The product of the deleted in colorectal carcinoma (DCC) gene has a role in apoptosis and is a positional candidate for IDDM6, the putative chromosome 18q12-q23 autoimmune disease locus. We hypothesised that a nonconservative substitution (DCC 201 R --> G; nucleotide (nt) 601 C --> G), located in an extracellular immunoglobulin-like domain of DCC, is an aetiological determinant of autoimmunity. We tested this hypothesis by genetically testing the nt 601 C --> G polymorphism for assoc...Expand abstract
