Implication of genetic variants near TMEM18, BCDIN3D/FAIM2, and MC4R with coronary artery disease and obesity in Chinese: a angiography-based study

Abstract

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is multifactorial disease which occurs as a result of the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. Obesity is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Recent genome-wide association studies have identified several genes associated with obesity in Europeans. We wondered whether these genetic variants were… (More)
