Abstract

A4070G (His 1299 Arg) polymorphism in exon 13 of factor V gene can influence factor V levels and contribute to the activated protein C resistance. We are presenting our data concerning Turkish population and postulate that homozygosity for the HR2 haplotype may be an important risk factor for thrombosis.
