Predicted Old World LP phenotype frequencies based on LP-associated allele frequencies. LP frequency prediction assumes Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and dominance. Crosses represent collection locations where all 4 currently known LP-associated alleles were genotyped, and diamonds represent collection locations where the only data on the -13,910 C>T allele is available. Colour key shows the predicted LP phenotype frequencies estimated by surface interpolation.
