The distribution of apolipoprotein E (apo E) polymorphism was examined in 11 population groups not previously studied for this system. There is a marked difference in phenotype and gene frequency between the populations of England and Spain. The south European populations of Basques and Spanish non-Basques showed greater similarity to the populations of South Asia. The study clearly indicates that the distribution of apo E alleles does match with regions showing a high mortality rate of… CONTINUE READING
