Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract IGF2 gene has an important role in fetal growth. It was investigated association of the IGF2/ApaI polymorphism with low birth weight and normal birth weight (as control) in children attended in Hospital Dom Malan Petrolina, PE-Brazil. The genotype frequencies did not differ statistically between low birth weight (AA = 16.22%, AG = 43.24%, GG = 40.54%) and control (AA = 20% AG = 35%, GG= 45% groups) and the allele frequencies were not significantly different (p>0.05).The observed genotype frequencies in both groups did not deviate significantly from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Then, no significant correlation was found for this polymorphism in the population studied.
