Genes modulating chemical breathing control: lessons from mutant animals.

Abstract

Genetic factors influence breathing control. Respiratory phenotypes of mutant mice may help to better understand these factors. Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) is a rare disorder defined as failure of chemical control of breathing causing central alveolar hypoventilation, especially during sleep. A genetic basis for CCHS is supported by… (More)
