Özet

Objective: Apelin is a novel endogenous peptide with inotropic and vasodilatory properties and is the ligand for the angiotensin receptor-like 1 (APJ) receptor. The aim of the study was to investigate the association of 2 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the apelin gene with susceptibility to coronary artery disease (CAD) in the Turkish population.
