Use of PCR-based amplification analysis as a substitute for the southern blot method for CYP21 deletion detection in congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a common autosomal recessive disorder caused mainly by defects in the steroid 21-hydroxylase gene (CYP21) . The defective CYP21 genes in CAH fall into one ofExpand
