  1. Positive findings on chromosome 13, NBEAL2?

    although this paper was of interest to me, I would like to point out a little mistake in the reference to a gene of interest on chromosome 13 in your discussion.

    This Neurobeachin gene, is abbreviated as NBEA and lies on chromosome 13.

    On the other hand Neurobeachin-like 2, NBEAL2, as is formulated in your discussion to be present on chromosome 13, lies on chromosome 3 and thus probably wasn't the gene you intended to discuss.

    Kind regards.
