The aim of this study is to determine if Müllerian agenesis has a genetic basis linked to the WNT genes. Genomic DNA analyses for mutations in the coding sequences of four members of this family in a series of 11 women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome found four variants in the coding sequence of these genes, but causal mutations were not observed. This supports the hypothesis that mutations in the coding sequence of WNT4, WNT5A, WNT7A, and WNT9B are not responsible for the Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome.
