Genome-Wide Association Study of Plasma Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in the InCHIANTI Study

Abstract

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have a role in many physiological processes, including energy production, modulation of inflammation, and maintenance of cell membrane integrity. High plasma PUFA concentrations have been shown to have beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease and mortality. To identify genetic contributors of plasma PUFA concentrations… (More)
