OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence on plasma lipid levels of alcohol and a common polymorphism in the human apolipoprotein AI gene promoter at a position 75 bp upstream of the transcription start site. METHODS For this study, 742 healthy Yi and Han subjects all above 15 years old formed the total population which was divided into three groups: the Yi-farmer group, the Yi-emigrant group and the Han-resident group. All estimates of plasma lipids and apolipoproteins were performed using an… CONTINUE READING
