Surprisingly, we did not find a case of GCK associated with trisomy 21, which makes our case 14 the first reported.
We identified 5 definitive cases of GCK in the Western literature reported before 1950.

The protocol used for the GCK gene allowed us to establish a successful strategy for the development of PCR-SSCP on other genes such as BRCA1 (breast cancer 1, data not shown) on the basis of GC content and the length of PCR products.
A new customizable interface converts all GenBank and EMBL features 'one-to-one' to graphical GCK features, enabling molecular biologists to easily work with the latest DNA sequence information available via the Internet.
