Abstract: Offspring of long-lived families are characterized by beneficial metabolic phenotypes in glucose and lipid metabolism and low 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Although the genetic basis for human longevity remains largely unclear, the contribution of variation at the APOE locus has been repeatedly demonstrated. We aimed to assess whether ApoE isoforms mark the familial longevity status in middle age and subsequently to test to what extend this association is mediated by the metabolic characteristics marking this status.

“…Interestingly, we found no evidence that familial longevity was mediated by APOE genotypes. This phenomenon has been observed in previous study, which suggests that variation at the APOE locus may not influence familial longevity status in middle age [30].…”
