Studies in mice suggest that the elastin microfibril interfacer-1 gene (EMILIN1), the gene encoding elastin microfibril interfacer-1 protein, contributes to the pathogenesis of essential hypertension (EH) in humans. EMILIN1 in part maintains elastic fibres in vessel walls, and hence peripheral arterial compliance. In a case–control study, we assessed 942(More)
PURPOSE To describe prevalence and risk factors for retinopathy in an Asian Indian population without diabetes. METHODS A population-based cross-sectional study of 3400 Indians aged 40-80 years residing in Singapore was conducted. Retinopathy was assessed from retinal photographs by trained graders using modified Airlie House Classification System. Risk(More)
Genetic variation in several genes involved in lipid metabolism is known to affect population variation in quantitative lipid risk factor profiles for coronary heart disease (CHD). The apolipoprotein A-IV gene (APOA4) is one such candidate gene. We genotyped five polymorphisms in the APOA4 gene (codon 127, codon 130, codon347, codon 360 and 3' VNTR) and(More)
