Very low incidence of Arg506-->Gin mutation in the factor V gene among the Amazonian Indians and the Brazilian black population.
Rapid detection of factor V Leiden (FVQ506) by non-radioactive single strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP).
The transition G-->A at position 506 of the factor V gene is responsible for resistance to the anticoagulant effect of activated protein C (APC-resistance), and represents the most common hereditary… Expand
