Title:
Association of transforming growth factor-beta1 gene polymorphisms with myocardial infarction in patients with angiographically proven coronary heart disease. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: Transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta1 (TGF-beta1) is a multifunctional cytokine that exhibits vasculoprotective properties. Production and plasma levels of TGF-beta1 are influenced by polymorphisms in the TGF-beta1 gene (TGFB1). We investigated whether the -509C/T (rs1800469), 868T/C (rs1982073), 913G/C (rs1800471), and 11929C/T (rs1800472) polymorphisms of TGFB1 are associated with myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS: The study population consisted of 3657 patients with myoca...    »
