Use of denaturing HPLC and automated sequencing to screen the VMD2 gene for mutations associated with Best's vitelliform macular dystrophy.
We identified three novel VMD2 mutations in patients with Best's macular dystrophy. DHPLC analysis of the 11 VMD2 exons revealed abnormal profiles in exon 8. Direct sequencing showed that these abnormal profiles were due to monoallelic transitions and transversions. We also found three polymorphic sequence changes that have been reported previously and annotated to an online database (http://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/humangenetics/vmd2.html).
