    F Xiang
    Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden

    ..This result suggests that the gene responsible for the French form is likely to be located on chromosome 2q21...
  2. pmc Mutation screening in Rett syndrome patients
    F Xiang
    Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden
    J Med Genet 37:250-5. 2000
    ..No gross differences were observed in neurones of several brain regions between normal controls and Rett patients...

    F Xiang
    Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden
    Neuropediatrics 32:217-8. 2001

    J Med Genet 38:435-42. 2001
