OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of the polymorphisms of the KCNE1 gene with atrial fibrillation (AF) in a Chinese Han population. METHODS Three hundred seven AF patients and 330 age- and sex-matched controls were genotyped using the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method for two single-nucleotide polymorphisms (rs1805127 and rs1892593) of the human KCNE1 gene. RESULTS The frequencies of the AA, AG, and GG genotypes of… CONTINUE READING
