The muscle Ras (MRAS) gene resides on chromosome 3q22.3 and encodes a member of the membrane-associated Ras small GTPase proteins, which function as signal transducers in multiple processes including cell growth and differentiation. Its role in cardiovascular disease is not fully understood yet. In a preliminary study in heterozygous familial(More)
The study was designed to evaluate the association of GATA4 gene polymorphism with coronary artery disease (CAD) and its metabolic risk factors, including dyslipidaemic disorders, obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension, following a preliminary study linking early onset of CAD in heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia to chromosome 8, which harbours(More)
The data shows results acquired in a large cohort of 5668 ethnic Arabs involved in a common variants association study for coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial infarction (MI) using the Affymetrix Axiom Genotyping platform ("A genome-wide association study reveals susceptibility loci for myocardial infarction/coronary artery disease in Saudi Arabs"(More)
