Leber congenital amaurosis is an eye disorder that primarily affects the retina, which is the specialized tissue at the back of the eye that detects light and color. Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a part of the spectrum of early-onset retinal Autosomal recessive Leber congenital amaurosis.

Founder s : Andre Watson, Christian Foster Research Focus: Uses ligands to deliver gene therapies to their target areas Major Project: A myriad of gene editing modalities to be able to target cell-specific receptors. Ligandal has developed next-generation, non-viral protein-based biomaterials to effectively deliver gene therapy materials. They do this by harnessing the power of ligands, which are small biomolecules that are designed to dock at specific receptors on the cell surface. Keith Joung and David R. Doudna, Martin Jinek, Rachel E. Haurwitz Research Focus: CRISPR based technologies for bio-research, therapeutics and agricultural industries Major Project: In a partnership with Novartis, Caribou is planning on soon deploying their technology for high throughput screening Caribou Biosciences CaribouBio is one of the companies using CRISPR technology developing tools that provide transformative capabilities to therapeutics, biological research, agricultural biotechnology, and industrial biotechnology. They aim to achieve success in each of these industries by collaborating with industry leaders in the respective areas. Their mission is to develop new medical therapies and bio-products that would benefit not only human health, but society as a whole. In this comprehensive eBook we describe the process of generating knockout cell pools and clonal cell lines and explore their applications. Doudna, George Church , J.

The goal is to also assist farmers by providing them with new varieties of crops that require less resources to grow. They have licenses to base-editing technology from Harvard University, through the research of their founders.

Leveraging this technology, they hope to solve the big problems faced by the agricultural industry. Their aim is to develop "customized" seeds.


Inari Agriculture is an agro-biotechnology company that is revolutionizing the agricultural industry through transformational plant breeding technology. Exonics Therapeutics ExonicsTx aims to develop transformative gene-editing therapies for severe genetic neuromuscular diseases. This company was initially launched to advance the research of Dr. Eric Olson and his laboratory. There are exciting times ahead for this small start-up as it was recently acquired by a pharmaceutical giant- Vertex Pharmaceuticals.

To see this object clearly, the person tries to move the head to the object. However, when the heat is turned towards the object, it exists in the scotoma area and disappears again.

Then, the person turns the head further and the object enters the visible area and it reappears again clearly and sharply. The color of the fundus reflex in the light-adapted state may be also as golden-yellow, yellow-white or gray-white.

The phenomenon has been described in Oguchi disease an autosomal recessive stationary night blindness and X-linked cone dystrophy. It has been hypothesized that excessive extracellular potassium in the retina might be related to this phenomenon.

However, in this phenomenon, the pupils constrict bilaterally paradoxically in darkness.

It has been reported in the patients with Leber's congenital amaurosis, congenital stationary night-blindness, congenital nystagmus or achromatopsia, strabismus, amblyopia, bilateral optic neuritis, and dominant optic atrophy. Pseudo-Graefe phenomenon may occur congenitally or acquirable following oculomotor paralysis and intracranial aneurysms, traumas and tumors. Because a decreased luminance increases retinal processing time, the information reaching the cortex delays relative to the normal eye.

This delay in time between the two eyes is interpreted by the cortex as a separation in space. The movement is always perceived as toward the diseased eye, counterclockwise and the other eye clockwise. Pulfrich phenomenon can occur in ocular injury, ischemia, or glaucomatous optic nerve damage and resolved optic neuritis. Entoptic phenomena were first described by Johann Purkinje. It may be distinguished from a real image with the lack of tracking with eye or retinal movement.

Dominant genetic disorders occur when only a single copy of an abnormal gene is necessary for the appearance of the disease. The abnormal gene can be inherited from either parent, or can be the result of a new mutation gene change in the affected individual.

Emery and Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics - 6th Edition

The risk of passing the abnormal gene from affected parent to offspring is 50 percent for each pregnancy regardless of the sex of the resulting child. X-linked recessive genetic disorders are conditions caused by an abnormal gene on the X chromosome.

Females who have a disease gene present on one of their X chromosomes are carriers for that disorder. A male has one X chromosome and if he inherits an X chromosome that contains a disease gene, he will develop the disease.

Males with X-linked disorders pass the disease gene to all of their daughters, who will be carriers. A male cannot pass an X-linked gene to his sons because males always pass their Y chromosome instead of their X chromosome to male offspring.

Female carriers of an X-linked disorder have a 25 percent chance with each pregnancy to have a carrier daughter like themselves, a 25 percent chance to have a non-carrier daughter, a 25 percent chance to have a son affected with the disease, and a 25 percent chance to have an unaffected son.

Less often, cone dystrophy may be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Recessive genetic disorders occur when an individual inherits the same abnormal gene for the same trait from each parent.

If an individual receives one normal gene and one gene for the disease, the person will be a carrier for the disease, but usually will not show symptoms. The risk for two carrier parents to both pass the defective gene and, therefore, have an affected child is 25 percent with each pregnancy.

The risk to have a child who is a carrier like the parents is 50 percent with each pregnancy. The chance for a child to receive normal genes from both parents and be genetically normal for that particular trait is 25 percent. The risk is the same for males and females.

Affected Populations Cone dystrophy affects males and females in equal numbers when it occurs sporadically or is inherited as an autosomal dominant or recessive trait. The X-linked recessive form of cone dystrophy only affects males fully, although some females may have mild symptoms of the disorder. The exact incidence of cone dystrophy is unknown and estimates tend to vary in the medical literature. Most sources estimate the incidence as approximately 1 in 30, individuals in the general population.

Leber's congenital amaurosis

Cone dystrophy is usually present in early infancy or during childhood or early adulthood. However, the disorder has been reported to develop in individuals of all ages including older adults. Related Disorders Symptoms of the following disorders can be similar to those of cone dystrophy. Comparisons may be useful for a differential diagnosis.

Cone-rod dystrophies are a rare group of eye disorders that affect both the cone and rod cells of the retina. In some cases, individuals experience deterioration of the cone cells more severely than the rod cells. In these cases, the initial symptoms are decreased clarity acuity of vision when looking straight ahead central , loss of the ability to perceive color and an abnormal sensitivity to light photophobia.

When the rod cells become more involved, affected individuals experience a decreased ability to see at night or in low light situations and may lose the ability to see clearly to the sides peripheral vision. In rare cases, cone and rod cells deteriorate simultaneously and these symptoms occur at approximately the same time. Most cases of cone-rod dystrophies occur due to mutations of certain genes. Several different genes have been linked to cone-rod dystrophy.

Cone-rod dystrophies can be inherited as autosomal recessive, dominant, X-linked or mitochondrial maternally-inherited traits. Affected infants are often blind at birth or lose their sight within the first few of years of life. Stargardt disease is a rare juvenile form of macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is a general term for a group of eyes disorders characterized by the deterioration of the oval-shaped yellow spot macula near the center of the retina.
