Association of Matrix Metalloproteinase Gene Polymorphisms with Refractive Error in Amish and Ashkenazi Families

By Robert Wojciechowski, Joan E. Bailey-Wilson and Dwight Stambolian


The role of polymorphisms in matrix metalloproteinase genes with variations in refractive error among Orthodox Ashkenazi Jewish and Old Order Amish families was investigated. The results showed statistically significant genetic associations of refraction with two markers in MMP regions in the Amish population, but not among the Ashkenazim
