The DNASE1 gene is regarded as one of the susceptible genes for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Recent studies have detected the presence of a variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphisms at intron 4 in this gene. The current study aimed to investigate the influence of current polymorphism on SLE susceptibility in a sample of the Iranian… CONTINUE READING
