Booster club plans meeting

Rett syndrome found

The discovery of the defective gene that causes Rett syndrome could help researchers develop a test to diagnose the disorder earlier.

Dr. Huda Y. Zoghbi of Houston's Baylor College of Medicine and Dr. Uta Francke of Stanford University School of Medicine collaborated for the past five years to find the gene. They traced the cause of Rett syndrome to a defect on the MECP2 gene on the X chromosome.

Rett syndrome is a neuro-developmental disorder that affects one in 10,000 girls.
