HDL containing the PON1 R alloenzyme
has been shown to be less effective in protecting LDL from oxidation than the Q alloenzyme
Diversity In the invasive grass Taeniatherum caput-medusae (poaceae): Analysis of Mating System
The Gln[right arrow]Arg polymorphism leads to two alloenzymes
that clearly differ in paraoxonhydrolyzing ability: the Arg alloenzyme
has a relatively higher activity and shows a greater degree of stimulation by 1 mol/L NaCl than does the Gln alloenzyme
These regional tendencies have been supported by analysis of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA, and alloenzymes
(Taylor & Hellberg, 2003; Baums, Miller, & Hellberg, 2005).
