The polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformation Polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) procedure was applied to examine whether the mutation in the liver/islet glucose transporter (GLUT2) gene could be associated with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) in Japanese. Samples were processed through 30-40 cycles of 1 min denaturation at 94 degrees C, 1 min annealing at 55-68 degrees C for 1-2 min, extention at 72 degrees C for 1 min, and denaturation at 94 degrees C for 1 min. We identified a silent mutation in codon 479 for PheTTT/TTC.
