"However, the lifetime penetrance of these BMPR2 mutations is 10% to 20%, suggesting that genetic and/or environmental modifiers are required for disease expression. Our goal in this study was to identify genetic loci that may influence FPAH expression in BMPR2 mutation carriers. We performed a genome-wide linkage scan in 15 FPAH families segregating for BMPR2 mutations. We used a dense...
