Mutations in a gene encoding a novel SH3/TPR domain protein cause autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 4C neuropathy.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4C (CMT4C) is a childhood-onset demyelinating form of hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy associated with an early-onset scoliosis and a distinct Schwann cellExpand

Mechanisms for nonrecurrent genomic rearrangements associated with CMT1A or HNPP: rare CNVs as a cause for missing heritability.
Genomic rearrangements involving the peripheral myelin protein gene (PMP22) in human chromosome 17p12 are associated with neuropathy: duplications cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A),Expand

An Organismal CNV Mutator Phenotype Restricted to Early Human Development
De novo copy number variants (dnCNVs) arising at multiple loci in a personal genome have usually been considered to reflect cancer somatic genomic instabilities. We describe a multiple dnCNV (MdnCNV)Expand

Juvenile open angle glaucoma: fine mapping of the TIGR gene to 1q24.3–q25.2 and mutation analysis
Abstract Autosomal dominant juvenile open angle glaucoma (JOAG) is an early-onset form of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), which has been linked to chromosome 1q21–q31. Recently, mutations in theExpand

Heterozygous loss-of-function variants in CYP1B1 predispose to primary open-angle glaucoma.
PURPOSE Although primary congenital glaucoma (PCG)-associated CYP1B1 mutations in the heterozygous state have been evaluated for association with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) in several smallExpand

A new quantitative PCR multiplex assay for rapid analysis of chromosome 17p11.2-12 duplications and deletions leading to HMSN/HNPP
A 1.4-Mb tandem duplication, including the gene for peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) in chromosome 17p11.2-12 is responsible for 70% of the cases of the demyelinating type 1 ofExpand
