Association Between the Apolipoprotein E Gene Polymorphism and Atherosclerotic Middle Cerebral Artery Stenosis
Objectives: Stenosis of the intracranial large arteries, especially the middle cerebral artery (MCA), is common in the Chinese population. We conducted a case-control study to investigate clinical
ACE and ADD1 gene in extra and intracranial atherosclerosis in ischaemic stroke
TLDR
In IS patients, DD genotype and D allele of ACE gene and W allele of ADD1 gene were significantly related to MRA abnormality compared to controls but there was no association of ACE andADD1 gene polymorphism in IS patients with MRA and without abnormality.
Association of ADIPOQ single nucleotide polymorphisms with the risk of intracranial atherosclerosis
TLDR
The SNPs of the ADIPOQ gene are closely related to increased risk of ICAS in Chinese Han population after adjusting for conventional cardiovascular risk factors.
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene A1298C polymorphism and gene-environment interactions are associated with carotid plaque in a south Chinese population.
TLDR
MTHFR gene C677T and A1298C polymorphisms may act as modifiers of carotid plaque risk in south Chinese population and the combined effect of gene-environment interactions between A12 98C polymorphism and conventional risk factors may promote the progression of carOTid plaque.
Genetic Risk Factors of Intracranial Atherosclerosis
TLDR
This review summarizes the candidate gene and genome-wide studies aimed at discovering genetic risk factors of Intracranial atherosclerosis and point out future developments of this field.
Genetic polymorphisms of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T and risk of ischemic stroke in a southern Chinese Hakka population
TLDR
Evidence is provided that variants of MTHFR C677T gene may influence the risk of developing ischemic stroke in a southern Chinese Hakka population, and further studies are needed to confirm this association.
Apolipoprotein E gene polymorphisms as risk factors for carotid atherosclerosis.
TLDR
Protective effect of apolipoprotein E epsilon2 allele on susceptibility for carotid plaque presence as well as low density lipoprotein cholesterol lowering effect in Serbian patients withcarotid atherosclerosis is suggested.
Association of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene variant C677T with serum homocysteine levels and the severity of ischaemic stroke: a case–control study in the southwest of China
TLDR
The MTHFR C677T gene polymorphism and hyperhomocysteinaemia may play important roles in predicting the risk of ischaemic stroke and circulating homocysteine levels in a Chinese population.
Apolipoprotein E gene polymorphisms as risk factors for carotid atherosclerosis Polimorfizmi u genu za apolipoprotein E kao faktori rizika od ateroskleroze karotidnih arterija
TLDR
Protective effect of apolipoprotein E �• 2 allele on susceptibility for ca- rotid plaque presence as well as low density lipoprotein cholesterol lowering effect in Serbian patients with carotid atherosclerosis is suggested.
Location of cerebral atherosclerosis: Why is there a difference between East and West?
TLDR
To understand racial differences, further well-designed studies on various risk and genetic factors should be performed in patients with cerebral atherosclerosis and improvements in diagnostic accuracy via advancements in imaging technologies and increased genetic data will aid in the differentiation of Atherosclerosis from non-atherosclerotic intracranial diseases.

New Insight Into the Association of Apolipoprotein E Genetic Variants With Carotid Plaques and Intima-Media Thickness
TLDR
It is demonstrated that carotid plaques were significantly associated with the apoE ϵ polymorphism independently of the -219 polymorphism and vascular risk factors, in particular lipid levels.
An association of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene polymorphism and common carotid atherosclerosis
TLDR
The findings of the present study confirm an association between MTHFR gene polymorphism and common carotid atherosclerosis in the Japanese population and further support the role of risk factor-gene interaction in commonCarotid Atherosclerosis.
Association between angiotensin converting enzyme gene polymorphism and carotid atherosclerosis
TLDR
Variations at the ACE gene locus contribute to the degree of the early changes in carotid atherosclerosis in the population, however, the gene effect is masked by stronger effects of environmental factors such as smoking.
The A677V methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene polymorphism and carotid atherosclerosis.
TLDR
The results indicate that the MTHFR A677V allele is significantly associated with severe CAS, and is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Apolipoprotein E and Carotid Artery Atherosclerosis: The Rotterdam Study
TLDR
The results suggest that APOE*4 is not an important risk factor for carotid artery atherosclerosis, and the inverse relationship of E2E3 with carotids arteries seems to be independent of serum apoE and total and HDL cholesterol levels.
Apolipoprotein E Gene Polymorphisms Are Associated With Carotid Plaque Formation but Not With Intima-Media Wall Thickening: Results From the Perth Carotid Ultrasound Disease Assessment Study (CUDAS)
TLDR
It is suggested that polymorphisms in the apoE gene are significantly associated with LDL-C levels and increased risk of carotid plaque formation in men but not IMT in either men or women.
Association of APOE genotype with carotid atherosclerosis in men and women: the Framingham Heart Study.
TLDR
The E2 allele was associated with lower carotid atherosclerosis in women, and the E4 allele wasassociated with higher internal carotids IMT in diabetic men.
Apolipoprotein E polymorphism is associated with both carotid and coronary atherosclerosis in patients with coronary artery disease.
Association Between Apolipoprotein E Genotype and Carotid Intima-Media Thickness May Suggest a Specific Effect on Large Artery Atherothrombotic Stroke
TLDR
The results show a clear association of APOE with CIMT, even though publication bias means that this is overestimated by the published literature, and suggest the possibility of a specific association with large artery ischemic stroke.
