Association of matrix metalloproteinase 3 and γ-glutamyltransferase 1 gene polymorphisms with the cardio-ankle vascular index in young Russians

, : Association of matrix metalloproteinase 3 and γ-glutamyltransferase 1 gene polymorphisms with the cardio-ankle vascular index in young Russians. Cardiology in the Young 26(6): 1238-1240

Specific gene polymorphisms are known to be associated with a different arterial physiology in the younger generation. The present study found that young Russians with the matrix metalloproteinase 3 6A/6A and γ-glutamyltransferase 1AA genotypes have lower levels of the cardio-ankle vascular index - a recent measure of arterial stiffness. This observation may serve as an additional tool for cardiovascular disease prevention in the young population.

An anisotropic glucose oxidase-polymer surfactant nanoconjugate is synthesized and shown to exhibit complex temperature-dependent phase behavior in the solvent-free state. At close to room temperature, the nanoconjugate crystallizes as a mesolamel...
