25608830 Rare cases of congenital arthrogryposis multiplex caused by novel recurrent CHRNG mutations.
25411939 Two siblings with Escobar syndrome caused by homozygous mutations of the CHRNG gene were identified.
23448903 No mutations were found in CHRNG, CHRND and CHRNA1 genes of Indian families with Escobar syndrome.
22167768 We did not identify a clear difference in mutation spectrum of the CHRNG gene between lethal form and non-lethal forms of multiple pterygium syndromes

18988640 Detection of PAX3/7-FKHR fusion gene by one-step RT-PCR is useful in the diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcomas (RMS) and that AChR-gamma is overexpressed in Chinese RMS patients.
18625075 This study suggests for the first time in humans, a possible role for genetic variation in the neuromuscular nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, particularly the gamma subunit, in systolic blood pressure regulation
18625075 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18502212 constructed and characterized four AChR gamma extracellular domain variants
16826531 Mutations cxause lethal and nonlethal forms of multiple pterygium syndrome.
16826520 CHRNG mutations identified in families with Escobar syndrome show that the trait is a congenital dysmorphology caused by transient inactivation of the neuromuscular endplate.
16435141 A good correlation was found between the expression of PAX3/7-FKHR and AChR, while MyoD1 was more sensitive but less specific.
