Abstract

Polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) screening was used for searching mutations of the catalase gene in two Hungarian hypocatalasemic families. A syndrome-causing mutation was found in a PCR product containing exon 7 and its boundaries. Nucleotide sequence analyses detected a G to T substitution at position 5 of intron 7. The effect of this splice site mutation was confirmed by Western blot analyses demonstrating a decreased catalase protein level in these patients. These findings represent a novel type (C) of catalase mutations in the Hungarian acatalasemic/hypocatalasemic patients.
