A multicentric association study between 39 genes and nonsyndromic cleft lip and palate in a Brazilian population.
Campinas, Brazil. In J Craniomaxillofac Surg, Jan 2016
RESULTS: Twenty-four SNPs in 16 genes were significantly associated with the etiology of NSCLP, including MSX1, SPRY1, MSX2, PRSS35, TFAP2A, SHH, VAX1, TBX10, WNT11, PAX9, BMP4, JAG2, AXIN2, DVL2, KIF7, and TCBE3.
Teratogenic factors affect transcription factor expression.
Tokyo, Japan. In Biosci Biotechnol Biochem, 2012
The expression changes in Dlx4, Dlx6, Irx5, Sall2, Sall3, Sall4, Tbx10, and Tbx22 were linked to teratogen-induced phenotypes, and our results indicate that expression changes in developmental transcription factors can help to predict teratogenic risk.
