The PCR/restriction endonuclease digestion (RE) assay and PCR/SSCP analysis of the rhodopsin gene in 13 Japanese families with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (ad R p) revealed a G-A substitution of the first nucleotide of codon 181, replacing Glu (GAG) with Lys (AAG), in one family. The...
Preserved para-arteriole retinal pigment epithelium (PPRPE) is an uncommon form of retinitis pigmentosa, with a very peculiar funduscopic appearance. To our knowledge no patient under age ten, affected by PPRPE, has been reported in the literature. The authors present here a seven-year-old boy,...
A mother and daughter with autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP) were found to carry a cytosine-to-adenine transversion mutation at codon 4 of the rhodopsin gene. This mutation predicts a substitution of lysine for threonine at one of the glycosylation sites in the rhodopsin molecule...
