Two-locus linkage analysis applied to putative quantitative trait loci for lipoprotein(a) levels.


Plasma levels of lipoprotein(a) - Lp(a) - are associated with cardiovascular risk (Danesh et al., 2000) and were long believed to be influenced by the LPA locus on chromosome 6q27 only. However, a recent report of Broeckel et al. (2002) suggested the presence of a second quantitative trait locus on chromosome 1 influencing Lp(a) levels. Using a two-locus… (More)
