Abstract:Isoleucine at codon 535 in the PDEB gene is conserved among various mammals. Missense mutations of the PDEB gene causing arRP have been reported in a limited region (codon 527-codon 699) in which codon 535 is located. Thus, the Ile535Asn mutation is an additional missense mutation which is responsible for the pathogenesis of arRP.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
