Abstract: Objectives: To assess causality of inflammatory RNA molecules for myocardial infarction (MI) using a Mendelian randomization approach. Methods: Samples were 524 men with a history of MI and 628 controls from the Study of Myocardial Infarction Leiden (SMILE). Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) G-173C, protein tyrosine phosphatase, non-receptor type, 1 (PTPN1) 1484InsG and chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 3 (CCL3 or MIP1-alpha) C1685T were selected since they are in genes that exhibited elevated mRNA expression measured using multiplex ligation probe-dependent amplification in cases compared to controls.
