Mutational Analysis of the TYR and OCA2 Genes in Four Chinese Families with Oculocutaneous Albinism


BACKGROUND Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) is an autosomal recessive disorder. The most common type OCA1 and OCA2 are caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the tyrosinase gene (TYR) and OCA2 gene, respectively. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the molecular basis of oculocutaneous albinism in four Chinese families… (More)
