Abstract (English)

Elevated serum Lp(a) levels are a risk factor for atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction. Lp(a) serum levels are highly heritable, and to a great extend determined by the LPA locus on chromosome 6q27. Polymorphisms influencing the Lp(a) levels have already been identified, but a proportion of the variance in Lp(a) levels remains to be explained. In this investigation different methods were ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Erhöhte Lp(a) Spiegel in Serum stellen einen Risikofaktor für Atherosklerose und Herzinfarkt dar. Der LPA Genlokus ist auf Chromosom 6q27 lokalisiert und bestimmt einen Grossteil der Lp(a) Serumspiegel, die sehr stark erblich sind. Es wurden bereits Polymorphismen identifiziert, die die Lp(a) Serumspiegel beeinflussen, aber ein Anteil der Varianz in den Lp(a) Spiegeln konnte noch nicht erklärt ...
