ApoE typing by PCR

We routinely use the primers and methods of Hixson and Vernier (J lipid
Res, 31: 545-548, 1990) for apoE genotyping (E2, E3, and E4) without too
many problems. Its based on restriction isotyping using amplification and
Hha I digestion. Email me if you need more info.
Cheers, Gene
