Low prevalence of lecithin retinol acyltransferase mutations in patients with Leber congenital amaurosis and autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the the prevalence of pathogenic mutations in the gene encoding lecithin retinol acyltransferase (LRAT) in patients from North America with either Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) or autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (ARRP). METHODS Exon 1, exon 2, and the coding region of exon 3 of LRAT were PCR-amplified and directly… (More)
