Journal:

 

Cone-rod dystrophies (CORDs) represent a heterogeneous group of monogenic diseases leading to early impairment of vision. The majority of CORD entities show autosomal modes of inheritance and X-linked traits are comparably rare. So far, three X-chromosomal entities were reported (CORDX1, ...

GCAP1 mutations associated with autosomal dominant cone dystrophy.
 

Author(s): Li Jiang, Wolfgang Baehr

Journal: Adv. Exp. Med. Biol.. 2010 ;664():273-82.

 

We discuss the heterogeneity of autosomal dominant cone and cone-rod dystrophies (adCD, and adCORD, respectively). As one of the best characterized adCD genes, we focus on the GUCA1A gene encoding guanylate cyclase activating protein 1 (GCAP1), a protein carrying three high affinity ...
