Hyperuricemia associates with atherosclerosis complications, but it is uncertain whether this relationship is causal in nature. The urate transporter GLUT9 (encoded by the SLC2A9 gene) is a major genetic determinant of serum uric acid level in humans. Because polymorphisms are distributed randomly at mating (Mendelian randomization), studies based on GLUT9 ...
