CT60 and +49 polymorphisms of CTLA 4 are associated with ANCA-positive small vessel vasculitis.
OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen-4 (CTLA-4) are associated with ANCA-associated small vessel vasculitis (SVV). METHODS: The CTLA-4 CT60 (exon 4), +49 (exon 1) and -318 (promoter region) genotypes were determined by PCR and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) in 222 white Caucasians of UK origin with SVV and 670 ethnically matched controls. RESULTS: The CTLA-4 exon 1 (+49) and 4 (CT60) polymorphisms are ...Expand abstract
