ABSTRACT We report five novel VMD2 mutations in Best's macular dystrophy patients (S16F, I73N, R92H, V235L, and N296S). An SSCP analysis of the VMD2 11 exons revealed electrophoretic mobility shifts exclusively in exons 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8. Direct sequencing indicated that these shifts are caused by mono-allelic transition in exons 2, 4, 6, 8 and transversion in exons 3 and 6. Five novel "silent" polymorphisms are also reported: 213T>C, 323C>A, 1514A>G, 1661C>T, and 1712T>C. Hum Mutat 17:235, 2001.
