Abstract

Congenital vertebral malformations (CVMs) are associated with human TBX6 compound inheritance that combines a rare null allele and a common hypomorphic allele at the TBX6 locus. Our previous in vitro evidence suggested that this compound inheritance resulted in a TBX6 gene dosage of less than haploinsufficiency (i.e.
