Title:
Leucine 7 to proline 7 polymorphism of the preproneuropeptide Y gene is not associated with restenosis after coronary stenting. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: To identify if an association exists between the leucine 7 (Leu7) to proline 7 (Pro7) polymorphism located in the signal peptide of the preproneuropeptide Y (preproNPY) gene and restenosis after coronary stenting. The Pro7 allele of the preproNPY gene affects the plasma levels of human neuropeptide Y, a potent mitogen of vascular smooth muscle cells. METHODS: A population of 1850 consecutive patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease undergoing coronary stent implantation was enr...    »
