Menkes gene study in the Chinese population.


We sought to determine the nature of the molecular defect causing Menkes' syndrome in the Chinese population. The DNA of four patients with typical Menkes manifestation was sequenced. Two pathologic genetic defects were identified; one of them is a nonsense mutation, whereas the other is a frameshift mutation. Both of these mutations are de novo.
