A point mutation in an invariant splice donor site leads to exon skipping in two unrelated Dutch patients with dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency


Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) deficiency is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by thymine-uraciluria and associated with a variable clinical phenotype. In order to identify the molecular defect underlying complete DPD deficiency in a Dutch patient previously shown to have a 165 base pair deletion in the mature DPD mRNA, we cloned the… (More)
