Meta analysis of candidate gene variants outside the LPA locus with Lp(a) plasma levels in 14,500 participants of six White European cohorts.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Both genome-wide association studies and candidate gene studies have reported that the major determinant of plasma levels of the Lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] reside within the LPA locus on chromosome 6. We have used data from the HumanCVD BeadChip to explore the contribution of other candidate genes determining Lp(a) levels. METHODS: 48,032 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from the Illumina HumanCVD BeadChip were genotyped in 5059 participants of the Whitehall II study (WHII) of ...
