Investigation of crystallin genes in familial cataract, and report of two disease associated mutations.
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2004-01)
AIMS: Mutations of seven crystallin genes have been shown to cause familial cataract. The authors aimed to identify disease causing crystallin mutations in paediatric cataract families from south eastern Australia. METHODS: ...
The telomere of human chromosome 1p contains at least two independent autosomal dominant congenital cataract genes.
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2005-07)
AIMS: Multiple genetic causes of congenital cataract have been identified, both as a component of syndromes and in families that present with isolated congenital cataract. Linkage analysis was used to map the genetic locus ...
Partial duplication of the CRYBB1-CRYBA4 locus is associated with autosomal dominant congenital cataract
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-03-08)
Congenital cataract is a rare but severe paediatric visual impediment, often caused by variants in one of several crystallin genes that produce the bulk of structural proteins in the lens. Here we describe a pedigree with ...
