APOE Genotypic Analysis of Cadaver. a PCR amplification of APOE was observed in all the DNA samples for cerebellar tissue yielding a 218-bp fragment. DNA extracted from A549 cells was used as a positive control. b APOE gene PCR amplification (top) and restriction enzyme digestion (bottom) produced cleavage products consistent with the various polymorphisms revealing the individual genotype for each sample. Four APOE3/E3 genotypes (A549, 15/16M, 13/14F, 14/15M) and one APOE2/E3 (15/16F) were identified
