Abstract

In humans, Surfactant Protein A exists as two highly homologous genetic isoforms, SFTPA1 and SFTPA2. Mutations in these two genes are associated with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and lung cancer. We have developed a Sanger DNA sequencing assay which utilizes long-range PCR to detect mutations in these two genes.
