We have previously described individuals presenting with transient neonatal diabetes and showing a variable pattern of DNA hypomethylation at imprinted loci throughout the genome. We now report mutations in ZFP57, which encodes a zinc-finger transcription factor expressed in early development, in seven pedigrees with a shared pattern of mosaic hypomethylation and a conserved range of clinical features. This is the first description of a heritable global imprinting disorder that is compatible with life.
