  1. Each polymorphic RC-L1 was genotyped using PCR and then expanded into the larger cohort of the UK Project MinE samples using tagging SNPs as a proxy for the L1 genotype and each method demonstrated a similar insertion allele frequency (IAF). The RC-L1s were in strong LD with their respective tagging SNPs demonstrated by the r2 values. There was no significant association of any of the RC-L1s with SALS by either genotyping method (chi-squared test). Number in brackets in columns IAF of L1 based on PCR and IAF of L1 based on SNP indicate the number of individuals per cohort
