niversity of Cologne -- Scientists from Cologne and Amsterdam have discovered the mutations in human genetics, which cause the hereditary disease ponto cerebellar hypoplasia (PCH) of the types 2 and 4. β€œIn the case of PCH, the protein complex – the so-called tRNA-Splicing-Endonuclease, is mutated.
