Abstract

Mannose binding lectin (MBL) is a key molecule in first line defense against various microorganisms. Polymorphism of the MBL gene greatly affects serum MBL concentration, and is known to be associated with occurrence of infectious diseases. We aimed to determine whether there is a relat...read more
