A collection of DNA samples obtained from primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients from St. Petersburg was analyzed for single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) to reveal sequence variants in exon 3 of the myocilin gene (MYOC/TIGR) and in exons 4 and 5 of the optineurin gene (OPTN), where most of the mutations revealed worldwide are located.

In 32 unrelated patients with primary congenital glaucoma (PCG), a search for mutations in the myocilin (MYOC), cytochrome P450B1 (CYP1B1), and WDR36 genes was performed. The Q368X mutation in myocilin gene, typical of the patients with adult-onset primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), was not detected in the PCG patients. Screening of the CYP1B1 introns 2(More)
