Polymorphisms of TAP1 transporter genes in Chinese patients with systemic lupus erythematosus in Taiwan


The aim of this study was to determine how polymorphisms of transporters associated with transporter and antigen processing 1 (TAP1) alleles contributed to the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in Taiwan. We collected 88 patients with SLE and 104 healthy people for the control group. The polymorphisms were detected as a result of polymerase… (More)
