  • Purpose To assess whether loci other than GLC3A, GLC3B, and GLC3C are linked to primary congenital glaucoma (PCG). Methods The gene CYP1B1 at GLC3A was screened in 19 Iranian PCG probands who had been recruited mostly from among individuals of Turkish ethnicity and individuals from central and eastern Iran. The gene MYOC was screened in patients from this cohort who lacked CYP1B1 mutations and in ten patients previously shown not to carry CYP1B1 mutations. Family members of 19 probands without… CONTINUE READING
