OBJECTIVE To identify and investigate the susceptibility genes of Kashin-Beck disease (KBD) in Chinese population. METHODS Whole-exome capturing and sequencing technology was used for the detection of genetic variations in 19 individuals from six families with high incidence of KBD. A total of 44 polymorphisms from 41 genes were genotyped from a total of 144 cases and 144 controls by using MassARRAY under the standard protocol from Sequenom. Association was applied on the data by using PLINK1… CONTINUE READING
