Linkage analysis of three candidate regions of chromosome 1 in nonsyndromic familial orofacial cleft

Annals of Human Genetics

Linkage analysis and mouse model knockout studies indicate that loci/genes mapping in different chromosome 1 regions are good candidates for nonsyndromic orofacial cleft (OFC) malformation. On this basis, three different regions of the chromosome 1 have been analysed, by linkage analysis, in 38 families with nonsyndromic OFC. Positive scores were obtained by pairwise analysis and a non-parametric linkage approach for the 1p36 region, with markers close to the MTHFR locus. Additional results allowed us to exclude the presence of an OFC susceptibility gene in the 1q21 and 1q32-42.3 regions.

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.
