Association of MIR-499a expression and seed region variant (rs3746444) with cardiovascular disease in Egyptian patients
BACKGROUND: Circulating microRNAs could be powerful markers of acute myocardial infarction (MI) and its functional genetic variants could increase susceptibility to cardiovascular disease (CVD). The current study aimed to quantify the microRNA (miR)-499a levels in serum of MI patients compared to hypertensive and healthy subjects and to investigate the association of its A/G variant rs3746444 with CVD in a sample ... إقراء المزيد
