Molecular genetics of congenital cataracts.
Last Updated: Jul 24, 2020

Congenital cataracts, the most common cause of visual impairment and blindness in children worldwide, have diverse etiologies. According to statistics analysis, about one quarter of congenital cataracts caused by genetic defects. Various mutations of more than one hundred genes have ...

Biology of Inherited Cataracts and Opportunities for Treatment.
Last Updated: May 08, 2020

Cataract, the clinical correlate of opacity or light scattering in the eye lens, is usually caused by the presence of high-molecular-weight (HMW) protein aggregates or disruption of the lens microarchitecture. In general, genes involved in inherited cataracts reflect important processes ...

Mouse models for microphthalmia, anophthalmia and cataracts.
Last Updated: Feb 25, 2020

Mouse mutants are a long-lasting, valuable tool to identify genes underlying eye diseases, because the absence of eyes, very small eyes and severely affected, cataractous eyes are easily to detect without major technical equipment. In mice, actually 145 genes or loci are known for ...

Intraocular deposits and cataracts after long-term rifabutin intake: A case report.
Last Updated: Jun 19, 2020

Rifabutin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic known to cause deposits on the corneal endothelium and lens. We report a patient in whom cataracts developed and progressive pigment deposits were seen on the corneal endothelium, lens, and iridocorneal angle.

Bi-allelic Variants in TKFC Encoding Triokinase/FMN Cyclase Are Associated with Cataracts and Multisystem Disease.
Last Updated: Apr 29, 2020

We report an inborn error of metabolism caused by TKFC deficiency in two unrelated families. Rapid trio genome sequencing in family 1 and exome sequencing in family 2 excluded known genetic etiologies, and further variant analysis identified rare homozygous variants in TKFC. TKFC ...
