Gm, Km and ISf Allotypes in the Lebanese Population
The results of a population genetic investigation on Lebanese are given and compared with the results obtained on other populations from near and MiddleEast. 2005 unrelated male and femaleExpand

Common and uncommon immunoglobulin haplotypes among Lebanese communities
SummaryAllotypes of IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgA2 subclasses were investigated in seven Lebanese communities (three Moslem and four Christian). The Gm-Am haplotypes found were mainly those prevalent inExpand

Genetic diseases in Lebanon.
Lebanon has a high incidence of common and rare genetic diseases, due probably to the mosaic different ethnic origins and the high rate of consanguineous marriages in certain communities. Two majorExpand

Sex limited ahaptoglobinaemia
SummaryHypohaptoglobinaemia and ahaptoglobinaemia occurred in three generations, mainly to male members of a family. Also small amounts of haptolobin were detected in most of the female relatives.Expand

Evidence for "deleted" or "silent" genes homozygous at the locus coding for the constant region of the gamma3 chain.
Three uncommon stable Gm haplotypes, Gm3;23;--, Gm1,2,17;..;-- and Gm1,17;..;-- have been transmitted through 3 generations of two related Lebanese and Syrian families. No pathological consequenceExpand

Recombination, mutation, or constitutive expression at a Gm locus and familial hypergammaglobulinemia.
In a hypercholesterolemic Lebanese family, an uncommon Gm haplotype carrying an unexpected C gamma 1 gene was inherited by only one of 10 siblings. A new recombination during the maternal or paternalExpand

Amino acid composition of “ethionine-induced” cystathionase of rat liver
Abstract The amino acid composition of cystathionase purified from the livers of ethionine-fed rats was determined; the initial motivation for this study was to establish whether the increasedExpand

FAMILIAL LACK OF THE IgG3 SUBCLASS: GENE ELIMINATION OR TURNING OFF EXPRESSION AND NEUTRAL EVOLUTION IN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Gene expansion or repetitions of sequences in D.N.A., originated by repetitive tandem duplications of ancestral gene segments, seems to be a general mechanism accounting for evolution of all livingExpand

HLA markers in six Lebanese religious subpopulations.
A total of 315 normal, unrelated individuals from six of the seven principal religious communities of Lebanon have been typed for 26 alleles of the A and B loci. The gene, haplotype frequencies andExpand
