Previously, several researchers have performed extensive genetic studies on large consanguineous Pakistani families and reported mutations in TYR, TYRP1, OCA2 and SLC45A2 genes.5-7 The TYR gene analyses in these studies have observed that p.Gly419Arg mutation has the most common incidence among Pakistani population.8-10 Recently, Shah and his colleagues have reported a founder mutation (p.Arg77Gln) in the TYR gene.7 The clinical data reported in these articles are almost consistent with our findings.
Prevalence rate of different genetic forms of OCA among the various world populations has determined OCA1 as the most widespread type of loci mapped among the Caucasian patients followed by OCA2 OCA4 and OCA3 respectively3.
There are four major forms: (i) OCA1 (mutated tyrosinase (TYR) gene); [12] (ii) OCA2 (mutated OCA2 gene); [13] (iii) OCA3 (mutated tyrosinase-related protein 1 (TYRP1) gene); [14] and (iv) OCA4 (mutated solute carrier family 45, member 2 (SLC45A2) gene).
