|Title:||Genotype frequencies at codon 129 of the Prion Protein Gene in Brazil: implications in susceptibility to variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease compared to European and Asian populations|
|Author:||de Paula, EV|
|Abstract:||A polymorphism at codon 129 of the prion protein gene has been shown to confer genetic susceptibility to prion diseases, and to influence the epidemic course of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease. We employed a PCR-endonuclease digestion-based assay to investigate this genetic trait in Brazil, and then compared our results to previously published data from several European and Asian countries.|
