Abstract

We have screened the basal promoter region, of KRTHB6 gene involving CAAT and TATA boxes in randomly selected 125 individuals of Indian origin by PCR-SSCP and DNA sequencing. We observed a novel promoter polymorphism (-71C>T) which could be differentiated by using LweI restriction enzyme. The frequency of -71 C allele, allele A (Accession no AY203963), was observed to be higher ( 0.712) in comparison to -71 T allele, allele B (0.288) (Accession no. AY037552).
