The C3 protein polymorphism was studied in 300 unrelated Lebanese. The gene frequencies were calculated and compared with other populations. DNA samples digested with various endonucleases were hybridized with a C3 probe, which was found to detect a frequent Sac I restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and a less frequent Taq I RFLP in the Lebanese population, as well as in the French populations.
