Interstitial deletions of 6q are associated with variable phenotypes, including growth retardation, dysmorphic features, upper limb malformations, and Prader–Willi (PW)-like features. Only a minority of cases in the literature have been characterized with high resolution techniques, making genotype–phenotype correlations difficult. We report 12 individuals(More)
PURPOSE Long-term steroid therapy is a known risk factor for the development of posterior subcapsular cataract. Previous work in this laboratory has found soluble lens proteins to bind dexamethasone, but this binding is not due to a glucocorticoid receptor. This study was undertaken to identify the soluble protein or proteins involved in lens glucocorticoid(More)
Urocortin (Ucn 1), a 40 amino acid long peptide related to corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) was discovered 19 years ago, based on its sequence homology to the parent molecule. Its existence was inferred in the CNS because of anatomical and pharmacological discrepancies between CRF and its two receptor subtypes. Although originally found in the brain,(More)
