  • CETP cholesteryl ester transfer protein, plasma ( 1071 / ENSG00000087237 )

  • Description:

    We report here the lack of association of the valine (V) allele in the long-lived subjects. In fact a slight although not significant reduction in the V allele frequencies was observed in centenarians.

    Trivial name is I405V.

    Ethnicity: Italian
    Age of cases: 99.6
