Ectopic expression of BBS1 rescues male infertility, but not retinal degeneration, in a BBS1 mouse model

Matthew Cring
Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare ciliopathy for which there are no current effective treatments. BBS is a genetically heterogeneous disease, though the M390R mutation in BBS1 is involved in approximately 25% of all genetic diagnoses of BBS. The principle features of BBS include retinal degeneration, obesity, male infertility, polydactyly, intellectual disability, and renal abnormalities. Patients with mutations in BBS genes often present with night blindness within the first decade of life, which progresses to...
