undr construction gene locus 3q27;ACRO-DERMATO-UNGUAL-LACRIMAL-TOOTH SYNDROME or ADULT Syndrome; [A-D-U-L-T Syndrome or ADULTS]; Gene map locus 3 q 27;mutation in the TP63 gene; Family members were affected by a syndrome with variable expression, Features included ectrodactyly, (absent digits/rays/ulna) syndactyly, fingernail and toenail dysplasia, hypoplastic breasts and nipples, intensive freckling, lacrimal duct atresia, frontal alopecia, primary hypodontia, and loss of permanent teeth; Because of the phenotypic similarity with limb-mammary syndrome (LMS) which had been mapped to chromosome 3q27; studies placed the ADULT locus in the same chromosome region as the LMS locus, suggesting that these 2 conditions are allelic; a missense mutation in the TP63 gene, located at chromosome 3q27, in spontaneous germ cell mutation then the mutation was inherited with incomplete penetrance-----------------[OMIM]-----------------
