Table 5 Allele average effects αS, αM and αL estimated for S, M and L alleles respectively of the 3'VNTR-APOB polymorphism in the whole sample of healthy subjects after normalization for age, sex and BMI (computed according to the formula: BMI = weight [Kg]/ height [m2])

From: A study of the average effect of the 3'APOB-VNTR polymorphism on lipidemic parameters could explain why the short alleles (<35 repeats) are rare in centenarians
