Latest Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Stories
Children born with developmental disorders called cohesinopathies can suffer severe consequences, including intellectual disabilities, limb shortening, craniofacial anomalies, and slowed growth.
Researchers studying rare genetic disorders have uncovered insights into those diseases in biological structures that regulate chromosomes when cells divide.
Cohesin is a ring-shaped protein complex involved in the spatial organization of the genome and in mitotic chromosome structure.
A new study reveals that a common underlying mechanism is shared by a group of previously unrelated disorders which all cause complex defects in brain development and function.
