Title:
Polymorphisms in thrombospondin genes and myocardial infarction: a case-control study and a meta-analysis of available evidence. 
Abstract:
A role of thrombospondins (TSPs) in atherosclerosis and thrombosis was suggested by associations of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the genes coding for TSP-1 (rs2228262; Asn700Ser), TSP-2 (rs8089; 3' untranslated region), and TSP-4 (rs1866389; Ala387Pro) with myocardial infarction (MI). However, these findings were not consistently confirmed in replication studies. We determined the genotypes related to these polymorphisms in a large case-control sample of MI and performed a meta-analysis...    »
