The literature for genetic mutations spans several decades now and over that time different names have been used to identify the same gene. Strategene uses the standardized name as identified by genecards.org. We have chosen however to use the most popular (and older name) for the Diamine Oxidase: DAO gene rather than its official name AOC1 (Amine Oxidase Copper Containing 1) as most people still know the gene as DAO. In fact, the DAO acronym is currently reserved for the enzyme D-Amino-Acid Oxidase. Use caution when reading the research to make certain you are clear on which gene is being discussed, as DAO and AOC1 are two completely different genes on different chromosomes coding for different enzymes.
