Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and Angelman Syndrome (AS) are distinct neurogenetic disorders, both usually caused by chromosomal deletions on chromosome 15q11 or by uniparental disomy (UPD). MS-MLPA can be used to detect copy number changes, as well as to detect aberrant methylation of one or more sequences of the Prader-Willi/Angelman region at 15q11.
