Abstract

Glycoprotein 6 (GP6) is a platelet-specific collagen receptor implicated in the thrombotic pathway to acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but a possible genetic relationship between GP6 and AMI is poorly understood. We tested for the genetic association between AMI and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 24 loci, including GP6.
