Cloning and developmental expression analysis of chick Hira (Chira), a candidate gene for DiGeorge syndrome.
Deletions within human chromosome 22q11 cause a wide variety of birth defects including the DiGeorge syndrome and velo-cardio-facial (Shprintzen) syndrome. Despite the positional cloning of several genes from the critical region, it is still not possible to state whether the phenotype is secondary to haploinsufficiency of one or more than one gene. In embryological studies phenocopies of these abnormalities are produced by a variety of actions which disrupt the contribution made by the crania...Expand abstract
