The association of variable number of tandem repeats of the insulin gene with susceptibility to type 1 diabetes among Korean subjects.

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is ethnic variation in the variable number of tandem repeats of the insulin gene (INS VNTR), one of the susceptibility loci for developing type 1 diabetes (T1D). We evaluated the influence of the genotypes and subdivisions of INS VNTR on the development of T1D in Korean subjects. METHODS The study included 352 Korean patients, under the… (More)
