PURPOSE The aim of this study was to map the disease locus of autosomal dominant cataracts (ADC) in a Chinese family. METHODS A four-generation family with multiple individuals affected by ADC was investigated. Genomic DNA was collected from 22 family members. A gene-scan at known candidate ADC loci was performed. To achieve fine-mapping we genotyped(More)
BACKGROUND Populus is an ecologically and economically important genus of trees, but distinguishing between wild species is relatively difficult due to extensive interspecific hybridization and introgression, and the high level of intraspecific morphological variation. The DNA barcoding approach is a potential solution to this problem. (More)
Infantile cystinosis (IC) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a defect in the lysosomal-membrane transport protein, cystinosin. It serves as a prototype for lysosomal transport disorders. To date, several CTNS mutations have been identified as the cause of the prototypic disease across different ethnic populations worldwide. However, in(More)
Species delimitation has been a major research focus in evolutionary biology. However, the genetic delimitation of recently diverged species varies depending on the markers examined. In this study, we aimed to examine genetic differentiation and delimitations between only two species of Pugionium Gaertn (Brassicaceae)—Pugionium cornutum (L.) Gaertn and(More)
