[Family-based association study of a variable number of tandem repeat polymorphism of DAT1 gene with Tourette syndrome in a Chinese Han population].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To assess the association of a 40 bp variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphism within 3 untranslated region of dopamine transporter gene (DAT1) with Tourette syndrome (TS) in a Chinese Han population. METHODS A total of 160 TS patients and their parents were recruited. The VNTR polymorphism was detected with polymerase chain reaction… (More)
