    C282Y/C282Y genotype is the prevalent genotype in Hereditary Haemochromatosis (HH), however, other genotypes have been associated with the disease. The objective of our study was to analyse the frequency of the three main mutations of HFE gene in HH patients and controls from the Basque...

    By using homozygosity mapping and positional cloning, we have shown that adult-onset type II citrullinemia (CTLN2) is caused by mutations of the SLC25A13 gene, which is localized on chromosome 7q21.3 and encodes a mitochondrial solute carrier protein named citrin. So far, we have reported nine...

    Spondylocostal dysostosis (SD, MIM 277300) is a group of vertebral malsegmentation syndromes with reduced stature resulting from axial skeletal defects. SD is characterized by multiple hemivertebrae, rib fusions and deletions with a non-progressive kyphoscoliosis. Cases may be sporadic or...

    There are two principal mechanisms that are responsible for the ability of an organism's physiological and developmental processes to compensate for mutations. In the first, genes have overlapping functions, and loss-of-function mutations in one gene will have little phenotypic effect if there...
