    Background CCDC39 and CCDC40 genes have recently been implicated in primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) with inner dynein arm (IDA) defects and axonemal disorganisation; their contribution to the disease is, however, unknown. Aiming to delineate the CCDC39/ CCDC40 mutation spectrum and associated...

    Background: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is associated with chronic airway inflammation resulting in bronchiectasis. Methods: The levels of exhaled nitric oxide (eNO), carbon monoxide (eCO) and nasal NO (nNO) from bronchiectatic patients with PCD (n=14) were compared with those from patients...

    Background Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is the earliest and most severe inherited retinal degeneration. Isolated forms of LCA frequently result from mutation of the gene which is expressed in various ciliated tissues. Methods Seven LCA patients with mutations were investigated to study...
