A promoter polymorphism -2122C>T of CHI3L1 is associated with serum low density lipoprotein cholesterol level in Korean subjects.


OBJECTIVES This study assessed the effects of 10 tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the CHI3L1 gene on serum LDL cholesterol levels in 290 Korean subjects. DESIGN AND METHODS Genotyping analyses of SNPs were conducted by TaqMan® method. The effects of the promoter SNP on mRNA expression and nuclear factor binding were measured by real-time… (More)
