Clinical Implication of the C Allele of the ITPKC Gene SNP rs28493229 in Kawasaki Disease: Association With Disease Susceptibility and BCG Scar Reactivation.


BACKGROUND a functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) (rs28493229) in the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate 3-kinase C (ITPKC) gene has been linked to the susceptibility to Kawasaki disease (KD). The implication remains unclear. SUBJECTS AND METHODS genotyping for the ITPKC polymorphism was conducted on 280 unrelated Taiwanese children with KD and 492… (More)
