Influence of the APOC3-2854T > G polymorphism on plasma lipid levels: effect of age and gender.
BBA-MOL CELL BIOL L
311 - 314.
The APOC3 - 2854T>G polymorphism lies in the APOO-A4 intergenic region. In a group of healthy adults, this polymorphism was associated with circulating triglycerides, with 55% lower fasting levels in the homozygous wild-type (TT) compared to the homozygous rare allele (GG) genotype. Age and gender had a significant impact on genotype - triglyceride interactions. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V All rights reserved.
