Abstract

Objective. Using a genome-wide association scan and DNA pooling, we previously identified 5 novel genetic susceptibility loci for Behc,et's disease. We undertook this study to establish the genetic effect within the UBAC2 gene, in the course of which we replicated this genetic association and identified a functional variant within this locus.
