A FAS -670A/G single nucleotide polymorphism may be associated with HTLV-1 infection and clinical evolution to TSP/HAM

Abstract

FAS and FASL genes are closely linked to the mechanism of the immune system and several polymorphisms in these genes have been associated with susceptibility to diseases. This study investigated the polymorphisms at positions -670 in the FAS gene, and -169 (IVS3nt169) and -124 (IVS2nt-124) in the FASL gene, among HTLV-1/2 infected subjects. Blood samples… (More)
