S. Laube and C. Moss's "Pseudoxanthoma elasticum," Archives of Disease in Childhood 90 (2005): 754-756 provides a useful review on the medical presentation of PXE. Olivier Le Saux, et. al.'s "Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum Maps to an 820-kb Region of the p13.1 Region of Chromosome 16," Genomics 62 (1999): 1-10, presents the research from Charles Boyd's lab that allowed for them to patent the gene strongly associated with PXE, though see as well the earlier research on localizing the PXE gene on which Boyd's lab built, such as Berthold Struk, et. al., "Mapping of both autosomal recessive and dominant variants of pseudoxanthoma elasticum to chromosome 16p13.1," Human Molecular Genetics 6, no. 11 (1997): 1823-1828.
