Atherogenesis is a chronic inflammatory process. Critical in the inflammation process is monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1). To locate genomic regions that affect circulating MCP-1 levels, a genome-wide linkage scan was conducted in a sample of whites and blacks. Phenotype and genetic marker data were available for 2501 white and 513 black participants in the National Heart Lung Blood Institute Family Heart Study follow-up examination. Heritability for MCP-1 was 0.37 in whites and 0.47… 

Duffy antigen receptor for chemokines (Darc) polymorphism regulates circulating concentrations of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and other inflammatory mediators.

It is concluded that Asp42Gly is a major regulator of erythrocyte Darc-mediated cytokine binding and thereby the circulating concentrations of several proinflammatory cytokines and also 2 mechanisms for the release of reservoir chemokines with possible clinical implications.

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 and Its Receptor Act Synergistically to Increase the Risk of Carotid Atherosclerosis

The combination of the MCP-1 CC homozygous genotype and the homozygotic or heterozygote CCR2 V64I genotype is associated with a particularly high prevalence of carotid artery plaque, which is independently associated with plaque in African American from families with premature coronary artery disease.

Association of Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein‐1 (MCP‐1)‐2518A>G Polymorphism with Susceptibility to Coronary Artery Disease: A Meta‐Analysis

The results suggested that MCP‐1 ‐2518A>G polymorphism may be associated with susceptibility to CAD, especially in Caucasians, and a recessive model to be appropriate.

The Relation of Genetic and Environmental Factors to Systemic Inflammatory Biomarker Concentrations

The authors' community-based data support the relevance of clinical and genetic factors for explaining variation in inflammatory biomarker traits and propose two novel potential candidates (APCS, MPO).

MCP-1-2518A>G polymorphism and myocardial infarction risk: a meta-analysis and meta-regression.

A meta-analysis indicates that MCP-1-2518A>G polymorphism may be a risk factor for myocardial infarction, especially among Asian populations.

Genetic and biochemical determinants of serum concentrations of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, a potential neural tube defect risk factor.

The results of these analyses indicate that, if maternal CCL-2 genotype is related to the risk of spina bifida, this relationship is likely to be more complex than initially hypothesized, perhaps depending upon folate intake, MTHFR 677C>T genotype, the distribution of folate derivatives, and immune/inflammatory activity.

Association of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1-2518A/G polymorphism and risk of coronary artery disease among the Chinese population: a meta-analysis.

The MCP-1-2518A/G polymorphism was not associated with the risk of CAD in Chinese population and the pooled odds ratio with its 95% confidence interval was estimated.

Original Article Association of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1-2518A/G polymorphism and risk of coronary artery disease among the Chinese population: a meta-analysis

The MCP-1-2518A/G polymorphism was not found to be significantly associated with CAD risk in Chinese population, and no associations were found in subgroup analysis based on source of control and endpoint.



CCL2 Polymorphisms Are Associated With Serum Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 Levels and Myocardial Infarction in the Framingham Heart Study

Background—Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is a chemokine strongly implicated in promoting atherosclerosis in animal models, but human genetic evidence is contradictory. Methods and

Assessment of genetic effects of polymorphisms in the MCP-1 gene on serum MCP-1 levels and myocardial infarction in Japanese.

Although genetic variations in CCL2 may have some influence on MCP-1 production, their influence does not seem to contribute appreciably to atherosclerosis in Japanese, and the present results did not support the recently published findings from the Framingham Heart Study.

Polymorphism of the monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP-1) gene is associated with the plasma level of MCP-1 but not with carotid intima-media thickness.

Findings indicate that plasma MCP-1 is associated with carotid atherosclerosis.

Val64Ile Polymorphism in the C-C Chemokine Receptor 2 Is Associated With Reduced Coronary Artery Calcification

This study provides genetic evidence linking CCR2 with coronary atherosclerosis in humans by quantitatively phenotyping first-degree relatives of persons with premature coronary artery disease and finding the extent of CAC was significantly lower in subjects with the C CR2-Ile64 variant than in subjects carrying 2 Val64 alleles.

Association Between Plasma Levels of Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 and Long-Term Clinical Outcomes in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes

In a large cohort of patients with acute coronary syndromes, an elevated baseline level of MCP-1 was associated both with traditional risk factors for atherosclerosis as well as an increased risk for death or myocardial infarction, independent of baseline variables.

Differential Expression of Chemokines, Risk of Stable Coronary Heart Disease, and Correlation with Established Cardiovascular Risk Markers

There may be no universal upregulation of chemokines in CHD-associated inflammation but different up regulation of IP-10 and IL-8 versus downregulation of RANTES; there was no clear disease association for MCP-1, MIP-1&agr;, or eotaxin.

Chemokine receptor (CCR2) genotype is associated with myocardial infarction and heart failure in patients under 65 years of age

The CCR2 genotype seems to predispose patients for myocardial infarction before the age of 65 years and is associated with higher mortality in the general population, which must be investigated in further studies.
