Association between Q192R paraoxonase 1 polymorphism and serumadipocyte-fatty acid binding protein (FABP4) levels in Mexican women Article uri icon


  • Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the genetic effects of PON1 Q192R polymorphism on serum FABP4 levels in Mexican women. Methods: PON1 Q192R polymorphism was genotyped using a TaqMan allelic discrimination assay and serum FABP4 concentration was measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Results: The distribution of genotype frequencies in the assessed women (PON1 Q192R polymorphism) was QQ = 20%25, QR = 48%25 and RR = 32%25. Significantly higher serum FABP4 levels were found in women with genotype QR/RR (20.6 ± 2.20 ng/mL), when compared with the levels found in the QQ group (12.8 ± 1.70 ng/mL) (p =.004). After, the odds ratio (OR) was calculated by binomial logistic regression analysis and a significantly higher OR was found in the QR/RR group when compared with the QQ group (OR = 3.45; 95%25 CI = 1.80–16.50; p <.05). Conclusion: The results support an association between 192R-allele of the PON1 polymorphism (Q192R) and increased serum FABP4 levels (suggested as an early biomarker of CVDs risk) in assessed Mexican women. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor %26 Francis Group.
