Neural Tube Defects: From a Proteomic Standpoint

  title={Neural Tube Defects: From a Proteomic Standpoint},
  author={T M Puvirajesinghe and Jean-Paul Borg},
Neural tube defects (NTDs) are congenital birth defects classified according to their resulting morphological characteristics in newborn patients. Current diagnosis of NTDs relies largely on the structural evaluation of fetuses using ultrasound imaging, with biochemical characterization used as secondary screening tools. The multigene etiology of NTDs has been aided by genetic studies, which have discovered panels of genes mutated in these diseases that encode receptors and cytoplasmic… CONTINUE READING
