abstract

  • NANOS3 encodes an RNA-binding protein and has a conserved function in germ cell development. Our objective was to investigate whether mutations in NANOS3 were present in Chinese and Caucasian women with premature ovarian failure. A known synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphism (rs 2016163) in exon 1 was identified through sequencing 80 Chinese and 88 Caucasian women with premature ovarian failure. No additional single-nucleotide polymorphisms or mutations were found in exons encoding for NANOS3. Our findings suggest that mutations in NANOS3 exons are rare in both Chinese and Caucasian women with premature ovarian failure. © 2007 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
