Association of PLA2G7 polymorphisms with carotid atherosclerosis in hypertensive Japanese


Although the plasma platelet-activating factor-acetylhydrolase (pPAF-AH) gene (PLA2G7) polymorphisms are reportedly associated with atherosclerotic diseases, their effects in hypertensive patients have not been well examined. Thus, we genotyped V279F, a loss-of-function mutation commonly seen in the Japanese, and I198T and A379V commonly seen in Caucasians… (More)
