    While this manuscript was in press, a paper was published by Reiter et al (Eur J Oral Sci. 2012, 120(2):97-103. doi: 10.1111) in which they found that patients with submucous cleft palate had  increased allele frequency at SNP rs5752638 of the gene MN1 compared to control individuals. This further supports a possible role for MN1 in cleft palate biology.
