Comparison of complementary and genomic DNA sequencing for the detection of mutations in the HMBS gene in British patients with acute intermittent porphyria: identification of 25 novel mutations


Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a low-penetrant autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the hydroxymethylbilane synthase (HMBS) gene. Direct detection of mutations is becoming the method of choice for the accurate identification of asymptomatic affected individuals within AIP families so that they can be advised to avoid drugs and other… (More)
