Factor VII polymorphisms associated with plasma factor VII coagulant activity levels in healthy Tunisians (2005)Factor VII gene polymorphisms may contribute to elevations in factor VII coagulant [FVIIc] levels that have been associated with cardiovascular risk. We therefore studied the association of two polymorphisms--R353Q polymorphism at codon 353 involving the catalytic region and the 10 base pair [bp] insertion polymorphism involving the promoter region--with FVllc levels in 176 healthy Tunisians. The variant Q allele had a frequency of 0.213 [SD 0.021] whereas the frequency of the 10 bp insert allele was 0.250 [SD 0.023]. Subjects with R/R genotype ...
