#Flash:Researchers Discovered A New Childhood Genetic Condit
A new disorder, Zaki syndrome characterized by multiorgan birth defects such as microcephaly, foot syndactyly, and heart defects has been identified. It is caused by partial loss-of-function mutations in the WLS gene which disrupts the Wnt signaling pathway. The authors for their study probed worldwide databases of 20,248 families with children with neurodevelopmental disorders to confirm the effects of the isolated mutations.Their findings suggest that pharmacologic intervention could be considered for some structural birth defects during gestation.
