Strong evidence of linkage disequilibrium between polymorphisms at the IRF6 locus and nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate, in an Italian population.
Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) is one of the most common birth defects, but its etiology is largely unknown. It is very likely that both genetic and environmental factors contribute toExpand

C677T variant form at the MTHFR gene and CL/P: a risk factor for mothers?
Maternal folic acid supplementation in early pregnancy has been suggested to play a role in the prevention of nonsyndromic orofacial cleft, i.e., cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P).Expand

Maternal MTHFR variant forms increase the risk in offspring of isolated nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate
The pathogenesis of cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) is complex; its onset could be due to the interaction of various genetic and environmental factors. Recently MTHFR functionalExpand

Linkage disequilibrium between GABRB3 gene and nonsyndromic familial cleft lip with or without cleft palate
Abstract. The malformation of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) is a common congenital disease that affects approximately 1/1000 newborns in Caucasian populations. GeneticExpand
