Normal genetic variation at the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) locus influences cholesterol levels in children



Normal genetic variation at the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) locus influences cholesterol levels in children



Clinical Genetics 43(3): 122-126



The population of Czechoslovakia is at high risk of premature atherosclerosis. Normal DNA polymorphism at the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) locus detectable with the restriction enzyme PvuII was analyzed in Czech children with a high or a low concentration of total serum cholesterol. The PvuII restriction site was found significantly more often in the low cholesterol group than in the high cholesterol group.
