The current version of the androgen receptor (AR) gene mutations database is described. The total number of reported mutations has risen from 272 to 309 in the past year. We have expanded the database: (i) by giving each entry an accession number; (ii) by adding information on the length of polymorphic polyglutamine (polyGln) and polyglycine (polyGly)(More)
Five mutations in the ligand-binding domain (LBD) of the human androgen receptor (hAR) found in patients with varying degrees of androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) were investigated for their effects on receptor dynamics. These were Arg(871)Gly (mild), Ser(814)Asn (partial), Glu(772)Ala (partial), Val(866)Met (complete), and Arg(774)Cys (complete).(More)
Syndromes of human congenital malformation may be classified be recognizing communities of syndromes that share multiple phenotypic similarities involving their principal diagnostic features. A community of syndromes that shares various expressions of ectodermal dysplasia and various deformities of the hands and feet is proposed; these syndromes are(More)
Clinically equivalent doses of hydrocortisone, prednisolone, and dexamethasone have progressively increasing teratogenic activity as judged by their ability to induce cleft palate in the offspring of pregnant mice treated with these drugs during the middle period of gestation. Mole for mole, dexamethasone is at least 300 times more teratogenic than(More)
