Association of low-density lipoprotein receptor polymorphisms and outcome of hepatitis C infection.

Abstract:

The low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) has been proposed to promote hepatitis C virus endocytosis and the cell membrane protein CD81 may also promote HCV host cell entry. The CD81 gene was sequenced to screen for novel polymorphisms, but no SNPs were identified. Polymorphisms within the LDLR gene are associated with the pathogenesis of familial hypercholesterolemia, atherosclerosis and obesity. We therefore studied genetic variation within the LDLR gene and clinical features of hepatitis...
