Titel:
Gene-Gene Interaction between textitAPOA5 and textitUSF1: Two Candidate Genes for the Metabolic Syndrome 
Abstract:
Objective: The metabolic syndrome, a major cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, shows increasing prevalence worldwide. Several studies have established associations of both apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) gene variants and upstream stimulatory factor 1 (USF1) gene variants with blood lipid levels and metabolic syndrome.
