CYP4A11, which is a member of the cytochrome P450 family, acts mainly as an enzyme that converts arachidonic acid to 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), a metabolite involved in the maintenance of cardiovascular health. Recently, it was reported that many subfamilies of CYP genes have an association with myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of the present study was to assess the association between the human CYP4A11 gene and MI, using a haplotype-based case-control study with a separate… CONTINUE READING
