Mapping of the rod photoreceptor ABC transporter (ABCR) to 1p21–p22.1 and identification of novel mutations in Stargardt’s disease

Abstract

Using a bovine rod photoreceptor cell-specific ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter cDNA we have cloned the full-length transcript of the homologous human gene and demonstrate that it is identical to the photoreceptor cell-specific ABC transporter (ABCR) recently shown to be mutated in Stargardt’s disease. By fluorescence in situ hybridization we have… (More)
