High impact information on CHED1

  • The gene responsible for AD CHED (HGMW-approved symbol CHED1) has been mapped to the pericentromeric region of chromosome 20 [1].
  • CONCLUSION: These results confirm that mutations in the SLC4A11 gene cause autosomal recessive CHED [2].
  • METHODS: Members of 16 families with autosomal recessive CHED were genotyped for 13 microsatellite markers at the CHED2 locus on chromosome 20p13-12 [2].
