Although OI-3 is rare, studies in affected persons from different parts of the world have revealed causative mutations in several genes: CRTAP, P3H1, FKBP10, PPIB, SERPINH1, SERPINF1, BMP1, SP7, WNT1, TMEM38B, PLOD2 and CREB3L1. [9] Mutations in FKBP10, which encodes FKBP65, have been reported in affected persons of Turkish, Mexican-American, [10] German, [11] Saudi Arabian, [12] indigenous black South African, [13] Indonesian, [14] Egyptian, [15] Italian, [16] Palestinian, [17] Lebanese, Sudanese, [18] Samoan, North American [17,19] and Chinese ancestry.

It should be mentioned also that in [32] instead of prooxidant toxicity of DOXO new alternative mechanism of doxorubicin antitumor effect is proposed, notably enhancement of de novo synthesis of ceramide, which in turn activates transcription factor CREB3L1. DOXO stimulates proteolytic cleavage of membrane-bound precursor of CREB3L1 by Site 1 Protease and Site 2 Protease, allowing the NH(2)-terminal domain of CREB3L1 to enter the nucleus and activate transcription of genes which encode inhibitors of the cell cycle, including p21.
