|Abstract:||The relationship between coagulation factor VII (FVII) levels in plasma and FVII genotypes, determined by three polymorphisms (5'F7, IVS7, and 353R/Q), were studied in 500 control subjects enrolled in European multicenter study. The selection of particular FVII genotypes and the analysis of variance clearly indicated the independent contribution of a single 5'F7 insertion (A2) or 353Q (M2) allele to lowering /by approximately 25%) plasma levels of activated FVII (FVIIa). The M2 allele alone was found to make a major contribution to the genetically determined component of the FVIIa levels. Genotypes associated with low FVII levels were significantly rarer in the northern part of Europe (Oslo) than in the southern part (Rome, Murcia). The contribution made by the FVII genotype to the total variance of FVIIa levels was higher (30%) than that made to either FVII activity (25%) or FVII antigen (12%). Subjects with different FVII genotypes showed up to fivefold differences in mean FVIIa values, thus allowing attribution of a substantial part of the considerable interindividual variation to genetic variation, which may be of assistance in the interpretation of FVIIa levels on an individual basis. When FVII levels were adjusted by age and by triglyceride levels, the contribution of FVII genotypes to the FVII phenotypic variance was virtually unchanged. Taken together, these data indicate that in healthy control subjects the FVII genotype is a major predictor of plasma FVIIa levels and would support further study on the role of FVII genetic components in the development of cardiovascular disease.
