High impact information on TEKT3

  • The Tekt3 gene maps to murine chromosome 11 in a region that is syntenic to the human 17p12 chromosomal region containing the human TEKTIN3 gene [1].
  • TEKT3 and PMP22 probes detected proportionate copy number increases in five patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Type 1a disease and chromosome 17p12 duplications [2].
