The effects of ABO blood groups and black admixture on the level of factor VIII:C are studied in healthy adults from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. A racially mixed sample of 125 males was selected as follows: 25 whites, 25 light mulattoes, 25 medium mulattoes, 25 dark mulattoes, and 25 blacks. Levels of both factor VIII:C and K-PTT followed normal distributions.(More)
Data from surnames and racial subgroups were obtained in 60 localities to reconstruct the history of population spread and mixing over the state of Bahia, Brazil. Using the historically significant location of Cachoeira and Sao Felix as central points, the sampled localities were distributed along 7 main paved roads. 20% of the elementary school children(More)
PGM3 polymorphism was studied in 301 placenta samples from the Negroid population of Northeastern Brazil. The following gene frequencies were encountered: PGM3*1 = 0.545 and PGM3*2 = 0.455. They lie between European and African gene frequencies. The prevalent Black and White admixture of Northeastern Brazil populations fits well with the observed gene(More)
The ongoing racial admixture was studied in the island of Itaparica off the coast of the State of Bahia, in Brazil. The following gene frequencies were observed: Hb S = 0.039; Hb C = 0.022; PGD C = 0.024; Gd A = 0.217 and Gd A = 0.052, among 293 mixed school children whose black phenotype index (medium mulatto + dark mulatto + black/total) was 0.457.

The Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a biological signal that represents the electrical activity of the brain. However, the presence of artifacts like electro-oculogram (EOG), Electrocardiogram (ECG), electromyogram (EMG) and power-line noise in the EEG signal is a major problem in the study of brain potentials. Hence, these superfluous signals are needed to(More)
Human aconitase (ACONS) polymorphism was studied in three samples from northeastern Brazil. Two of the samples were collected in the State of Bahia and one in the State of Sergipe. The main characteristic of the samples was given by different degrees of Black admixture. The results showed that the more negroid the samples the higher the frequencies of the(More)
