TGFB2, ylFN AND TCRB Jan Hillert, Bing He, Arturs Ligers, Chun Xu, Anna Fogdell and Olle Olerup Depts of Neurology and Clinical Immunology, Karolinska Institute at Huddinge Univesity hospital Rackgrorrnd: The relevance of analyses of candidate genes in complex disorders such as MS has been debated but such efforts have occasionally been successful We have analysed a number of genes, most of which are of immune function, for a possible role in MS A number of these have yielded data indicating that they may actually be of importance, whereas most others, as expected, have been negative Matenals and A~lethocJ.s: 46 nuclear families with at least 2 individuals with MS, 200 unrelated patients with MS and 123 healthy controls were investigated for linkage and association for a number of single base substitutions or microsatellite markers Analyses were peformed by Chi2, transmission test, 2-point linkage and APM analysis I)isetissioti: Most convincing data were found for CTLA4 where most tests were positive In addition, both the ylFN and TCR~3 genes are located in chromosomal regions previously suggested to be relevant in http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multiple Sclerosis SAGE
