While PFO in humans is in most cases clinically benign, it can nonetheless be regarded as a mild variant of ASD, and indeed our studies in mice strongly support the hypothesis that there is a pathological continuum between PFO and ASD. In the course of our studies, we recognised a pronounced variability in the frequency of PFO and other septal abnormalities between inbred strains of wildtype mice. These strain-specific effects also profoundly modify the incidence and severity of septal defects in Nkx2-5 heterozygotes.

Based on preliminary studies, at least three genes can cause ASD. To date there have been no report of a gene whose mutation causes a simple, common heart defect such as ASD. Identification of such genes would provide an important perspective of both normal and abnormal cardiac development. ; Professor; Children's Hospital of Philadelphia 34Th St and Civic Ctr Blvd Philadelphia, Pa 191044399 Timing: Fiscal Year 2004; Project Start 15-FEB-2004; Project End 31-JAN-2009 Summary: (provided by applicant): Gene abnormalities have now been demonstrated to be responsible for the pathogenesis of a number of types of congenital heart disease.

JMJ is a novel protein whose molecular function remains unknown. JMJ contains the putative DNA binding domain that is homologous to the DNA binding transcription factor family, ARID. JMJ also contains the homologous region to the retinoblastoma binding protein (RBP) that binds to the retinoblastoma gene product (Rb). Rb is a key regulator of cell growth and differentiation. Our preliminary studies indicate that JMJ is a DNA-binding nuclear protein that contains a transcriptional repressor domain.
