Mutations in the DLG5 gene are associated with an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in some European populations. Initial investigation of a British IBD population showed evidence of association of one of three DLG5 variants, R30Q, in a family-based collection but not in a case-control cohort. We have now examined the association of the R30Q polymorphism in a large cohort of British IBD cases, tested for interaction between the DLG5 and CARD15 genes and assessed possible association of DLG5 with clinical features of Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC).
