Investigation of Genetic Disease Marker Associated With Korean Glaucoma Patients

2014-08-27 03:17:32 | BioPortfolio


A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis of DNA obtained from peripheral blood of the glaucoma patients and the normal control will be performed to find genetic marker for primary open angle glaucoma.


Unrelated Korean subjects who have primary open angle glaucoma were recruited in the current study. Genotyping for various SNP associated with POAG due to the linkage disequilibrium patterns is to be performed. Genotypes would be statistically compared between patients with primary open angle glaucoma and normal control subjects free of any eye diseases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.

A single nucleotide variation in a genetic sequence that occurs at appreciable frequency in the population.

Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.
