Functional characterization of splicing and ligand-binding domain variants in the LDL receptor.

Abstract

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant disorder mostly caused by mutations in the LDLR gene. Although the detection of functional mutations in the LDLR gene provides an unequivocal diagnosis of the FH condition, there are many variants whose pathogenicity is still unknown. The aims of this study were to set up a rapid method to… (More)
