abdominal aortic aneurysm

Monday 14 November 2011

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality and has a significant heritability.

Pathology

- Variant rs1466535, located within intron 1 of low-density-lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 (LRP1), might alter a SREBP-1 binding site and influence enhancer activity at the locus. This variant has a possible functional role in LRP1 expression. (#22055160#)
