Disease relevance of DSCR6

  • Both DSCR5 and DSCR6 genes are candidates for the pathogenesis of Down syndrome, although the function of these genes remains to be elucidated [1].

High impact information on DSCR6

  • The DSCR5 gene is expressed in various human tissues examined, whereas the DSCR6 gene is expressed only in limited tissues at low level [1].
  • DSCR5 and DSCR6 genes consist of 6 and 5 exons, respectively [1].
