Özet

Background. The development of glomerular inflammation in immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) has been associated with various cytokines, including tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha). A biallelic polymorphism in the promoter region of the TNFalpha gene (TNFA), at position -308, has been described (TNFA-1 and TNFA-2) and is associated with increased TNFalpha production for the TNFA-2 allele. Another microsatellite polymorphism has been described for TNFd, which is functional and associated with increased production of TNFalpha for the d3 allele.
