Development and evaluation of an unlabeled probe high-resolution melting assay for detection of ATP7B mutations in Wilson's disease.


BACKGROUND Wilson's disease (WD) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the deposition of copper mainly in the liver or nerve system that leads to their dysfunction. Mutations in the gene encoding ATPase, Cu+ transporting, beta polypeptide (ATP7B) are causative for WD. The aim of this study was to develop a rapid and convenient assay for… (More)
