Genetics of Primordial Dwarfism 🧬

📄 Paper (in progress)

Primordial dwarfism is a rare form of dwarfism where babies are born small and stay small. One gene that causes this when mutated, both in mice and humans, is Cenpj, but the mechanisms how this occurs was unclear. By understanding what regulates growth normally, we might gain an insight into how this becomes dysregulated in cancer.
