The influence of apolipoprotein E alleles and genotypes on plasma lipid levels was determined in 185 individuals of mixed ethnicity living in Ouro Preto, Brazil. DNA was obtained from blood samples and the genotypes were determined by an RFLP-PCR procedure. The *3 allele was the most frequent (72%), followed by *4 (20%) and *2 (8%); *4 frequency was higher(More)
A genomic region neighboring the alpha-synuclein gene, on rat chromosome 4, has been associated with anxiety- and alcohol-related behaviors in different rat strains. In this study, we have investigated potential molecular and physiological links between alpha-synuclein and the behavioral differences observed between Lewis (LEW) and Spontaneously(More)
Expression of a-synuclein is increased in the hippocampus of rats with high levels of innate anxiety A genomic region neighboring the a-synuclein gene, on rat chromosome 4, has been associated with anxiety-and alcohol-related behaviors in different rat strains. In this study, we have investigated potential molecular and physiological links between(More)
