model, the carriers of genotype TT had a higher risk of CAD compared to those of genotype TC after adjustment for the above covariates (p = 0.019, Table 3).
The Hb-J gene follows the pattern of autosomal codominant inheritance
. The existence of Hb-J does not affect the longevity or survival of the foetus.
The RFLPs show Mendelian codominant inheritance
with minimal pleiotropic effects (Helentjaris et al., 1986); therefore, they can easily detect transfer of heterozygous loci in diploid and even polyploid plant species in comparison with dominant RAPD markers (Barone et al., 1995; Qu and Hancock, 1995).
