The significance of human jagged 1 mutations detected in severe cases of extrahepatic biliary atresia
Mutations of human jagged 1 (JAG1) gene are responsible for Alagille Syndrome (AGS), whose 2 main symptoms are intrahepatic bile duct hypoplasia and pulmonary stenosis. We examined the JAG1 mutationExpand

The DSL domain in mutant JAG1 ligand is essential for the severity of the liver defect in Alagille syndrome
Alagille syndrome (AGS) is a congenital multi‐system anomaly mainly characterized by paucity of intrahepatic bile ducts caused by haploinsufficiency of the Jagged 1 gene (JAG1). To explore theExpand
