Probable Role of Beta 2-Adrenergic Receptor Gene Haplotype in Toluene Diisocyanate-Induced Asthma

Ye YM, Kang YM, Kim SH, Lee HY, Kim CW, Park CS, Hong CS, Park HS

  • Allergy Asthma Immunol Res.
  • 2010 Oct;2(4):260-266.
  • doi: 10.4168/aair.2010.2.4.260
PURPOSE: A genetic polymorphism of the beta 2-adrenergic receptor is a major factor associated with the asthmatic phenotype. The association of this polymorphism with toluene diisocyanate (TDI)-induced asthma has not...
