Germline mutations in an intermediate chain dynein cause primary ciliary dyskinesia

, , , , , , , &
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a genetically heterogeneous, autosomal recessive disorder caused by abnormal ciliary ultrastructure and function, characterized clinically by otosino-pulmonary disease. Mutations in an intermediate chain dynein (DNAI1: IC78) have recently been described in PCD patients, with outer dynein arm (ODA) defects. The aims of the current study were to test for novel DNAI1 mutations in 13 PCD patients with ODA defects (from 7 unrelated families) and to assess genotype/phenotype correlations in patients...
