Mutations in ABCC6 are responsible for pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE), a rare genetic disease affecting the elastic tissues of the body. ABCC6 encodes a 1503 amino acid long ABC transporter, ABCC6/MRP6. The functional link between the impaired activity of the protein and the disease is not known. We have built a homology model of this transporter, and(More)
The completion of the Human Genome Project has brought the understanding that our genome contains an unexpectedly large proportion of segmental duplications. This poses the challenge of elucidating the consequences of recent duplications on physiology. We have conducted an in-depth study of a subset of segmental duplications on chromosome 16. We focused on(More)
