- BETA 1 ADRENERGIC RECEPTOR; MESTIZOS; TEENEK; MAYOS; MEXICAN POPULATIONS.
The 1 adrenergic receptor genotypes (Ser49Gly and Arg389- Gly) were determined in 190 individuals from 3 Mexican populations. Mestizos and Teenek present the highest frequencies for the *Arg allele and the lowest frequencies for the *Gly allele (Arg389Gly) compared to European, Asian, and African populations. Mayos present the highest frequency for the *Gly allele. The knowledge of the distribution of these alleles could help define the significance of these polymorphisms as genetic susceptibility markers in Amerindian populations.
