Table 4 The comparison of genotypes with one 21-repeat allele in male elderly and male control groups

From: A microsatellite polymorphism in IGF1 gene promoter and longevity in a Han Chinese population

Genotype Male
  Elderly(%1) Control(%1) P value2
173/21 14(5.56) 11(5.45) 0.716
18/21 28(11.11) 11(5.45) 0.0114
19/21 42(16.67) 34(16.83) 0.591
20/21 14(5.56) 7(3.47) 0.182
21/22 7(2.78) 2(0.99) 0.18
21/23 1(0.40) 0  
  1. 1. The percentage was obtained from dividing the amounts of people in each category by the total number of people of the respective group including all genotypes.
  2. 2. P values were obtained by the chi-square test of genotype distribution categorized by each genotype in respective group.
  3. 3. The number represents how many repeats there is in the microsatellite locus in this genotype.
  4. 4. The new cutoff p-value is 0.0083.
