The TGFB1 Functional Polymorphism rs1800469 and Susceptibility to Atrial Fibrillation in Two Chinese Han Populations

Abstract

Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is related to the degree of atrial fibrosis and plays critical roles in the induction and perpetuation of atrial fibrillation (AF). To investigate the association of the common promoter polymorphism rs1800469 in the TGF-β1 gene (TGFB1) with the risk of AF in Chinese Han population, we carried out a case-control study… (More)
