Abstract The DNA sequence of the human IFN-gamma gene shows the presence of a variable-length CA repeat in the first intron of the gene. We investigated the allele distribution of this microsatellite region in 164 unrelated healthy individuals, and the association with interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) production. In vitro production of IFN-gamma showed a significant correlation with the presence of allele #2.
