In addition, there is possible linkage dysequilibrium with other variants, for example, UCP3, that reside on the same chromosome as UCP2.
Interestingly, we did not find a role for the eNOS 4a4b polymorphism in influencing Hcy concentrations, although it is in close linkage dysequilibrium with the -786T>C polymorphism and may have a cis-acting effect on eNOS gene transcription (27).
Apart from the 56C>G SNP, the other SNPs are in strong linkage dysequilibrium, producing 3 haplotypes (11111, 22122, and 11211) representing ~98% of the population in Caucasians (5, 9); therefore, 2 independent APOA5 SNPs (56C>G and -1131T>C) can be analyzed in association studies as indicators of the corresponding haplotypes.

There is no ready explanation for the discrepancy between our results and those reported by other authors, although it is possible that the putative effects of haptoglobin type are actually attributable to linkage dysequilibrium with other genes or to population stratification with respect to ethnic origin.
