Apolipoprotein E polymorphism in Turkish subjects with Type 2 diabetes mellitus: Allele frequency and relation to serum lipid concentrations Authors:
Publisher and Date:(EDITRICE KURTIS S R L, 2004)The role of apolipoprotein E (apoE) genotypes in modulating plasma lipid and apolipoprotein levels was studied in 112 patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and 94 healthy individuals. ApoE genotypes were identified by PCR amplification and subsequent restriction endonuclease digestion. The apoE allele and genotype frequencies were similar in both the diabetic and control subjects. The apoE allele frequencies were found to be 74.3 for e3 10.1 for e2 15.6 for e4 in the diabetic group and ...
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005)Background: The results of studies that clarify the association of genetic markers at the apolipoprotein B (apo B) gene (EcoRI and XbaI polymorphisms) with coronary artery disease (CAD) are not consistent and suggest that the effect is context dependent (dependent on ethnicity and sex). The present study represents the first investigation of the apo B gene polymorphisms in Turkish patients with CAD and their influence on lipid levels. Aim: The study investigated the association of apo B gene EcoRI ...
