The purpose of this work was to examine the influence of apolipoprotein gene variation on plasma lipid levels in a population of Mayan Indians of the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. Four restriction enzymes: XmnI, PstI, SstI, and PvuII, were used to detect restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP) within the region of the apolipoprotein AI/CIII/AIV gene cluster. The frequencies of these polymorphisms in this Mayan population were similar to those reported for other Amerindian populations, but… CONTINUE READING
