AbstractTo investigate the possible genetic association of nonsyndromic X-linked mental retardation (NS-XLMR) with FTSJ1 gene polymorphisms, a case–control association study was performed focusing on the Chinese Han population in the Qinba mountain region. Three common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs2268954, rs2070991, rs5905692) in the gene were selected and genotyped using the polymerase chain reaction single-strand confirmation polymorphism (PCR–SSCP) method. Pairwise linkage… CONTINUE READING
