Am J Hum Genet. 2017;101:664-685 pubmed publisher..Moreover, these DNMs were more frequently recurrent than those identified in ID series. These observations indicate that the genetic landscape of DEE might be different from that of ID without epilepsy. ..
- Thomas G, Forbes J, Roberts E, Walshe J, Cox D. The Wilson disease gene: spectrum of mutations and their consequences. Nat Genet. 1995;9:210-7 pubmed..The mutations identified provide an explanation for at least part of the wide phenotypic variation observed in Wilson disease. ..

Nat Genet. 1995;9:235-42 pubmed..5 days post-coitum. Finally, we have genetically and physically mapped Mash2 to the distal region of chromosome 7, within a cluster of imprinted genes, including insulin-2, insulin-like growth factor-2 and H19. ..
