    Rationale Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is an autosomal recessive, genetically heterogeneous disorder characterised by oto-sino-pulmonary disease and situs abnormalities (Kartagener syndrome) due to abnormal structure and/or function of cilia. Most patients currently recognised to have PCD...

  • Mutations in DNAH5 account for only 15% of a non-preselected cohort of patients with primary ciliary dyskinesia. Failly, M.; Bartoloni, L.; Letourneau, A.; Munoz, A.; Falconnet, E.; Rossier, C.; de Santi, M. M.; Santamaria, F.; Sacco, O.; DeLozier-Blanchet, C. D.; Lazor, R.; Blouin, J-L. // Journal of Medical Genetics;Apr2009, Vol. 46 Issue 4, p281 

    Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is characterised by recurrent infections of the upper respiratory airways (nose, bronchi, and frontal sinuses) and randomisation of left-right body asymmetry. To date, PCD is mainly described with autosomal recessive inheritance and mutations have...

    Background Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare disorder with variable disease progression. To date, mutations in more than 20 different genes have been found. At present, PCD subtypes are described according to the ultrastructural defect on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of the...

  • Mutations in DNAH5 cause primary ciliary dyskinesia and randomization of left?right asymmetry. Olbrich, Heike; H�ffner, Karsten; Kispert, Andreas; V�lkel, Alexander; Volz, Andreas; Sasmaz, G�rsel; Reinhardt, Richard; Hennig, Steffen; Lehrach, Hans; Konietzko, Nikolaus; Zariwala, Maimoona; Noone, Peadar G.; Knowles, Michael; Mitchison, Hannah M.; Meeks, Maggie; Chung, Eddie M.K.; Hildebrandt, Friedhelm; Sudbrak, Ralf; Omran, Heymut // Nature Genetics;Feb2002, Vol. 30 Issue 2, p143 

    Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD, MIM 242650) is characterized by recurrent infections of the respiratory tract due to reduced mucociliary clearance and by sperm immobility. Half of the affected offspring have situs inversus (reversed organs), which results from randomization of left-right (LR)...

    Impaired ciliary and flagellar functions resulting in male infertility and recurrent respiratory tract infections are found in patients suffering from primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). In most cases, axonemal defects are present, i.e. PCD patients often lack inner and/or outer dynein arms in...
