The haplotype distribution of the ΔF508 mutation in cystic fibrosis families in Scotland
- 31 Downloads
The gene defective in cystic fibrosis (CF) has recently been isolated and the major mutation identified. The haplotype distribution of this mutation (ΔF508) has been determined for 215 CF chromosomes in the Scottish population. ΔF508 represents 73% of all CF mutations in this group. There remains considerable linkage disequilibrium between XV2c and KM19 and other mutations in the CF gene.
