Transforming growth factor-beta1 polymorphisms in Korean patients with systemic sclerosis.


Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of systemic sclerosis (SSc). To investigate the role of TGF-beta1 gene polymorphisms in SSc, we genotyped six biallelic polymorphic positions (position -988, -800, and -509; and codons 10, 25, and 263) in 61 Korean SSc patients and in 148 healthy controls, using… (More)
