Exclusion of four candidate genes, KHDRBS2, PTP4A1, KIAA1411 and OGFRL1, as causative of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa

Ophthalmic Res. 2006;38(1):19-23. doi: 10.1159/000088493. Epub 2005 Sep 23.


To identify the disease gene in 6 Spanish families with autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa linked to the RP25 locus, mutation screening of 4 candidate genes, KHDRBS2, PTP4A1, KIAA1411 and OGFRL1, was undertaken based on their expression or functional relevance to the retina. Twenty-six single nucleotide polymorphisms were identified, of which 14 were novel. Even though no pathological mutations were detected, these genes however remain as good candidates for other retinal degenerations mapping to the same chromosomal region.
