BACKGROUND: We investigated the frequency, prevalence and distribution of CYP2D6*41 polymorphism among different ethnicities of Iranian population.
METHODS: Genotyping was performed using PCR-RFLP method on genomic DNA of blood samples from 300 healthy individuals. Then, DNA sequencing technique was applied on some random samples to confirm the results.
RESULTS: Allele frequencies were 64% and 36% for CYP2D6*41[2988G] and CYP2D6*41[2988A]. The most frequency of CYP2D6*41[2988A] allele in ethnicities was owned by Lur ethnicity (42%) and in terms of geographical distribution, the highest prevalence was seen in the southern areas of the country.
CONCLUSIONS: According to this data, lower drug dose should be considered for people who show this polymorphism rather than normal individuals.


KEY WORDS: Pharmacokinetics - Polymorphism, genetic - Cytochrome P-450 enzyme system
