from HealthDay News via MedlinePlus
A new gene associated with a rare form of blindness from birth has been identified by researchers. According to the report published online in the journal Nature Genetics, mutations in the NMNAT1 gene are linked to Leber congenital amaurosis, an inherited retinal degenerative disease that causes reduced vision in infants. Signs of vision loss are apparent in the first few months of life.
