Genome Inform. 2010;22:11-20 pubmed..Upon phenotypic testing one TF mutant exhibited severely impaired growth under non-permissive conditions. This TF, Mot3p was identified as of most abundant potential binding sites and distinctive patterns among the TRK promoter regions. ..

J Perinatol. 2011;31:802-3 pubmed publisher..He was found to be homozygous for the c.1678G>A mutation in the SCNN1A gene that codes for the ENaC-Î± unit. We conclude that clearance of alveolar fluid after birth in humans does not critically depend on ENaC. ..
