New single nucleotide polymorphisms in the coding region of human TNFR2: association with systemic lupus erythematosus

We recently reported the association of the allele coding for Arg at the position 196 (196R: nucleotide [nt] 587G) of tumor necrosis factor receptor 2 (TNFR2, TNF-R75) with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in Japanese. In the present study, we completed the variation screening of the entire coding region of TNFR2. Three new single nucleotide polymorphisms… CONTINUE READING
