  • Note=WBSCR27 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region. Haploinsufficiency of WBSCR27 may be the cause of certain cardiovascular and musculo-skeletal abnormalities observed in the disease. {ECO:0000269 Ref.1}.
