Mean triglyceride levels by APOC3 R19X genotype. A total of 184 European American adults (men > 45 years and women > 55 years) with at least one triglyceride level in the lowest 1% of BioVU were genotyped on the Illumina HumanExome BeadChip for APOC3 R19X. Two samples failed genotyping. The means for the first mentioned triglyceride level (y-axis) were calculated for the non-carriers (CC genotype) and carriers (CT genotype) at APOC3 R19X (x-axis). Although the mean triglyceride level in carriers (33 mg/dL; 2.83 standard deviation) was lower compared with the non-carriers (39.51 mg/dL; 18.52 standard deviation), the difference between the two is not statistically significant (two-sided t-test assuming unequal variances; p = 0.11)
