As mentioned previously, syndromes such as JBTS, SLSN (Leber congenital amaurosis), and Meckel-Gruber syndrome are encoded by genes whose protein products colocalize with most nephronophthisis responsible genes.
Although Meckel-Gruber syndrome affects around one in 200,000 births, where both parents carry the defective gene there is a one in four chance of a baby being born with the condition.
Dr Colin Johnson, who led the research, said: "Identifying mutations in this gene that are responsible for Meckel-Gruber syndrome, should make screening for this devastating genetic condition far easier.
