Abstract:Background: Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) is a congenital disease that arises from defective intestinal neural system. LncRNA HOTTIP is a critical gene in various diseases, including HSCR. No epidemiological studies have explored the correlation between lncRNA HOTTIP single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and HSCR risk. We here lead as a pioneer to explore whether SNPs in lncRNA HOTTIP impact the risk of HSCR and HSCR subtypes in an unrelated Chinese population. Methods: We used the TaqMan method to genotype rs3… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
