Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the contribution of cytotoxic T-Iymphocyte antigen-4(CTLA-4)+49A/G polymorphism to the susceptibility to type-1 diabetes (T1D) in Turkish children. METHODS: A case-control study was designed to include 91 Turkish children with T1D and 99 healthy controls. CTLA-4 (+99A/G) gene polymorphism typing was done by PCR amplification followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism method. RESULTS: The genotype and allele frequencies of the CTLA-4 (+99A/G)polymorphism in patients with T1D were not different from those in the controls (p>0.05). The allele frequency of G was 36.2\% in patients with T1D,and 31.8\% in controls (p>0.05). Additionally, this polymorphism was not associated with the clinical and laboratory characteristics of the patients with T1D (p>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Our case-control study suggests that the CTLA-4 (+99A/G) gene polymorphism is not associated with T1D in the Turkish population.
