Expanding the panel of MEFV mutations for routine testing of patients with a clinical diagnosis of familial Mediterranean fever.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Since the identification of the MEFV gene 198 mutations have been identified, not all of which are pathologic. The screening methods used in Israel to test patients suspected of having FMF include a kit that tests for the five main mutations (M694V, V726A, M680Ic/g, M694I, E148Q), and the sequencing of MEFV exon 10 in combination with restriction… (More)
