Gene UGT1A1
Chromosomal Location 2q37
Allelic Variant 2 191740.0011; GILBERT SYNDROME
Identified Mutation 7 TA Repeats; Beutler et al (Proc Nat Acad Sci 95:8170-8174, 1998) described the variant in the promoter of the UGT1A1 gene that is responsible for most cases of Gilbert syndrome as the presence of 7 instead of 6 thymine-adenine (TA) repeats in the promoter region of the gene. This variant has been designated UGT1A1*28 (Mackenzie et al., Pharmacogenetics 7:255-269,1997).
Genbank Hypervariable region I
Remark The number of TA repeats in the UGT1A1 gene are 6 and 7
