Pamela Arias lost over 150 pounds. After being overweight for most of her life, Pamela admits she weighs 24 pounds more right now than she did in the 6th grade. And to think that I lived my entire life this way until I was 38 years old, she said. Im so glad I made the decision two years ago to change my life.

Author Affiliations

GP78 is a membrane-anchored ubiquitin ligase mediating the degradation of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-CoA coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) and Insig-1, which was very essential for the synthesis of cholesterol process. Cholesterol levels have a causal role in the development of cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to assess the association between the human gp78 gene polymorphism and coronary artery disease (CAD) in a Han and Uygur population of China.

We used two independent case-control studies: a Han population (602 CAD patients and 572control subjects) and a Uygur population (374 CAD patients and 376control subjects).
