Identification of polymorphism at the glutathione S-transferase, GSTM3 locus: evidence for linkage with GSTM1*A
Allelism in the glutathione S-transferase, GSTM3 gene has been identified using PCR with specific primers to exon 6/exon 7. Sequencing showed the mutant GSTM3*B allele to have a three-base deletion in intron 6 with a frequency of 0.158. The mutation generates a recognition sequence, 5′-AAGATA-3′, for the negative transcription factor YY1. GSTM3*B was significantly associated with GSTM1*A.
