Polymorphic microsatellite sites in the PRNP region point to excess of homozygotes in Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease patients.


Polymorphic microsatellite sites within 148 kb of the human prion gene complex, including the genes PRNP, PRND and PRNT, were analysed together with the Codon129 variants regarding 50 CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease) patients and 46 non-diseased control persons. Three of the sites (MM03, MM04, Codon129) differed significantly (P<0.05) for their allele… (More)
