Abstract

In this study, LOXL1 promoter haplotypes were identified that are significantly associated with exfoliation syndrome in a U.S. Caucasian population. These results suggest that promoter region SNPs can influence LOXL1 gene expression, potentially causing a reduction of enzyme activity that may predispose to disease
