Most robustly replicated CAD suscepBbility gene across many studies comprising diverse cohorts. 20% and 25% of Caucasians are homozygous for risk alleles, resulBng in esBmates of 10–31% populaBon aTributable risk. The CAD ­associated single nucleoBde polymorphisms (SNPs) are located within a 58 ­kb linkage disequilibrium block on chromosome 9p21.3 that does not contain any known protein ­coding genes. DeleBon of the orthologous 70 ­kb non ­coding interval on mouse chromosome4 affects cardiac expression of neighboring genes, as well as proliferaBon...
