Molecular Basis of C4 Protein Deficiency in Aboriginal Australians, and a Molecular C4 Allotyping Technique
Since the initial discovery of the association between C4 protein deficiency and autoimmune disease, much effort has been devoted to the characterisation of C4 protein and its molecular composition (Dawkins et al., 1983). From the outset, researchers have found the C4 protein difficult to work with as it is unstable and degrades rapidly. However, with the advent of molecular techniques, studies of the C4 gene have accelerated, uncovering a very complicated and large duplicated gene...[Show more]
