Exclusion of linkage between the human apolipoprotein B gene and abetalipoproteinemia.


Abetalipoproteinemia (ABLP) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by a lack of plasma apolipoprotein B (apo B). In this report, the hypothesis that ABLP is due to rare mutations in the apo B gene was tested. A total of eight ABLP families were studied. Apo B gene RFLPs were used to establish the haplotypes of the apo B alleles in family… (More)
