  • Association of facilitated glucose transporter 2 gene variants with the myelomeningocele phenotype

    Association of facilitated glucose transporter 2 gene variants with the myelomeningocele phenotype

    The rare allele T of rs5402 is associated with shorter CA repeat in MM patients. The top panel shows homozygote TT alleles of rs5402 in one MM patient with 15 to 17 CA repeats. The middle panel shows heterozygote AT alleles of rs5402 in another patient with 15 to 17 CA repeats. The bottom panel shows another patient with homozygote AA alleles of rs5402 with 18 to 20 CA repeats.

    Microscopic examination of the spinal cord and vertebra at the C1 level (A). At higher resolution, the spinal cord shows partial duplication with two central canals and anterior sulci (B) and the vertebral body reveals two primary ossification centers (C).
