[24-bp duplication on CHIT1 gene in Mexican population].

Abstract

BACKGROUND human chitotriosidase is a secreted enzyme by activated macrophages, detectable in plasma. Levels of chitotriosidase indicate severity of Gaucher disease and monitoring the efficiency of the enzyme replacement therapy. The most frequent polymorphism in chitotriosidase-1 gene (CHIT1) corresponds to a 24-bp duplication (24-bp Dup) that in… (More)
