    The prostanoid DP receptor (PTGDR) is shown to be involved in the asthma patho-physiology and the results from the published genetic association studies are inconsistent. Four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in PTGDR were genotyped in 342 and 294 families from UK and Denmark respectively....
