Analysis of -631 and -475 interleukin-2 promoter single nucleotide polymorphisms in multiple sclerosis.

Abstract

We have analysed the interleukin-2 (IL-2) promoter single nucleotide polymorphisms -475 A/T and -631 G/A, relative to the initiation codon, in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and in healthy controls. Both groups showed a very low frequency of T at -475 and A at -631. Our results suggest that these polymorphisms do not contribute to MS susceptibility.
