Mutations in the gene (GJB2) coding for Connexin 26 (Cx26) are responsible for genetic forms of sensorineural hearing loss. This article describes a family characterized by congenital profound hearing loss, inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion and associated to a R75Q substitution in Cx26....
We identified a family with 10 affected members in four generations suffering from adult-onset progressive sinoatrial and atrioventricular conduction disease, sudden death due to ventricular tachyarrhythmia, dilated cardiomyopathy, and a unique type of brachydactyly with mild hand involvement...
Low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) are an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. We investigated the effects of the TaqIB polymorphism of cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP) on CETP activity and plasma HDL-C levels in random nondiabetic and self-reported...
Sitosterolaemia is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by increased intestinal absorption of plant sterols, decreased hepatic excretion into bile and elevated concentrations in plasma phytosterols. Homozygous or compound heterozygous loss of function mutations in either of the...
Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) are the most common neurodegenerative childhood-onset disorders characterized by autosomal recessive inheritance, epileptic seizures, progressive psychomotor deterioration, visual failure, and premature death. At least seven subtypes of childhood-onset NCLs...
There is a growing movement in medical genetics to develop, implement, and promote a model of race-based medicine. Although race-based medicine may become a widely disseminated standard of care, messages that advocate race-based selection for diagnosing, screening and prescribing drugs may...
Apolipoprotein A5 is a recently discovered apolipoprotein involved primarily in triglyceride metabolism. Several single-nucleotide polymorphisms have been investigated since the initial report. The −1131T > C polymorphism has been associated with higher triglyceride levels and a decreased...
