Pathways to Cure
The endpoint of research in human biology is cure of diseases and improvement in the quality and longevity of life. DNA, the basic molecule of life, has been the target of study and treatment over the last few decades. Techniques to correct the gene defect underlying Mendelian disorders are being pursued along with various forms of

The Clinical Spectrum of RASopathies
The flASopathies are a specific group of genetic syndromes that occur as a result of germline mutations in genes encoding proteins of the flas–mitogen-activated protein kinase "flAS–MAPK) pathway "Fig 1). These developmental disorders include Neurofibromatosis type 1 "NF1), the first flASopathy identified, followed by Noonan

An approach to genetic disorders affecting the white matter
The white matter lies beneath the gray matter and consists of millions of nerve fibre bundles (axons) that serve as functional circuits linking different regions of the brain. White matter forms the bulk of the deep parts of the brain and the superficial parts of the spinal cord. Aggregates of gray matter are spread within the cerebral white matter. The

Therapy for genetic disorders: How far have we come?
Achondroplasia is the most common chondrodysplasia in humans. Gain of function mutation in the FGFR3 causes achondroplasia. FGFR3 is a receptor tyrosine kinase, which negatively regulates growth plate activity, leading to short stature. C Natriuretic Peptide (CNP) was identi􀈴ed as an antagonist of fgfr3 in mouse models. CNP has a low plasma half
