To date, of 13 loci with linkage to non-syndromic autosomal recessive mental retardation (NS-ARMR), only six genes have been established with associated mutations. Here we present our study on NS-ARMR among the Pakistani population, where people are traditionally bound to marry within the family or the wider clan. In an exceptional, far-reaching genetic survey we have collected more than 50 consanguineous families exhibiting clinical symptoms/phenotypes of NS-ARMR. In the first step, nine… CONTINUE READING
