Recently a novel polymorphism in the 3'-untranslated region of the prothrombin gene (a G to A transition at position 20210) was discovered, and an association with venous thrombosis and cardiovascular disease was found. The prevalence of the polymorphic allele in different human populations is unknown. We investigated the prevalence of the A 20210 allele of the prothrombin gene in 420 unrelated individuals (840 chromosomes) who belong to four different ethnic groups: Whites, African and… CONTINUE READING
