17158010 We reported here an infant with MoCD who presented with hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy and identified a novel mutation, c.130C>T in cDNA of the MOCS2 gene from the infant.
16737835 There was undisturbed production of both transcripts, while Western blot analysis demonstrated that MOCS2B, the large subunit, is unstable in the absence of MOCS2A.
12754701 Review: A total of 32 different disease-causing mutations, including several common to more than one family, have been identified in molybdenum cofactor-deficient patients and their relatives
12732628 analysis of sites within MOCS2 where mutations cause molybdenum cofactor deficiency
