The phosphodiesterase 8B gene rs4704397 is associated with thyroid function, risk of myocardial infarction and body height. The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
Objective: High serum thyrotropin (TSH) levels predict cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recently several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with TSH levels have been identified, one of them being the rs4704397 SNP in the phosphodiesterase 8B (PDE8B) gene. If the relation between thyroid function and CVD is causal, one could also expect rs4704397 genotypes to predict CVD and possibly ...
