Allele-specific quantification of TNFA transcripts in rheumatoid arthritis


Clinical and laboratory studies have suggested a pivotal role for tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFA) in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Interindividual variation in the expression of TNFA indicates the existence of functionally distinct TNFA alleles that could play a role in susceptibility to TNFA-associated diseases such as RA. In order to… (More)
