    ..Together, these findings imply a role for ZNF542P in LDLC response to simvastatin and, importantly, highlight the potential significance of noncoding RNAs as a contributing factor to variation in drug response. ..

    ..Our results strongly support a role for SUGP1 as a novel regulator of cholesterol metabolism and suggest that it contributes to the relationship between rs10401969 and plasma cholesterol. ..
