Population data were generated for the loci LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, Gc, HLA-DQA1, and D1S80 from 180 Arabs from Dubai. Except for D7S8 (P = 0.003), the genotype frequency distributions for the loci do not deviate from Hardy Weinberg expectations. There was no evidence for departures from expectations of independence between the loci. Using a test for homogeneity, the loci LDLR, GYPA, D7S8, and Gc were similar between the Dubaian Arab population sample and an Arab population sample from Palestine and the occupied territories, while the loci HBGG(P = 0.003), DQA1 (P < 10-3), and D1S80 (P = 0.020) were statistically different.
