Genotyping of Mitochondrial Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Locus of Native American Indians
Using the polymerase chain reaction to amplify genomic DNA from hair roots, we have examined the mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH2) genotypes of 28 individuals from the South American Mapuche Indians. We have ...
Morphology and incidence of torus palatinus and mandibularis in Brazilian Indians
The incidence and morphology of torus platinus and mandibularis was verified in 200 Indians, residents of two Brazilian Indian Reserves in Sao Paulo State, Brazil. A low incidence of both types of exostoses was observed, ...
