Linkage analysis of candidate regions for coeliac disease genes.
A strong HLA association is seen in coeliac disease [specifically to the DQ(alpha1*0501,beta1*0201 heterodimer], but this cannot entirely account for the increased risk seen in relatives of affected cases. One or more genes at HLA-unlinked loci also predispose to coeliac disease and are probably stronger determinants of disease susceptibility than HLA. A recent study has proposed a number of candidate regions on chromosomes 6p23 (distinct from HLA), 6p12, 3q27, 5q33.3, 7q31.3, 11p11, 15q26, 1...Expand abstract
