Abstract

Introduction: Premature myocardial infarction (MI) is characterized by high re-infarction rates, the occurrence of severe heart failure and therefore significant cardiovascular long-term mortality at a young age. Previous studies demonstrated that one of the most important risk factors in younger patients is family history and genetic factors. This research was launched to assess the association of ACTA2 genetic variations with premature MI.

Materials and Methods: Out of eighty unrelated patients with premature MI referred to health center, patients with autosomal dominant premature MI were included in the study. Exclusion criteria included hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and smoking. Genomic DNA was extracted from the whole peripheral blood. Eight exons and intron/exon boundaries of the ACTA2 gene were amplified, and all the amplicons were subject to Sanger sequencing.

Results: According to the criteria, 16 patients were included in our research. No mutations were found in ACTA2 gene in our pro-bands.

Keywords: Premature Myocardial Infarction; ACTA2; Pathogenesis
