A recent case-control study reported that a functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the proteasome subunit alpha type 6 gene (PSMA6) (rs1048990, C/G) was associated with susceptibility to myocardial infarction (MI) in the Japanese population. Replication studies have been performed in European and other Japanese study samples, but the results were not conclusive. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether this locus confers significant susceptibility to MI in a Chinese… CONTINUE READING
