The resulting exposure of blood to the atherosclerotic material then triggers thrombus formation, which occludes the artery. The importance of genetic predisposition to coronary artery(More)
Myocardial infarction (MI) is the main complication of coronary artery disease (CAD). Recently, a locus tagging the GUCY1A3 gene has been shown to be genome-wide significantly associated with CAD [1]. GUCY1A3 encodes for the a 1-subunit of the soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) which consists of a 1-and b 1-subunits and catalyzes the production of cGMP upon(More)
