Abstract

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disease caused by mutations in the low-density lipoprotein receptor gene. Among the more than 200 mutations so far identified, the T705I substitution in exon 15, designated FH-Paris 9, has been previously described as an FH-causing mutation. During the course of denaturing gradient gel electrophoretic screening of exon 15 we have identified the T705I single-base substitution not only in an FH family but also in a control, normocholesterolemic population. Therefore, we conclude that FH-Paris 9 is a missense mutation not associated with FH.
