Fanconi anaemia, how was the FANCA gene identified?

FANCA fanconi anaemia gene

Best Answer bob1, 24 October 2013 - 11:31 AM

The structure of DNA wasn't described until 1953, so I seriously doubt that the gene was isolated before then...  Fanconi described the condition in 1927, but the genetics will be much later.

 

Have a look at reference 8 in the references list...

Hi,

 

I've to do some research and makes notes on Fanconi anaemia.

 

I have to describe how the causative FANCA gene was identified and state what the protein does?

 

I have been using OMIM 227650, however i'm struggling to extract the required information. It says that its was first described in 1927 but i cant find what technique was used to determine the FANCA gene.

 

Thanks

 

Frazer
