Gene polymorphisms are locations within the genome that vary in sequence between individuals and are very prevalent, affecting at least 1% of the population (104). Polymorphisms of human genes occur at one or more of the following sites (Fig. 1): 1. the promoter or 5¢-flanking region; 2. the exon(s) or the gene coding regions; 3. the intron(s) or the gene intervening regions; 4. the 3¢-untranslated region (69). The most common form of polymorphisms is the single nucleotide polymorphism, which… CONTINUE READING
