Influence of exonic polymorphisms in the gene for LDL receptor-related protein (LRP) on risk of coronary artery disease.

Abstract

The low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein (LRP) is a multifunctional receptor involved in numerous biological processes relevant to vascular biology including lipoprotein metabolism. Several polymorphisms in the LRP gene have been described and in this study we examined their influence on coronary artery disease (CAD). We compared the… (More)
