  1. pmc Primate-specific evolution of noncoding element insertion into PLA2G4C and human preterm birth
    Jevon Plunkett
    Department of Pediatrics, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN 37232, USA
    BMC Med Genomics 3:62. 2010
    ..We hypothesize that higher primate-specific gene evolution may lead to these differences and target genes involved in human preterm birth, an area of global health significance...

    Department of Pediatrics, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN 37232, USA
    BMC Med Genet 12:92. 2011
    ..We hypothesized that common polymorphisms in the five human lysyl oxidase genes (LOX, LOXL1, LOXL2, LOXL3, and LOXL4) may be associated with the phenotype of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis...

    PLoS Genet 7:e1001365. 2011
    ..We anticipate other human accelerated genes will similarly be associated with preterm birth risk and elucidate essential pathways for human parturition...
