Biography

Gail E. Herman, MD, PhD, is a member of the Section of Molecular and Human Genetics at Nationwide Children's Hospital, and the Center for Molecular and Human Genetics in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital. She is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics with a secondary appointment in the Department of Molecular Virology, Immunology and Medical Genetics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. She received her medical degree and a PhD in biochemistry from Duke University and completed a residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in genetics at Baylor College of Medicine. She is board-certified in pediatrics and clinical and biochemical genetics. Her research focuses on X-linked developmental disorders. Current National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research focuses on mouse models for cholesterol biosynthesis disorders. A new research focus involves translational work with the development of the Central Ohio Registry for Autism (CORA) and genetics evaluation of children with autism funded through the Department of Defense. Dr. Herman serves on the Department of Pediatrics promotion and tenure committee and is President-Elect of the American College of Medical Genetics.

  • Our laboratory uses genetic approaches to try to understand the basis for selected single gene and more complex human developmental disorders. In 1999, we discovered that the X-linked, male lethal mouse mutants bare patches (Bpa) and tattered (Td) were associated with mutations in the genes Nsdhl and Ebp, encoding sequential enzymes in cholesterol biosynthesis. Subsequently, we and others identified mutations in the orthologous human genes in CHILD syndrome and X-linked dominant chondrodysplasia punctata, respectively. All of these disorders produce skeletal, skin, CNS, and eye abnormalities in surviving females and are among 6 known disorders of sterol biosynthesis. The most common of the human cholesterol biosynthesis disorders, Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome, causes hypotonia, failure to thrive, major malformations, and mental retardation. It has the highest incidence of autism (>50%) for any known single gene disorder. Recently, several males with mental retardation and non-mosaic mutations in EBP or NSDHL have been identified, suggesting that the spectrum of phenotypes associated with defects in these genes is broader than originally thought, and that these enzymes play critical functions in the developing CNS. Since male mouse embryos with Nsdhl mutations die prenatally, we generated a conditional targeted Nsdhl allele in embryonic stem cells using Cre-lox technology. This conditional allele reproduces the null phenotype of the original Bpa mutation. Inactivation of the conditional allele in the embryonic mouse brain beginning at ~E13.5 produces a dramatic and novel cerebellar phenotype with reduced granule cell proliferation and deficient hedgehog signaling. We are currently exploring the effects of inactivation with different Cre lines to produce later-onset behavioral phenotypes in our mice. In a second translational project, we have a large multisite collaboration with Dr. Wolfgang Sadee at The Ohio State University and clinicians at Dayton Children’s Medical Center and Wright Patterson Air Force Base that is funded through the Department of Defense to develop a registry for families in central Ohio with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Over 200 families have been enrolled, with detailed demographic, genetic, and medical information on each. Through the registry and clinical genetics evaluations of children with autism, we have developed guidelines for genetic testing for newly diagnosed patients, including the sequencing of the PTEN tumor suppressor gene in patients with autism or developmental delay and macrocephaly. We are performing whole exome sequencing on selected registry families to identify de novo pathogenic variants, as well as second site modifiers in children with an identifiable primary mutation. In collaboration with Dr. Sadee, we are performing association studies in trios in our registry using polymorphic functional variants identified by Dr. Sadee in genes involved in relevant neurotransmitter pathways.
