[…] A common missense rs5918 (PlA1/A2) polymorphism in the ITGB3 gene was selected ( The four primers used in this research were designed by the online website Primer1: The specificity of the primers was checked by the ‘BLAST’ program at (). To enhance the specificity of inner primers, at the 3rd nucleotide from the 3’-terminus changes to destabilizing mismatch.SWISS-MODEL ( was used for protein modeling of mutant protein. SWISS-MODEL is a fully automated protein structure homology-modeling server. The PyMol software was used for visualizing the effect of the altered residue on the protein structure. […]
