The contribution of multiple genetic components in disease pathogenesis is relevant to both diseases of multifactorial and/or multigenic etiology such as the respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and to diseases where a single gene has been identified as the disease-causing gene. An example of the latter is cystic fibrosis (CF) where the disease-causing gene has been clearly identified as the CF transmembrane conductance regulator gene, but genetic variants of the mannose binding protein and… CONTINUE READING
