Association between Serum Paraoxonase 1 Activities (PONase/AREase) and L55M Polymorphism in Risk of Female Infertility

, : Association between Serum Paraoxonase 1 Activities (PONase/AREase) and L55M Polymorphism in Risk of Female Infertility. Avicenna Journal of Medical Biotechnology 7(4): 173-178

The risk of developing female infertility has been associated with gene polymorphisms that decrease the activity of enzymes involved in systemic Oxidative Stress (OS). In this study, PON1 L55M polymorphism for association with susceptibility to infertility was investigated among Iranian female population. Samples from 120 Iranian females [20 endometriosis; 30 Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCO); 70 controls] were analyzed and PCR-RFLP assay was used to determine the PON1 rs854560 (L55M) frequencies. The paraoxonase (PONase) and arilesterase (AREase) activities of PON1 enzyme were also assessed in order to investigate the association between serum PON1 activities, female infertility, and PON1 L55M polymorphism. The women with a MM genotype (p=0.021; OR=2.55) showed more possibilities of experiencing infertility than those with a LM genotype (p=0.039; OR=1.91). According to LSD test, endometriosis subjects had significantly lower paraoxonase enzyme activity compared to control group (p=0.0024; CI=95%). No significant difference was found in women with PCOS for both PONase and AREase activity in comparison with control group (p=0.469; CI=95%). Furthermore, PON1 activities were the highest in LL genotype followed by LM and then MM genotype (MM<LM<LL) in both patients and controls. PON1 L55M polymorphism may be associated with serum PON1 activity and the risk of developing female infertility.
