25963163 novel missense substitutions in the VSX1 gene: clinical and genetic analysis of families with Keratoconus from India
24107477 Our investigation showed that Keratoconus-related VSX1 mutations were found in a very small proportion of the studied patients from Iran.
24099280 We cannot confirm the previously reported association of the polymorphism in the VSX1 gene with keratoconus (KC). Our results suggest a possible causative role of SOD1 in the pathogenesis of KC.
23592923 This study reports the presence of pathogenic mutations in VSX1 in posterior polymorphous dystrophy and keratoconus.
23506487 lack of VSX1 pathogenic variations in a large number of unrelated sporadic keratoconus patients tend to omit its role, and corroborate the involvement of other genetic, environmental or behavioural factors in the development of this complex disorder
23289806 Our findings confirmed previous reports that polymorphisms of VSX1 and IL1A genes were associated with risk of keratoconus in the Chinese population
22531431 Our results suggest that the VSX1 gene and its mutations with amino acid changes do not play a major role in the pathogenesis of keratoconus.
22171159 A significant association between keratoconus patients and VSX1 genetic alterations, is reported.
21976959 A novel mutation p.G239R and previously reported mutations were found in VSX1 in Italian patients with keratoconus.
21437200 In mice, Vsx1 mRNA, protein or reporter gene expression is not detected in the normal or damaged cornea.
