Genes For Spinocerebellar Ataxia With Blindness And Deafness (Scabd/Scar3, Mim# 271250 And Scabd2)
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Ataxia is a symptom that is often associated with syndromic inherited diseases. We previously reported the linkage of a novel syndrome, ataxia with blindness and deafness (SCAR3/SCABD, OMIM# 271250), to chromosome 6p21-p23 ...
Loss-Of-Function Mutations in Elmo2 Cause Intraosseous Vascular Malformation by Impeding Rac1 Signaling
(Cell Press, 2016)
Vascular malformations are non-neoplastic expansions of blood vessels that arise due to errors during angiogenesis. They are a heterogeneous group of sporadic or inherited vascular disorders characterized by localized ...
Ahi1 Mutations Cause Both Retinal Dystrophy and Renal Cystic Disease in Joubert Syndrome
(B M J Publishing Group, 2006)
Background: Joubert syndrome (JS) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterised by hypotonia, ataxia, mental retardation, altered respiratory pattern, abnormal eye movements, and a brain malformation known as the molar ...
Exome Sequencing And Cis-Regulatory Mapping Identify Mutations In Mak, A Gene Encoding A Regulator Of Ciliary Length, As A Cause Of Retinitis Pigmentosa
(Cell Press, 2011)
A fundamental challenge in analyzing exome-sequence data is distinguishing pathogenic mutations from background polymorphisms. To address this problem in the context of a genetically heterogeneous disease, retinitis ...
Extensive Scanning Of The Calpain-3 Gene Broadens The Spectrum Of Lgmd2A Phenotypes
(B M J Publishing Group, 2005)
Background: The limb girdle muscular dystrophies ( LGMD) are a heterogeneous group of Mendelian disorders highlighted by weakness of the pelvic and shoulder girdle muscles. Seventeen autosomal loci have been so far identified ...
Evidence From Autoimmune Thyroiditis Of Skewed X-Chromosome Inactivation In Female Predisposition To Autoimmunity
(Nature Publishing Group, 2006)
The etiologic factors in the development of autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) are not fully understood. We investigated the role of skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) mosaicism in female predisposition to AITDs. One ...
Heterogeneous Spectrum Of Mutations In The Fanconi Anaemia Group A Gene
(Stockton Press, 1999)
Fanconi anaemia (FA) is a genetically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder associated with chromosomal fragility, bone-marrow failure, congenital abnormalities and cancer. The gene for complementation group A (FAA), ...
Hereditary Index Finger Polydactyly - Phenotypic, Radiological, Dermatoglyphic, And Genetic Findings In A Large Family
(British Med Journal Publ Group, 1976)
Craniosynostosis And Multiple Skeletal Anomalies In Humans And Zebrafish Result From A Defect In The Localized Degradation Of Retinoic Acid
(Cell Press, 2011)
Excess exogenous retinoic acid (RA) has been well documented to have teratogenic effects in the limb and craniofacial skeleton. Malformations that have been observed in this context include craniosynostosis, a common ...
Evaluation Of Prenatal-Onset Osteochondrodysplasias By Ultrasonography: A Retrospective And Prospective Analysis
The osteochondrodysplasia or skeletal dysplasias are a heterogenous group of over 350 distinct disorders of skeletogenesis. Many manifest in the prenatal diagnosis. A retrospective analysis evaluated 1,500 cases referred ...
