  1. The haplotype A and B were determined by using the following formula: group A = 2nAA + nAB/2N and group B = 2nBB + nAB/2N, where nAA, nAB, and nBB are the numbers of AA, AB, and BB genotypes, N = total number of population. The p values are given only for those pairwise comparisons indicating significant (P < 0.05) differences.
