Mutations of PVRL1, encoding a cell-cell adhesion molecule/herpesvirus receptor, in cleft lip/palateectodermal dysplasia.
By comparing unaffected people to afflicted islanders and others with a similar syndrome, the team narrowed its gene search to an area on chromosome 11 and eventually to a gene called PVRL1.
He's also investigating mutations in two genes similar to PVRL1 as candidates for the cause of cleft lip and palate in people without the Margarita Island syndrome.
