AbstractThe prevalence of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and cleft palate only (CPO) are believed to be higher in the Japanese than in Americans, Europeans or Africans. The purpose of this study was to investigate, in a Japanese population, relationships between CL/P or CPO and seven candidate genes (TGFB3, DLX3, PAX9, CLPTM1, TBX10, PVRL1, TBX22) that showed positive associations in other populations and are expressed in the oral/lip region in developing mice.
