No evidence for linkage of a novel CA repeat polymorphism for apoptosis antigen 1 (APO-1 or fas) with type I diabetes in a Caucasian population
A novel microsatellite marker was found within 48.5 kb of the Fas gene. The observed heterozygosity in 160 healthy unrelated controls was 0.78. There was no evidence of linkage to type I diabetes mellitus in 120 diabetic children using the transmission disequilibrium test.
