BACKGROUND The allelic variation of the apolipoprotein E (apoE) gene affects serum lipid concentrations. This study investigates the correlation of apoE polymorphisms and serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations in Chinese subjects. METHODS DNA from a random sample of 136 unrelated individuals was used for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of the three apoE alleles. The amplified products were analyzed by Hha1 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and single… CONTINUE READING
