Özet

Objective: Pemphigus, expressing a life-threatening blistering disease, result from autoantibodies against the proteins that mediate intercellular adhesion in desmosomes, namely desmoglein 1 and/or 3. The importance of cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen (CTLA)-4 in negative regulation of T lymphocytes, which take part in this autoimmune reaction, is well known. Gene polymorphisms regarding this molecule affect autoimmunity. We aimed to determine whether CTLA-4 +49 A/G, -318 C/T, -1661 A/G and CT60 A/G gene polymorphisms cause susceptibility to pemphigus in Turkish population.
