AIMS The human formyl peptide receptor (FPR) is a G protein-coupled chemoattractant receptor that is thought to mediate inflammatory responses. The FPR1 gene is highly polymorphic. In a recent study, the FPR1 c.32C>T SNP, resulting in the amino-acid substitution I11T, was reported to be significantly associated with C-reactive protein levels. Therefore… CONTINUE READING
