Abstract

MARIN, Guilherme B. et al. Absence of the E2 allele of apolipoprotein in Amerindians. Braz. J. Genet. [online]. 1997, vol.20, n.4 ISSN 0100-8455.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-84551997000400029.

Determination of the ApoE allele distribution in five South American Amerindian tribes revealed absence of the ApoE2 allele, accompanied by high ApoE3 and low ApoE4 allele frequencies for most tribes, a distribution only previously reported for the Inuit Eskimo from Greenland.
