23563607 Single nucleotide polymorphisms in GNAT2 gene is associated with obesity.
23362848 The majority (n = 12) of patients were either homozygotes or compound heterozygotes for known achromatopsia alleles, two in CNGB3 (p.T383fsX and p.T296YfsX9) and three in CNGA3 (p.R283Q, p.R427C and p.L527R).
21267001 Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, splice mutations, and small deletions and insertions in the affected genes cause achromatopsia.
21107338 Clinical and genetic investigation of a large Tunisian family with complete achromatopsia: identification of a new nonsense mutation in GNAT2 gene.
20603337 Expression of GNAT2 transgene, when found in rod photoreceptor cells rather than in cones, demonstrates different mechanisms of amplification in the body's G-protein alpha cascades and the activation of phosphodiesterase 6.
19592100 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15094710 We detected a deletion of a highly conserved lysine at codon 270 in a critical functional area of the alpha-cone transducin molecule, and therefore is not the disease causing mutation.
12077706 mutations in GNAT2 are implicated in achromatopsia
