The -1131C is a naturally occurring variant of the apolipoprotein A5 (ApoA5) gene, which has been shown to associate with increased triglyceride levels. This variant has also been shown to confer risk for development of ischemic heart disease and stroke. The gene is in linkage disequilibrium with factors known to correlate with impaired glucose homeostasis.(More)
Both the natural variants of the apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) and the glucokinase regulatory protein gene (GCKR) have been shown to associate with increased fasting triglyceride levels. Here, we investigated the possible association of the functional variants of these two genes with non-fasting triglyceride levels and their susceptibility nature in ischemic(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies revealed that glucokinase regulatory protein (GCKR) variants (rs780094 and rs1260326) are associated with serum triglycerides and plasma glucose levels. Here we analyzed primarily the association of these two variants with the lipid profile and plasma glucose levels in Hungarian subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Recent genome-wide studies identified several genetic variants associated with blood lipid level alterations. Because affected lipid metabolism can confer risk to the development of ischaemic stroke, we studied three polymorphisms reportedly associated with triglyceride-level changes, rs17145738 and rs3812316 of the MLXIPL locus, and rs4846914(More)
Stroke is a common multifactorial disease, and the third leading cause of death worldwide, which results in serious long-term mental and physical disability among survivors. The role of affected triglyceride metabolism in the development of ischemic stroke is under extensive investigations. Here, we examined three SNPs, rs12130333 located within the ANGPTL3(More)
AIM To investigate the association of seven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the IL23R gene with the clinical picture of ulcerative colitis (UC). METHODS Genomic DNA samples of 131 patients (66 males, 65 females, mean age 55.4 ± 15.8 years) with Caucasian origin, diagnosed with UC were investigated. The diagnosis of UC was based on the(More)
