Abstract

DNA samples from 100 patients with cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) were compared with those of 98 unaffected control individuals with respect to transforming growth factor alpha (TGFA) genotypes. Among the Caucasians in this population (83 CL/P, 84 controls), there was a significant difference in the restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) observed after digestion with TaqI (chi 2 = 4.68, P = 0.03). The frequency of the C2 allele in the Caucasian CL/P population was 0.169, whereas that in the control group was 0.089. When the data for Caucasians, African-Americans, and Asians were examined jointly, the chi 2 value for the pooled sample was 5.08 (P = 0.02). This confirms the hypothesis of Ardinger et al. [1989, Am J Hum Genet, 45:348-353] that TFGA itself or a closely linked gene contributes to the development of CL/P in humans.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
