Down syndrome critical region gene 3
The region of chromosome 21 between genes CBR and ERG (CBR-ERG region), which spans 2.5 Mb on 21q22.2, has been defined by analysis of patients with partial trisomy 21. It contributes significantly to the pathogenesis of many characteristics of Down syndrome, including morphological features, hypotonia, and mental retardation. The DSCR3 (Down syndrome critical region gene 3) gene is found in this region and is predictated to contain eight exons. DSCR3 is expressed in most tissues examined.

Ryu et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Int J Mol Sci, 2014
We compared the concentrations of DSCR3, RASSF1A, and SRY as cell-free fetal DNA markers in 188 normal pregnancies, 16 pregnancies with early-onset preeclampsia (EO-PE), 47 pregnancies with late-onset preeclampsia (LO-PE), and 29 pregnancies with gestational hypertension (GH).

In human, it includes the well-characterized visual and β-arrestins, the arrestin domain-containing proteins (ARRDCs), isoforms of the retromer subunit VPS26, and DSCR3, a protein involved in Down syndrome.

METHODS: ABCC4 gene on chromosome 13, TYMS gene on chromosome 18, DSCR3 gene on chromosome 21, HPRT2 gene on chromosome X, and SRY gene on Y chromosome were used as the target genes, with GAPDH gene on chromosome 12 as the control gene.
The fragment from Down's syndrome critical region gene 3 (DSCR3) on chromosome 21 was used as the target gene, and the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) gene on chromosome 12 was used as the control gene.

More specifically, we propose that they are members of a novel mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway with DYRK1A, SNF1LK and RIPK4 gene products being elements of the kinase cascade and the DSCR3 acting as structural scaffold for their interaction.
METHODS: High throughput real-time PCR technique was used to measure the DSCR3 gene dosage of genomic DNAs from uncultured amniocytes of fetuses, lymphocytes of trisomy 21 syndrome patients, and normal people, compared to conventional cytogenetic karyotype analysis.
