Title:
Association between PPARalpha gene polymorphisms and myocardial infarction. 
Abstract:
PPARalpha (peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor alpha) regulates the expression of genes that are involved in lipid metabolism, tissue homoeostasis and inflammation. Consistent rodent and human studies suggest a link between PPARalpha function and cardiovascular disease, qualifying PPARalpha [PPARA in HUGO (Human Genome Organisation) gene nomenclature] as a candidate gene for coronary artery disease. In the present study, we comprehensively evaluated common genetic variations within the PP...    »
