Polymorphisms in the T-Cell Regulatory Gene CTLA-4 influence the Rate of Acute Rejection after Liver Transplantation

Gut 55: 863-868, 2006 –

The cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4) gene encodes for a membrane bound (mCTLA-4) and a soluble (sCTLA-4) isoform, which are both involved in regulation of T cell function. The CTLA-4 +49A/G single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) influences expression of mCTLA-4; +6230G/A SNP affects the production of sCTLA-4.
