Özet

Objectives. To examine the prevalence of four mutations, T59G, T1067A, T202C and C314T, of the human alpha(1,3/1,4) fucosyltransferase 3 (FUT 3) gene amongst persons with Lewis negative and those with Lewis positive blood group phenotype. An additional objective was to explore the hypothesis that these mutations are associated with coronary heart disease and inflammatory reaction.
