Vietnamese scientists discover three new gene mutations that cause syndactyly in children
Since 2017, Dr. Ngoc and her colleagues collaborated with the Genome Research Institute, Vietnam National Hospital of Pediatrics, to find the gene mutations associated with finger adhesion defects. During the study, the scientists discovered three new gene mutations in the genes GJA1, GLI3 and ESCO2 in patients with mild toe-to-finger fusion, with genetic factors in the family.
To learn more about the research process of the web portal of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, we would like to introduce to readers the report "Scientist looking for the cause of hand-limb defects in children" conducted by VTC9 channel. Presented on the occasion of celebrating Vietnam Science and Technology Day 18/5.
