26633493 Polymorphisms in the ELOVL2 gene were not associated with the risk of developing allergic disease
25450787 results show that the ELOVL2 locus provides a very good source of information about human chronological age based on analysis of blood, including bloodstains, and it may constitute a powerful and reliable predictor in future forensic age estimation models
24667918 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat-induced upregulation of ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2 (ELOVL2) in primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells
23555103 we do not found the association between rs3756593 of ELOVL2 gene and acute coronary syndrome in Chinese Han population
23061750 Methylation of ELOVL2 gene is a new epigenetic marker of age.
21917437 gene interaction analysis showed that the combined genotype of FADS1 rs174556 (T/T) and ELOVL2 rs3756963 (T/T) was weakly associated with coronary artery disease
21560298 rs3756963 in ELOVL2 gene may be associated with paranoid schizophrenia.
