Abstract: OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the hypothesis that the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of TP53 gene are related to a risk of myocardial infarction.
METHODS: The coding SNP at codon 72 (rs1042522) and non-coding rs8064946 SNP were genotyped by polymerase chain reaction with sequence specific primers in 205 Czech patients with myocardial infarction and 148 Czech control subjects.
RESULTS: The distribution of both SNPs was in agreement with the Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium and was similar to other European populations. Our power analysis showed 96 % of probability to detect an odd ratio equal to 2. Neither rs1042522 nor rs8064946 were associated with the risk of myocardial infarction. The haplotypes combined of rs1042522 and rs8064946 were not associated with myocardial infarction in the present study.
CONCLUSION: The TP53 SNPs are not strongly associated with genetic predisposition to myocardial infarction (Tab. 3, Fig. 3, Ref. 23).
