Abstract

Our study reports the genetic predominance of ACE I allele in Gorkhas and I allele predominance in Ladakhis for the first time, thus suggesting that they could be better endurance performers. Both these ethnic groups evolved from the Mongolian race and hence could have similar genotypic distribution. This study provides a comparative account of the Indian normative genetic data in performance-related genes.
