BACKGROUND: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is one of the most common congenital heart defects. Transcription factor AP-2 beta (TFAP2B) mutations are associated with the Char syndrome, a disorder associated with PDA, and with facial and fingers abnormalities. Recently, we identified two TFAP2B mutations in two families without Char syndrome phenotype, c.601+5G>A and c.435_438delCCGG, and these TFAP2B mutations were associated with familial isolated PDA. The aim of this study was to identify...Expand abstract
