Approximate linkage equilibrium between two polymorphic sites within the gene for human complement component 3



Haplotypes have been determined for alleles at two separate polymorphic sites within the human structural gene for complement component 3, identified as a protein polymorphism and as a restriction fragment length polymorphism by hybridization using a cloned gene probe. No evidence was found for appreciable disequilibrium between alleles at these sites, despite their very close linkage.
