Abstract: Hischsprung disease (HSCR) is an intestinal disorder with strong genetic components. RET was considered as the strongest contributor. Multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) were demonstrated as associated with HSCR in different populations. However, whether the associations of reported SNPs derived from one causal variants or congregations of multiple variants were still not clear. In this study, we successfully genotyped 16 SNPs in RET with a largest case-control study to date, totaling 1470 HSCR and …
