Lack of association between gene polymorphism of transporters associated with antigen processing and allergic rhinitis in a Japanese population.

Abstract

Gene products of TAP1 and TAP2 (transporters associated with antigen processing) are involved in antigen presentation. It has been reported that polymorphisms in the TAP1 gene are associated with atopy in Tunisians. We designed a case-control study to investigate the potential association of polymorphisms of the TAP1 gene with allergic rhinitis in a… (More)
