Abstract

Naturally occurring variation in gene copy number is increasingly recognized as a major source of inter-individual differences in phenotype and is an important susceptibility factor for genetically complex diseases. Several studies provide evidence of copy number variation at genes involved in inflammation and immunity highlighting their possible contribution to the inter-individual variation observed in immune responses. This review will explore copy number variation at the Fc gamma receptor cluster and its relevance in the pathogenesis of common human diseases.
