  • Note=WBSCR16 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 WBSCR16 may be the cause of certain cardiovascular and musculo-skeletal abnormalities observed in the disease. {ECO:0000305 PubMed:12073013}.
