A novel genetic variant in the apolipoprotein A5 gene is associated with hypertriglyceridemia.

Abstract

The apolipoprotein A5 gene (APOA5 ) has been shown to play an important role in determining plasma triglyceride concentrations in humans. We describe here a novel variant, c.553G>T, in the apolipoprotein A5 gene that is associated with hypertriglyceridemia. In contrast to some other polymorphisms, which occur in non-coding regions of the gene, this variant… (More)
