mutation, two patient with CBS mutations, and one patient with MTHFR mutation. Conclusion: The second generation gene sequencing helps to diagnose inherited thrombophilia and guide the decision of anticoagulation duration.

目的: 检测和分析遗传性易栓症的相关基因及其突变位点,为中国人群遗传性易栓症患者的基因突变特点积累资料。方法: 对2015年6月至2017年12月在浙江大学医学院附属第二医院就诊的遗传性易栓症疑似患者25例进行血清蛋白C、蛋白S,抗凝因子相关基因蛋白C(基因名PROC)、蛋白S(基因名PROS1)和抗凝血酶Ⅲ(基因名SERPINC1),凝血因子相关基因凝血因子Ⅴ(基因名F5)、凝血因子Ⅱ(基因名F2)、凝血因子Ⅷ(基因名F8)、高型半胱氨酸血症相关因子(CBSMTHFR)第二代测序分析。利用千人基因组数据库、ESP6500数据库、Genoma数据库、HGMD突变数据库比对突变位点,根据SIFT、Polyphen、MutationTaster、CADD数据库预测突变位点的致病性。结果: 25例患者中,发现抗凝因子相关基因PROC突变患者8例,PROS1突变患者2例,SERPINC1突变患者3例;凝血相关基因F5突变1例,F2突变1例,F8突变1例,CBS突变2例,MTHFR突变1例。结论: 应用第二代基因测序分析有助于诊断遗传性易栓症相关静脉血栓,指导精准治疗。
