OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency of mutations in the regulatory domain of the gap junction protein connexin 43 in patients with visceroatrial heterotaxy. DESIGN Mutation screening of the terminal 200 base pairs of connexin43 gene coding sequence in a series of patients from tertiary care centres. PATIENTS 48 patients with visceroatrial heterotaxy(More)
A mother and daughter with Pallister-Hall syndrome are described. This documented parent-to-child transmission supports the hypothesis of autosomal dominant inheritance of this condition. The mother survived childhood and became pregnant without exogenous endocrine supplements, demonstrating that the gene manifests variable expressivity.
