Abstract

The relative frequencies of the *A allele of the APOA1 gene at -75 bp (M1-) and the C or T +83/+84 bp allele (M2-) varied significantly between populations. We found the frequencies of M1- and M2- to be 0.22 and 0.067, respectively, in 150 healthy Omanis. These frequencies were compared to frequencies found in other world populations.
