By means of a large-scale, case-control association study using 92,788 gene-based single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, we identified a candidate locus on chromosome 6p21 associated with susceptibility to myocardial infarction. Subsequent linkage-disequilibrium (LD) mapping and analyses of haplotype structure showed significant associations between myocardial infarction and a single 50 kb halpotype comprised of five SNPs in LTA (encoding lymphotoxin-α), NFKBIL1 (encoding nuclear factor… 
Identification of a novel non-coding RNA, MIAT, that confers risk of myocardial infarction
TLDR
Results indicate that the altered expression of MIAT by the SNP may play some role in the pathogenesis of MI.
Lymphotoxin-α Gene and Risk of Myocardial Infarction in 6,928 Cases and 2,712 Controls in the ISIS Case-Control Study
TLDR
A meta-analysis found no significant association with CHD risk using a recessive model and only a modest association using a dominant model (with narrow confidence intervals around these risk estimates).
Genome-wide association study to identify SNPs conferring risk of myocardial infarction and their functional analyses
TLDR
Functional SNPs within the lymphotoxin-α gene (LTA) located on chromosome 6p21 that conferred susceptibility to myocardial infarction are identified and galectin-2 protein is identified as a binding partner of LTA protein.
Haplotype-based association of four lymphotoxin-alpha gene polymorphisms with the risk of coronary artery disease in Han Chinese.
TLDR
A protective effect of the haplotype G-C-T-C on the occurrence of CAD is shown, suggesting the involvement of LTA in CAD pathogenesis.
Genetic Variation in the Lymphotoxin-Alpha Pathway and the Risk of Ischemic Stroke in European Populations
TLDR
Genetic variation in the lymphotoxin-α cascade (LTA, LGALS2, and PSMA6) is not a major risk factor for ischemic stroke, and none of these associations could be replicated in the UK population.
Functional variants in the lymphotoxin-alpha gene predict cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients.
TLDR
LTA and IL-6 gene variants independently predicted risk for CVD among dialysis patients, suggesting that susceptibility in multiple inflammatory pathways contribute to the development of CVD.
Association of variants in the BAT1-NFKBIL1-LTA genomic region with protection against myocardial infarction in Europeans.
TLDR
The finding that protective effects are linked with minor homozygous genotypes and haplotype 1 of the BAT1-NFKBIL1-LTA region in Europeans is opposite to the observation of associated risks in Japanese.
Polymorphisms in the Lymphotoxin Alpha Gene and the Risk of Ischemic Stroke in the Japanese Population
TLDR
A case-control study in a large Japanese population found neither the A252G nor C804A polymorphism of the LTA gene was associated with stroke overall and any subtypes of ischemic stroke in the Japanese population.
Genetic variations in the gene encoding TFAP2B are associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
It is suggested that TFAP2B might be a new candidate for conferring susceptibility to type 2 diabetes and contribute to the pathogenesis of type 2 Diabetes mellitus.

Association between a single-nucleotide polymorphism in the promoter of the human interleukin-3 gene and rheumatoid arthritis in Japanese patients, and maximum-likelihood estimation of combinatorial effect that two genetic loci have on susceptibility to the disease.
TLDR
The stronger association that the authors observed in this clinically distinct subgroup (females with early onset), within a region where linkage disequilibrium was not significantly extended, suggested that the genuine RA locus should locate either within or close to the IL-3 gene.
Gene-based SNP discovery as part of the Japanese Millennium Genome Project: identification of 190 562 genetic variations in the human genome
TLDR
This work has been systematically exploring common variants by resequencing genomic regions containing genes in DNA from 24 Japanese individuals, and so far has identified 174 269 single-nucleotide polymorphisms and 16 293 insertion/deletion polymorphisms within gene regions.
A high-throughput SNP typing system for genome-wide association studies
TLDR
The results indicate the feasibility of undertaking genome-wide association studies using blood samples of only 5–10 ml, and theoretically, more than 200,000 SNPs could be genotyped at once when 100 μg of genomic DNA is available.
High-resolution haplotype structure in the human genome
TLDR
A high-resolution analysis of the haplotype structure across 500 kilobases on chromosome 5q31 using 103 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a European-derived population offers a coherent framework for creating a haplotype map of the human genome.
Loss of Lymphotoxin-α but Not Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Reduces Atherosclerosis in Mice*
TLDR
The disparity in results between ligand- and receptor-deficient mice suggests there are undefined members of the TNF ligand and receptor signaling pathway involved with regulating atherogenesis.
Catalog of 258 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes encoding three organic anion transporters, three organic anion-transporting polypeptides, and three NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase flavoproteins
TLDR
High-resolution maps of single-nucleotide polymorphisms detected in genes encoding three organic-anion transporters, three organic anion-transporting polypeptides, and three nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, reduced:ubiquinone oxidoreductase flavoproteins will serve as a useful resource for analyzing potential associations between variations in these nine genes and differences in human susceptibilities to common diseases or response to drug therapies.
The ligands and receptors of the lymphotoxin system.
TLDR
Although once thought to be merely a redundant form of TNF, new findings have indicated that lymphotoxin has a role in immune physiology distinct from TNF and forms a system of secreted and membrane-anchored immunoregulatory molecules.
Maximum-likelihood estimation of molecular haplotype frequencies in a diploid population.
TLDR
An expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm leading to maximum-likelihood estimates of molecular haplotype frequencies under the assumption of Hardy-Weinberg proportions is implemented and appears to be useful for the analysis of nuclear DNA sequences or highly variable loci.

TLDR
Results of logistic regression analyses indicated that the relationship of ICAM-1 and E-selectin with CHD and CAA was independent of other known CHD risk factors and was most pronounced in the highest quartile.
