A Meta-Analysis of the Association between Microrna-196A2 and Risk of Ischemic Stroke and Coronary Artery Disease in Asian Population


Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs) that affect the sncRNA function and target gene expression to mediate the risk of certain diseases. The association between the miR-196a2 rs11614913 and ischemic stroke (IS) and coronary artery disease (CAD) is still conflicting and inconclusive. This meta-analysis aimed at analysing studies which have been done so far to get a more precise assessment of the association between the mutation and these two diseases.
