BACKGROUND Gene variants contribute to variability in individual responsiveness to clopidogrel and influence cardiovascular outcomes in Caucasian patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, limited data is available in Asian populations. METHODS We resequenced 14 genes in metabolizing and activity pathway of clopidogrel in 138 patients with ACS(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified numerous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with coagulation system, including hemostatic factors and hematological phenotypes. However, few articles described the relationships between these SNPs and the risk of hemorrhagic stroke. The aim of our study was to evaluate the roles of(More)
X-linked ichthyosis (XLI) is an X-linked recessive skin disorder generally restricted to males, which arises from mutations in the steroid sulfatase (STS) gene located on Xp22.3. Crigler-Najjar syndrome (CN-I) is a rare autosomal recessive disease caused by the homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the UPD‑glucuronosyltransferase 1 family,(More)
Aortic dissection (AD) is a devastating, heterogeneous condition of aorta. The homeostasis between collagens and matrix metalloproteases (MMPs)/tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs) system in the extracellular matrix plays an important role for structure and functions of aorta. However, our knowledge on association between variants of genes in this system and(More)
BACKGROUND Rho-kinase (ROCK) has been shown to play an important role in cardiovascular disease such as coronary artery disease (CAD) and hypertension. Recently, common variants of ROCK2 have been reported to influence blood pressure, but the relationship between common ROCK2 variants and cardiovascular disease has not been extensively studied in the(More)
Mutations in FBN1 have been well identified in syndromic aortic dissection (AD) and familial thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections. However, whether mutations of FBN1 contribute to sporadic non-syndromic AD and the characteristics of mutations remain unknown. Using next-generation-sequencing technology, FBN1 was sequenced in a total of 702 sporadic(More)
The genotype-phenotype relationship in diseases with mtDNA point mutations is still elusive. The maintenance of wild-type mtDNA copy number is essential to the normal mitochondrial oxidative function. This study examined the relationship between mtDNA copy number in blood and urine and disease severity of the patients harboring A3243G mutation. We recruited(More)
m.3243A>G mutation in mitochondrial DNA is the most common pathogenic point mutation, causing a variety of phenotypes. To further elucidate its clinical characteristics, we recruited 47 Chinese families carrying m.3243A>G mutation and analyzed their symptoms, disease history, inheritance, and mitochondria-related complications. In the probands, lactic(More)
