Abstract: Purpose: To identify the causative gene for autosomal dominant total congenital cataract in a six-generation Australian family displaying linkage to chromosome 1p36. Methods: Eight candidate genes (HSPB7, FBXO42, EFHD2, ZBTB17, CAPZB, FBLIM1, ALDH4A1, and MFAP2) from within the previously defined linkage interval were selected based on expression in lens and their known or putative function. The coding exons were sequenced in multiple affected family members and compared to the reference sequence. Results: No segregating mutations were identified in any of the eight genes. Thirty-one polymorphisms were detected, 20 of which were in the exons and 11 in the flanking introns. Conclusions: Coding mutations in HSPB7, FBXO42, EFHD2, ZBTB17, CAPZB, FBLIM1, ALDH4A1, and MFAP2 do not account for congenital cataract in this family.
