Abstract

Background: Variations in the apolipoprotein A-1 (APOA1) gene, a determinant of plasma high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and apoA-I levels, may contribute to cardiovascular diseases. We evaluated the effects of a promoter polymorphism (-75G>A) in the APOA1 gene on metabolic syndrome (MetS) components in a Turkish population sample.
