Mutations in the de novo DNA methyltransferase DNMT3B lead to Immunodeficiency, Centromeric Instability and Facial anomalies (ICF) syndrome, type I. This syndrome is characterized, among other hypomethylated genomic loci, by severe subtelomeric hypomethylation that is associated with abnormally short telomere length. While it was demonstrated that the mean telomere length is significantly shorter in ICF type I cells, it is unknown whether all telomeres are equally vulnerable to shortening. To study this question we determined by combined telomere-FISH and spectral karyotyping the relative length of each individual telomere in lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) generated from multiple ICF syndrome patients and control individuals. Here we confirm the short telomere lengths, and demonstrate that telomere length variance in the ICF patient group is much larger than in the control group, suggesting that not all telomeres shorten in a uniform manner. We identified a subgroup of telomeres whose relatively short lengths can distinguish with a high degree of certainty between a control and an ICF metaphase, proposing that in ICF syndrome cells, certain individual telomeres are consistently at greater risk to shorten than others. The majority of these telomeres display high sequence identity at the distal 2 kb of their subtelomeres, suggesting that the attenuation in DNMT3B methylation capacity affects individual telomeres to different degrees based, at least in part, on the adjacent subtelomeric sequence composition.
