In conclusion, we propose that the deletion mutation of exons 9-12 of the LDL-receptor gene is the most frequent deletion type in Korean FH patients and that the fragment 2 region may be used as the primary screening target to detect for large rearrangements of the LDL-receptor gene in Korean FH patients because all large deletions have been detected in fragment 2.
