- ZIC3 mutations in

  • non-heterotaxy cardiac malformations (congenital heart diseases)
    • atrial septal defect
    • pulmonic stenosis
    • X-linked transposition of the great arteries (TGA) (first zinc finger of ZIC3) (17295247)

Animal models

- altered embryonic murine Zic3 expression following targeted insertion of a PGK-NEO cassette (17127413)
