No evidence for association between the polymorphism in the 3' untranslated region of interleukin-12B and human susceptibility to tuberculosis.

Abstract

Interleukin (IL)-12 plays a pivotal role in cell-mediated immunity to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. We tested the association between a biallelic single-nucleotide polymorphism in the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of IL-12B and human susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB), in a population-based case-control study of adult patients with TB from 2… (More)
