Von Willebrand factor gene polymorphisms were studied in three Brazilian ethnic groups: Euro-Brazilians, Afro-Brazilians, and Amerindians. Six polymorphic sites were analyzed: RsaI (exon 18), NlaIV (exon 20), HphI, KpnI, D1472H, and V1565L (all four in exon 28). The allele frequencies were significantly different between Euro- and Afro-Brazilians for RsaI, HphI, D1472H, and V1565L, while in Amerindians NlaIV and HphI showed significant differences among tribes. This is the first report of these… CONTINUE READING
