Exome Sequencing on 298 Probands With Early-Onset High Myopia: Approximately One-Fourth Show Potential Pathogenic Mutations in RetNet Genes.
In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, Jan 2016
Of the 71 probands, 44 (62.0%) had mutations in 11 genes responsible for ocular diseases accompanied by high myopia, including COL2A1, COL11A1, PRPH2, FBN1, GNAT1, OPA1, PAX2, GUCY2D, TSPAN12, CACNA1F, and RPGR.
New COL6A6 variant detected by whole-exome sequencing is linked to break points in intron 4 and 3'-UTR, deleting exon 5 of RHO, and causing adRP.
Barcelona, Spain. In Mol Vis, 2014
We used a newly devised multiplex PCR assay capable of amplifying the genetic loci of RHO, PRPH2, RP1, PRPF3, PRPF8, PRPF31, IMPDH1, NRL, CRX, KLHL7, and NR2E3 to molecularly diagnose 18 index patients with adRP.
