abstract

  • LVM and SV share a common genetic profile, but with only a modest reciprocal influence. Variability of LVM has some effect on calculated heritability of SV, especially in African-Americans, whereas the role of heritable volume load in determining the variability of LVM was modest only in African-Americans.
