OBJECTIVE The knowledge of the molecular basis of the Phenylketonuria (PKU, MIM# 261600) in different countries provides relevant information for undertaking specific and rational mutation detection strategies in each population and for the implementation of adequate dietary and cofactor treatment. There are no data available in Moroccan population. DESIGN AND METHODS In this work we describe the genetic analysis by mutation scanning using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) and… CONTINUE READING
