The gene encoding ribosomal protein S19 is mutated in Diamond-Blackfan anaemia
Diamond–Blackfan anaemia (DBA) is a constitutional erythroblastopenia characterized by absent or decreased erythroid precursors. The disease, previously mapped to human chromosome 19q13, isExpand

Vascular endothelial growth factor B controls endothelial fatty acid uptake
The vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) are major angiogenic regulators and are involved in several aspects of endothelial cell physiology. However, the detailed role of VEGF-B in bloodExpand

Mutations in the fatty acid transport protein 4 gene cause the ichthyosis prematurity syndrome.
Ichthyosis prematurity syndrome (IPS) is an autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by premature birth and neonatal asphyxia, followed by a lifelong nonscaly ichthyosis with atopic manifestations.Expand

Isolated oligodontia associated with mutations in EDARADD, AXIN2, MSX1, and PAX9 genes
Oligodontia is defined as the congenital lack of six or more permanent teeth, excluding third molars. Oligodontia as well as hypodontia (lack of one or more permanent teeth) are highly heritableExpand

Alpha-cardiac actin mutations produce atrial septal defects.
Atrial septal defect (ASD) is one of the most frequent congenital heart defects (CHDs) with a variable phenotypic effect depending on the size of the septal shunt. We identified two pedigreesExpand

Welander Distal Myopathy Caused by an Ancient Founder Mutation in TIA1 Associated with Perturbed Splicing
Welander distal myopathy (WDM) is an adult onset autosomal dominant disorder characterized by distal limb weakness, which progresses slowly from the fifth decade. All WDM patients are of Swedish orExpand

WNT10A missense mutation associated with a complete Odonto-Onycho-Dermal Dysplasia syndrome
Wnt signalling is one of a few pathways that are crucial for controlling genetic programs during embryonic development as well as in adult tissues. WNT10A is expressed in the skin and epidermis andExpand

Mutations in the gene encoding fibroblast growth factor 10 are associated with aplasia of lacrimal and salivary glands
Autosomal dominant aplasia of lacrimal and salivary glands (ALSG; OMIM 180920 and OMIM 103420) is a rare condition characterized by irritable eyes and dryness of the mouth. We mapped ALSG toExpand

Mutations in Frizzled 6 cause isolated autosomal-recessive nail dysplasia.
Inherited and isolated nail malformations are rare and heterogeneous conditions. We identified two consanguineous pedigrees in which some family members were affected by isolated nail dysplasia thatExpand

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-B Induces Myocardium-Specific Angiogenesis and Arteriogenesis via Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-1– and Neuropilin Receptor-1–Dependent Mechanisms
Background— New revascularization therapies are urgently needed for patients with severe coronary heart disease who lack conventional treatment options. Methods and Results— We describe a newExpand
