Inconsistent results concerning the association of polymorphisms in the MYO9B gene with celiac disease (CD) have been recently published. This gene encodes a myosin with a guanosine-triphosphatase (GTPase)-activating protein domain for the Rho-family of small G proteins, which are involved in cytoskeleton remodeling and therefore potentially involved in intestinal permeability. Functional and positional reasons led us to investigate the role of MYO9B polymorphisms in the Spanish CD population… CONTINUE READING
