Abstract

The identification of a novel CYP2D6 allele from a healthy Caucasian poor metabolizer was achieved by using a previously described polymerase chain reaction/single-strand conformation polymorphism strategy. Among the four point mutations that this allele carries, a missense mutation in exon 1 (212 G-->A or D6-H) seems to be responsible for the loss of CYP2D6 function. Although the mutation D6-H has a low prevalence in a randomly selected population of healthy Caucasians, its identification should further increase the phenotype prediction rate by genotyping.
