Marfan's Syndrome
2013-07-19 15:22:33

Marfan's syndrome is a genetic disorder of the connective tissue that causes excessively tall stature and long extremities. It is carried by the gene FBN1, which encodes the connective protein fibrillin-1, and is a dominant trait. The human genetic makeup contains a pair of FBN1 genes, so because of its dominance, inheriting one affected FBN1 gene from either parent will result in Marfan's syndrome. It effects both males and females, and has no ethnic bias. It was named after Antoine Marfan,...
