Kumar, Arun (2000) Rett and ICF syndromes: methylation moves into medicine. In: Journal of Biosciences, 25 (3). pp. 213-214.
Two human genetic disorders, Rett and ICF syndromes, have recently been shown to be caused by mutations in genes encoding proteins involved in gene silencing through DNA methylation. Rett (RTT) syndrome is a progressive childhood neurodevelopmental disorder that affects females exclusively with an incidence of 1 in 10,000–15,000 female births.
