DNA sequencing results and the pedigree chart. Shown here are the wild-type (panel a) and the C308Y mutation (panel b) DNA sequencing histograms. The nucleotide G at position 923 of exon 7 in the wildtype (arrow in panel a) was mutated to the nucleotide A (arrow in panel b) in the heterozygote. According to the DNA sequencing results, a pedigree chart was established (panel c). Unfilled squares are healthy males and filled squares are mutant males; unfilled circles indicate healthy females and filled circles mutant females. A cross line denotes a deceased individual and the arrow indicates proband
