Disease relevance of CYMD


High impact information on CYMD


Biological context of CYMD

  • RESULTS: The C7orf9 cDNA transcript consists of 1190 bp and is organized into 3 exons on the short arm of chromosome 7 within the critical region for CYMD [4].

Associations of CYMD with chemical compounds


Other interactions of CYMD

  • Results of our comprehensive mutation analysis suggests that C7orf9 is not the CYMD gene [4].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of CYMD

  • C7orf9 was evaluated as a candidate gene for CYMD by DNA sequencing and Southern blot analysis in two affected individuals from an extended Dutch CYMD family [4].
  • The electro-oculogram (EOG) was studied in 156 normal patients, 103 patients with Best's disease, and 52 patients with dominant cystoid macular dystrophy (DCMD) [6].
