Candidate gene for CES being investigated

June 1, 2012 in News by alexa

In 2000, an article published in Genomics detailed how the over-expression of the gene CECR1 in cells could be the cause of many CES phenotypic features. Gene over-expression is known to be a common cause of diseases. The identification of CES genes will improve diagnosis and treatment methods.
