Abstract

We read with great interest the recent report in Clinical Chemistry by Cantürk et al. (1). These authors affirmed that the CYP21A1P1 (cytochrome P450, family 21, subfamily A, polypeptide 1 pseudogene) genotype interferes with quantitative multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) analysis of the CYP21A2 (cytochrome P450, family 21, subfamily A, polypeptide 2) gene. They also reported that the p.I172N and p.Q318X mutations were absent in 3.6% and 8.5%, respectively, of the CYP21A1P alleles (200 unrelated individuals examined)
