Unformatted text preview: idenBfied in European populaBons. Although the 9p21.3 locus has been replicated in Asian and in African American populaBons, it is important to assess the generalizability of results for the CAD/MI suscepBbility loci in other populaBons. Genes mapped to CAD/MI suscepBbility loci show significant enrichment in lipoprotein metabolism, including genes such as LDLR, LPA, PCSK9, PEMT, and the nearest genes to the 11q23.3 locus (APOA1, APOA5, and APOC3) 6 5/7/13 Interactions between genes mapped to coronary artery disease (CAD)/myocardial infarction (MI) susceptibility loci.
