    Citation: BMC Genetics 2002 3:4
  6. To learn about the molecular etiology of strabismus, we are studying the genetic basis of 'congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles' (CFEOM). These syndromes are characterized by congenital restrictive o...

  9. Proximal chromosome 15q is implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders including Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes, autistic disorder and developmental abnormalities resulting from chromosomal deletions or du...

    Authors: Thea K Chibuk, Jocelyn M Bischof and Rachel Wevrick
    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:22
  10. Recent progress in insect transgenesis has been dramatic but existing transposon-based approaches are constrained by position effects and potential instability. Gene targeting would bring a number of benefits,...

    Authors: Paul Eggleston and Yuguang Zhao
    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:21
  11. The NUP98 gene is involved in multiple rearrangements in haematological malignancy. The leukemic cells in an acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patient with a t(9;11)(p22;p15) were recently shown to have a fusion betwe...

    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:20
  12. R122, the primary autolysis site of the human cationic trypsinogen (PRSS1), constitutes an important "self-destruct" or "fail-safe" defensive mechanism against premature trypsin activation within the pancreas....

    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:19
  13. Glaucoma is a blinding disease usually associated with high intraocular pressure (IOP). In some families, abnormal anterior segment development contributes to glaucoma. The genes causing anterior segment dysge...

    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:17
  15. Two common southern African mice species, Mastomys coucha and M. natalensis, are widely distributed throughout the subregion and overlap in many areas. They also share a high degree of morphological similarity, m...

    Authors: Andre A Smit and Herman FH Van der Bank
    Citation: BMC Genetics 2001 2:15
  16. Genomic instability has been reported at microsatellite tracts in few coding sequences. We have shown that the Bloom syndrome BLM gene may be a target of microsatelliteinstability (MSI) in a short poly-adenine re...
