From: A genetic variant in the LDLRpromoter is responsible for part of the LDL-cholesterol variability in primary hypercholesterolemia

  Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 p
LDL-C 86 (77.5-95.0) 112 (107-116) 127 (124-131) 143 (139-147) 163 (155-168)  
(mg/dl)
CT+TT genotype 0.324 0.371 0.352 0.267 0.200 0.046
T-allele frequency 0.176 0.195 0.195 0.143 0.109  
  1. LDL-C, LDL cholesterol measured by median and interquartiles. p: p-value was calculated by Chi-square test and corrected by Bonferroni.
