This study investigated the role of the myelin oligodendrocye glycoportein (MOG) gene to reading disability in 22 children with dyslexia and 96 random controls. Results suggest that, although alleles in the MOG gene may be in linkage disequilibrium with a locus that contributes to reading disability, the MOG gene itself is probably not involved.
