Investigation of Regulatory Genes in Pathophysiology of Craniosynostosis


About this study

The purpose of this study is to collect tissue (during the initial procedure only) that is surgically removed (and routinely discarded at Mayo Clinic) from CS patients. Portions of the tissue will be embedded in plastic for histological and histomorphometric analysis. A small portion of the tissue will be used for outgrowth cultures to isolate cells. Nucleic acid and protein will be extracted from the remaining portions of the tissue and/or isolated cell lines to examine candidate genes and their role in the disease process.
