抜粋

Nramp1 (natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 1), encoding a polytropic integral membrane protein, was isolated as a candidate of the mouse Lsh/Ity/Bcg locus, which regulates macrophage activation for antimicrobial activity against intracellular pathogens. The NRAMP2 gene was cloned from human genome as a homologue of NRAMP1. We found a polymorphic dinucleotide repeat in the third intron of the NRAMP2 gene. This polymorphism will be a useful genetic marker to study disease associated with susceptibility to infection with intracellular pathogens.
