Multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human urate transporter 1 (hURAT1) gene are associated with hyperuricaemia in Han Chinese.

OBJECTIVE The present study investigated whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the human urate transporter 1 (hURAT1) gene are associated with primary hyperuricaemia (HUA) in Han Chinese people. METHODS A total of 538 subjects (215 cases and 323 control subjects) were recruited from Qingdao, China. SNPs in potentially functional regions of the… CONTINUE READING
