Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A total of 12 different types of hereditary cataracts have been positively assigned to the gene map. They are located on autosomes as well as on the X chromosome. This establishes several kinds of cataracts as distinct diseases caused by different mutations. In selected cases the information may be helpful for prenatal diagnosis.
