First, a DNA fragment spanning 1212 bp, which contained the whole coding region of the NAT2 gene, was amplified from genomic DNA from study samples by use of primers specifically designed to amplify the NAT2 gene, avoiding amplification of the highly homologous genes N-acetyltransferase 1 (arylamine N-acetyltransferase) (NATI) and arylamide acetylase pseudogene (AACP; also known as NATP) (7).
