There are results of the determination of 10 polymorphisms of matrix Gla-protein system (gene MGP – T-138→С (rs1800802), G-7→A (rs1800801), Thr83→Ala (rs4236), gene VDR – FokI (rs2228570), BsmI (rs1544410), ApaI (rs7975232 ), TaqI (rs731236), gene GGCX – Arg325→Gln (rs699664), gene VKORS1 – T2255→C (rs2359612), gene BMP-2 – Ser37→Ala (rs2273073)) into 170 patients with ischemic atherothrombotic stroke (IATS) and 124 healthy individual is (control group). It is established that there is a connection between the IATS and polymorphic variants of genes MGP (G-7→A) and VKORC1 (T2255→C). The risk of IATS in carriers of minor allele A/A (G-7→A polymorphism) in 2.6 times higher than in carriers of the major allele (G/A + G/G), and C/C genotype (T2255→C polymorphism) in 2.2 times higher than the homozygotes of major allele. The coincidence of patients T/C and G/G, C/C and G/A genotypes, and A/A genotype (G-7→A polymorphism) with any genotype T2255→C polymorphism are increases the risk of IATS.
