Seeing clearly: the dominant and recessive nature of FOXE3 in eye developmental anomalies.
FOXE3 is a lens-specific transcription factor with a highly conserved forkhead domain previously implicated in congenital primary aphakia and anterior segment dysgenesis. Here, we identify new recessive FOXE3 mutations causative for microphthalmia, sclerocornea, primary aphakia, and glaucoma in two extended consanguineous families by SNP array genotyping followed by a candidate gene approach. Following an additional screen of 236 subjects with developmental eye anomalies, we report two furthe...Expand abstract
