Call for patients.

VATER association represents non-random co-occurrence of developmental defects including Vertebral defects, Anal atresia, Tracheo-Eosophageal fistula and Esophageal atresia and Radial limb reduction and Renal defects. Some patients also have defects in cardiac and limb development (VACTERL association).

We have isolated a candidate gene for VATER association by physical mapping of chromosomal breakpoints in a patient with a pericentric inversion of chromosome 3.

We have started screening our VATER/VACTERL patient cohort for mutations in this gene. We would like to collaborate with laboratories or clinical professionals in extending our patient cohort. We are open for any type of collaboration.
