    • Abstract


      The present study aimed to investigate the association of g.313A>G and g.341C>T polymorphisms of GSTP1 with coronary artery disease (CAD) in a subgroup of north Indian population. In the present case–control study, CAD patients (n = 200) and age-matched, sex-matched and ethnicity-matched healthy controls (n = 200) were genotyped for polymorphisms in GSTP1 using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. Genotype distribution of g.313A>G and g.341C>T polymorphisms of GSTP1 gene was significantly different between cases and controls (P = 0.005 and 0.024, respectively). Binary logistic regression analysis showed significant association of A/G (odds ratio (OR): 1.6, 95% CI: 1.08–2.49, P = 0.020) and G/G (OR: 3.1, 95% CI: 1.41–6.71, P = 0.005) genotypes of GSTP1 g.313A>G, and C/T (OR: 5.8, 95% CI: 1.26–26.34, P = 0.024) genotype of GSTP1 g.341C>T with CAD. The A/G and G/G genotypes of g.313A>G and C/T genotype of g.341C>T conferred 6.5-fold increased risk for CAD (OR: 6.5, 95% CI: 1.37–31.27, P = 0.018).Moreover, the recessive model of GSTP1 g.313A>G is the best fit inheritance model to predict the susceptible gene effect (OR: 2.3, 95% CI: 1.11–4.92, P = 0.020). In conclusion, statisticallysignificant associations of GSTP1 g.313A>G (A/G, G/G) and g.341C>T (C/T) genotypes with CAD were observed.
