Note from the editor:

This CALL message contains three submessages:

1) CALL for collaboration in somatic gene therapy

2) CALL for markers on chromosome 12q13

3) additional replies on the CALL about the Simpson case

The CALL TOPIC is open for FREE CALLS for assistance or offering of
help in the field of Human Genetics. Please state and specify your
CALL as precisely as possible, and include your name and E-mail adress
at the bottom of the message.

Good CALLS ;-)

Subject: Gene Therapy Researchers

Dear HUM-MOLGENeticists,
I am interested in contacting researchers involved in the development
of somatic gene therapies.  I am working in the area of cancer gene
therapy but would like to hear from just about anyone involved in
trialling therapies involving genes at the  clinical, animal or in
vitro stage.

From: DAOUST martin <daoustm@ERE.UMONTREAL.CA>
Subject: markers

To everybody,

I am looking for makers of any kind (VNTR, CA, STS, etc.) near the aquaporin
gene on chromosome 12q13 region.  Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you

Martin Daoust

FYI - OMIM hasn't yet been updated to cover the reference, Cook, EH, Stein,
MA, Krasowski, MD, Cox, NJ, Olkon, DM, Kieffer, JE & Leventhal, BL. (1995)
Association of attention-deficit disorder and the dopamine transporter
gene," American Journal of Human Genetics 56:993-999.

Briefly, linkage disequilibrium was found between a VNTR in the 3' UTR of
SLC6A3 (dopamine transporter) and ADHD using haplotype-based relative risk.
Of course, independent replication is necessary.

My lab has been declared an OJ-Free Zone - a safe haven from media and
conversational bombardment ... I'm dying to give you details e.g. what I
overheard on "Hard Copy" last night.....
