Background: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been the primary tool for an unbiased study of the genetic background of coronary artery disease (CAD). They have identified a list of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). In this study, we aimed to replicate the association of rs2954029 and rs6982502, a GWAS identified SNP, to CAD in an Iranian population.

Methods: A sample of 285 subjects undergoing coronary angiography, including 134 CAD patients and 151 healthy. The genotype determination of rs2954029 and rs6982502 SNPs performed using the high-resolution melting analysis (HRM) technique. 

Results: Our results revealed that the TT genotype of rs2954029 (p= 0.009) and rs6982502 (p< 0.001) were significantly higher in CAD patients compared with controls. Binary logistic regression showed that rs6982502 and rs2954029 increase the risk of CAD incidence (2.470 times, p= 0.011, 95% CI= [1.219-4.751], and 2.174 times, p= 0.033, 95% CI= [1.066-4.433] respectively). After adjusting for confounders, we found that rs6982502 and rs2954029 are significantly associated with CAD risk.

Conclusions: These data showed that the TT genotype of rs2954029 and rs6982502 is associated with the risk of CAD in a hospital-based sample of the Iranian population, which has replicated the result of recent GWAS studies.
