Major gene for percent of oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin in Tibetan highlanders.

Abstract

This report employs a statistical genetic approach to analyze quantitative oxygen transport variables in a high-altitude (4,850-5,450 m) native Tibetan population and demonstrates the presence of a major gene influencing % O2 saturation of arterial hemoglobin. This result suggests the hypothesis that individuals with the dominant allele for higher % O2… (More)
