Keratoconus is not associated with mutations in COL8A1 and COL8A2.


PURPOSE To evaluate the suggested role of the COL8A1 and COL8A2 genes in the pathogenesis of the corneal ectatic disorders keratoconus and keratoglobus through mutation screening in affected patients. METHODS DNA extraction, polymerase chain reaction amplification, and sequencing of COL8A1 and COL8A2 were performed in 50 unrelated keratoconus and 2… (More)
