(A) Schematic representation of the canonical structure of FTL IRE depicting important structural parts: the hexanucleotide apical loop, the cytosine bulge and the upper and lower stems. (B) Picture of the FTL IRE indicating all known causative point mutations in HHCS. The two new mutations described here (Badalona +36C > U and Heidelberg +52 G > C) are boxed. (C) Picture of FTL IRE showing the known deletions causing HHCS.
