Association of polymorphisms in the sex hormone genes with the presence and severity of coronary artery disease
Objective: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is an important public health problem worldwide. Therefore, it is important to identify the molecular mechanisms and the candidate gene polymorphisms involved in the development of ...
Levels of miR-130b-5p in peripheral blood are associated with severity of coronary artery disease
Background Although patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) have a high mortality rate, the pathogenesis of CAD is still poorly understood. During the past decade, microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as new, potential ...
Val109Asp polymorphism in Intelectin 1 gene is associated with coronary artery disease severity in women
Objective: Intelectin-1 is an anti-inflammatory adipokine encoded by the Intelectin 1 (ITLN1) gene. Genetic variations in the ITLN1 gene affect the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and related CAD risk factors. In ...
