The chromosomal locus 9p21 is a novel genetic marker for a variety of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In a recent study, we have demonstrated an association between the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1333040C>T on chromosome 9p21 and sporadic brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs). Here, we extended our analysis to an additional SNP on chromosome 9p21 (rs7865618A>G) and increased our sample size including BAVMs from two different Italian neurosurgical centers.

Abstract

The chromosomal locus 9p21 is a novel genetic marker for a variety of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In a recent study, we have demonstrated an association between the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1333040C>T on chromosome 9p21 and sporadic brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs). Here, we extended our analysis to an additional SNP on chromosome 9p21 (rs7865618A>G) and increased our sample size including BAVMs from two different Italian neurosurgical centers.
