Dentinogenesis imperfecta 1 (DGI1, MIM 125490) is an autosomal dominant dental disease characterized by abnormal dentin production and mineralization. The DGI1 locus was recently refined to a 2-Mb interval on 4q21 (ref. 1). Here we study three Chinese families carrying DGI1. We find ...
The dentin matrix acidic phosphoprotein 1 (DMP1) gene has been mapped to human chromosome 4q21 and shown to exhibit no recombination with the autosomal dominant disorder of dentin formation, dentinogenesis imperfecta type II. In the current study, sequencing of DMP1 cDNA and genomic ...
