Abstract

The genes involved in the pathogenesis of Dupuytren's disease have yet to be identified. In this study, we tested for an association between Dupuytren's disease (DD) and a novel insertion polymorphism within the 5′-untranslated region (5′-UTR), of the TGFβ 2 gene. DNA samples from 179 DD patients and 187 ethnically matched controls were examined. There was no statistically significant difference in TGFβ 2 allele frequency distributions between cases and controls for the TGFβ 2 polymorphism.
