Primary congenital glaucoma (Buphthalmos) is an autosomal recessive eye disorder, postulated to result from developmental defects in the anterior eye segment. Previously, we reported two chromosomal locations for this condition on 2p21 (GLC3A) and 1p36 (GLC3B) respectively. In this study, heritable mutations of human cytochrome P4501B1 gene (CYP1B1) in affected individuals of five well-characterized families linked to the GLC3A locus are described. CYP1B1 gene has previously been mapped within… CONTINUE READING
