Genetic analysis in UK Biobank links insulin resistance and transendothelial migration pathways to coronary artery disease

08:01 EDT 24 Aug 2017 | Nature Publishing

Sekar Kathiresan and colleagues perform a genome-wide association test for coronary artery disease (CAD) using data from the UK Biobank. They identify 15 new loci and perform phenome-wide association scanning, implicating insulin resistance pathways and transendothelial migration of leukocytes in CAD.
