The article cites a research study that analyzes the association of UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine: polypeptide Nacetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2 gene (GALNT2) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and several environmental factors with serum lipid levels in the Guangxi Mulao and Han populations in China. The study included a total of 775 subjects who were randomly selected from stratified randomized cluster samples.

    Background: Proprotein convertase subtilisin-like kexin type 9 (PCSK9) plays a key role in regulating plasma lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels. However, the association of E670G (rs505151) polymorphism in the PCSK9 gene and serum lipid levels is inconsistent in several previous...

    Background: Apolipoprotein (Apo) B is the major component of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and chylomicrons. Many genetic polymorphisms of the Apo B have been described, associated with variation of lipid levels. However, very few studies have evaluated the...

    We analyzed single nucleotide polymorphisms of the cold receptor TRPM8 gene as genetic markers of blood serum lipid indices in Shorians. Associations were found between rs11562975 (L250L) TRPM8 gene mononucleotide polymorphism with total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol and between rs28901637...
