We examined three missense polymorphisms of platelet-endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (PECAM-1), Val125Leu, Asn563Ser, and Gly670Arg, in 136 Japanese patients with myocardial infarction and 235 healthy Japanese controls. We found that these polymorphisms were in linkage disequilibrium with each other and that frequencies of 125Leu, 563Ser, and 670Arg(More)
To investigate the recently reported associations of polymorphisms in lymphotoxin-alpha (LTA) and galectin-2 (LGALS2) with myocardial infarction (MI), we analyzed a single nucleotide polymorphism of LTA (LTA 252A>G in LTA intron 1) and that of LGALS2 (LGALS2 3279C>T in LGALS2 intron 1) in Japanese and Korean populations. Although significant associations(More)
