The intronic prothrombin 19911A>G polymorphism influences splicing efficiency and modulates effects of the 20210G>A polymorphism on mRNA amount and expression in a stable reporter gene assay system.

Abstract

The common prothrombin gene cleavage site mutation 20210G>A is associated with elevated prothrombin levels and thrombosis. The pathomechanism of the 20210G>A mutation was explained by increased mRNA formation and/or more efficient translation. Human studies also showed an influence of the intronic 19911A>G polymorphism on prothrombin activity. We… (More)
