Small sequence variations in genes were detected by amplification of fragments containing individual exons and their splice intron-exon junctions and sequencing in an ABI3730 system (Applied Biosystems).
Genomic DNA from the proband and her parents was extracted from whole blood, obtained after informed consent, and the 14 coding exons of the human serum albumin gene and their intron-exon junctions (4) were PCR-amplified (8) with specific primer pairs (Table 1).
The 14 coding exons of the human serum albumin (HSA) gene and their intron-exon junctions (7) were PCR-amplified from genomic DNA using specific primer pairs (2).
Fourteen genomic fragments of the HSA gene encompassing the 14 albumin-coding exons and their intron-exon junctions from the proband and her heterozygous mother were PCR-amplified and subjected to heteroduplex and SSCP analysis together with two controls.
