  1. Research progress in the genetics of hyperuricaemia and gout.

    Hereditas (Beijing) 38(4):300 (2016) PMID 27103454

    Gout is one of the most common inflammatory arthritis caused by hyperuricaemia, which is affected by both genetic factors and environmental factors. Early researches show that a few of rare monogenic mutations, such as PRPS1 and HPRT1 mutations, lead to abnormal purine anabolism and then cause h...
