Association of cleft lip and atrial septal defect in mice: a preliminary report

F C Fraser, J Rosen


Newborn A/J and CL/Fr mice with congenital cleft lip usually have an atrial septal defect of the secundum type, often associated with cyanosis. Their littermates without cleft lip rarely have a septal defect. The atrial septal defect results from a delay in growth of the atrial septum primum.
