Abstract:
We identified a nonsense mutation (Gln45stop) in exon 3 of the dentin sialophosphoprotein (DSPP) gene in a Chinese family with dentinogenesis imperfecta Shields type II (DGI-II), in which the affected members showed discoloration and severe attrition of their teeth, with obliterated pulp chambers.
