Brachydactyly type B1 (BDB1), an autosomal dominant condition characterized by terminal deficiency of the fingers and toes, results from mutations in the gene ROR2 encoding a receptor tyrosine kinase. In addition to BDB1, mutations in the gene ROR2 also cause a more severe form of skeletal dysplasia, autosomal recessive Robinow syndrome. The present study(More)
DFNB89 is a novel autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (ARNSHI) locus that was mapped to 16q21-q23.2. Linkage to the region was established by carrying out genome-wide linkage scans in two unrelated, consanguineous Pakistani families segregating ARNSHI. The maximum multipoint LOD score is 9.7 for both families and for each family, a(More)

ISSN 0001-5555 Sir, Autosomal recessive hypotrichosis is a form of hereditary alopecia that affects men and women equally. This form of hair loss usually begins in early childhood. Affected individuals have sparse hair on the scalp, sparse-to-absent(More)
Woodhouse-Sakati Syndrome (WSS) is a rare autosomal recessive multisystemic disorder that is marked by hypogonadism, alopecia, intellectual disability, deafness, diabetes mellitus and progressive extrapyramidal defects. Mutations in the gene C2orf37 are the cause of Woodhouse-Sakati syndrome. In the present study, a four-generation consanguineous family(More)
HIGHLIGHTS Rhizobacteria (Azotobacter spp.) have improved the quality and quantity of safflower seed protein.Protein quality was confirmed by SDS-PAGE and new bands were found in response to different combinations of rhizobacteria and lower doses of fertilizers.The PGPR application has reduced the use of fertilizers upto 50%. Protein is an essential part of(More)
Alopecia with mental retardation (APMR) is a very rare disorder. In this study, we report on a consanguineous Pakistani family (AP91) with mild-to-moderate intellectual disability, adolescent alopecia and dentogingival abnormalities. Using homozygosity mapping, linkage analysis and exome sequencing, we identified a novel rare missense variant c.898G>A(More)
Ectodermal dysplasias (EDs) are a large heterogeneous group of inherited disorders exhibiting abnormalities in ectodermally derived appendages such as hair, nails, teeth and sweat glands. EDs associated with reticulated pigmentation phenotype are rare entities for which the genetic basis and pathophysiology are not well characterized. The present study(More)
