A Novel HSF4 Gene Mutation Causes Autosomal-Dominant Cataracts in a Chinese Family

Abstract

Congenital cataracts are a significant cause of visual impairment or blindness in children. One-third of cases estimated to have a genetic cause. We carried out gene analysis and bioinformatics analysis to map the locus and to identify the underlying genetic defect in a 12-member, four-generation Chinese family affected with bilateral congenital cataracts… (More)
