    F Kaplan
    McGill University Montreal Children s Hospital Research Institute, Quebec, Canada
    Genet Test 2:271-92. 1998
    ..More importantly, the outcome of TSD screening over the last 28 years offers convincing evidence that such an effort can dramatically reduce incidence of the disease...
  2. ncbi A novel developmentally regulated gene in lung mesenchyme: homology to a tumor-derived trypsin inhibitor
    F Kaplan
    McGill University Montreal Children s Hospital Research Institute, Montreal, Quebec H3H 1P3
    Am J Physiol 276:L1027-36. 1999
    ..Although additional studies will be necessary to clearly establish a functional role for lgl1, we propose that lgl1 has a role in normal lung development that is likely to be via regulation of extracellular matrix degradation...
  3. ncbi Novel Tay-Sachs disease mutations from China
    N Akalin
    McGill University Montreal Children s Hospital Research Institute, Quebec, Canada
    Hum Mutat 1:40-6. 1992
    ..This mutation occurs at a CpG dinucleotide. It has been reported in an Italian TSD proband and causes defective intracellular transport of the alpha-subunit from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus...

    P Hechtman
    Research Institute, McGill University Montreal Children s Hospital, Quebec, Canada
    Am J Hum Genet 47:815-22. 1990
