The narrow-sense and common single nucleotide polymorphism heritability of early repolarization.
BACKGROUND: Early repolarization (ER) is a risk marker for sudden cardiac death. Higher risk is associated with horizontal/descending ST-segment ER in the inferior or inferolateral ECG leads. Studies in family cohorts have ...
Protein-coding variants implicate novel genes related to lipid homeostasis contributing to body-fat distribution.
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2019-02-18)
Body-fat distribution is a risk factor for adverse cardiovascular health consequences. We analyzed the association of body-fat distribution, assessed by waist-to-hip ratio adjusted for body mass index, with 228,985 predicted ...
Multi-Ancestry Genome-Wide Association Study of Lipid Levels Incorporating Gene-Alcohol Interactions.
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-29)
An individual's lipid profile is influenced by genetic variants and alcohol consumption, but the contribution of interactions between these exposures has not been studied. We therefore incorporated gene-alcohol interactions ...
Genome-wide association meta-analysis of 30,000 samples identifies seven novel loci for quantitative ECG traits.
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-01-24)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of quantitative electrocardiographic (ECG) traits in large consortia have identified more than 130 loci associated with QT interval, QRS duration, PR interval, and heart rate (RR ...
