The gene encoding the rat mitochondrial benzodiazepine receptor (MBR) was cloned and characterized. Hybridization of a previously cloned cDNA for MBR to genomic Southern blots indicated that the gene was probably present at one copy per haploid genome. Rapid amplification of cDNA ends with rat adrenal RNA was used to obtain 47 nt of additional sequence(More)
Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is a disorder in which many tiny fragments (microliths) of calcium phosphate gradually accumulate in alveoli. Loss of function mutations in the gene SLC34A2 coding for the sodium phosphate co-transporter (NaPi-IIb) are responsible for genetic forms of alveolar microlithiasis. We now report a consanguineous Italian family(More)
