BACKGROUND Our previous studies have showed that the rs5888 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in Scavenger receptor class B type 1 (SCARB1) gene is associated with serum lipid levels in the general Chinese populations. The present study was undertaken to detect the associations between rs5888 SNP and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocyte nuclear factor-1α gene (HNF1A) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been associated with serum lipid traits in several previous genome-wide association studies. However, little is known about such associations in the Chinese populations. The present study aimed to determine the association of the HNF1A rs1169288, rs2259820,(More)
Little is known about the association of the FADS1/FADS2 SNPs and serum lipid levels and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic stroke (IS) in the Chinese southern population. The present study aimed to determine such association in the Chinese southern population. A total of 1,669 unrelated subjects (CAD, 534; IS, 553; and healthy controls,(More)
The present study was to determine the association of two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the glucokinase regulator gene (GCKR) and serum lipid levels, and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic stroke (IS). Genotypes of the GCKR rs1260326 and rs8179206 in 1736 unrelated subjects (CAD, 584; IS, 555; and healthy controls; 597) were(More)
The association between the dedicator of cytokinesis 7 (DOCK7) rs10889353 and rs10889335 polymorphisms and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic stroke (IS) has not been reported previously. The present study was undertaken to examine the association between the DOCK7 rs10889353 and rs10889335 polymorphisms and their haplotypes and the risk(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified genetic variants associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), ischemic stroke (IS) and serum lipid traits in different ethnic groups. Some loci were found to affect the risk of CAD and IS. However, there were no data in the southern Chinese populations. Our study was to assess the association(More)
The v-maf avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog B gene (MAFB) has been associated with serum lipid levels in the Eurpean population, but little is known about such association in the Chinese population or in atherosclerosis-related patients. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to assess the association of the single nucleotide(More)
The single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) related to both coronary heart disease (CHD) and ischemic stroke (IS) in Chinese individuals have not been identified definitely. This study was developed to evaluate the genetic susceptibility to CHD and IS on the chromosome 9p21 and the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-binding cassette transporter A1 genes (ABCA1) in(More)
This study aimed to detect the association of the MADD-FOLH1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and their haplotypes with the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and ischemic stroke (IS) in a Chinese Han population. Six SNPs of rs7395662, rs326214, rs326217, rs1051006, rs3736101, and rs7120118 were genotyped in 584 CHD and 555 IS patients, and 596(More)
The present study was to detect the association of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the breast susceptibility gene 2 (BRCA2) and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic stroke (IS). Genotypes of the BRCA2 rs9534275 in 1822 unrelated subjects (CAD, 606; IS, 569; and healthy controls, 647) were determined by the polymerase chain reaction(More)
