The present study was carried out to assess the role of androgen receptor CAG repeat polymorphism and X chromosome inactivation (XCI) pattern among Indian PCOS women and controls which has not been hitherto explored and also to test the hypothesis that shorter CAG alleles would be preferentially activated in PCOS. CAG repeat polymorphism and X chromosome(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome is known to be characterized by metabolic abnormalities such as hyperinsulinemia, adiposity and dyslipidemia. Both insulin receptor substrate-1 and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ have emerged as significant candidate genes in the pathogenesis of PCOS. In this study, we report for the first time, the association(More)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is known to be characterized by metabolic disorder in which hyperinsulinemia and peripheral insulin resistance are central features. Given the physiological overlap between PCOS and type-2 diabetes (T2DM), and calpain 10 gene (CAPN10) being a strong candidate for T2DM, a number of studies have analyzed CAPN10 SNPs among PCOS(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of CAG repeat polymorphism and X-chromosome Inactivation (XCI) pattern in Recurrent Spontaneous Abortions among Indian women which has not been hitherto explored. 117 RSA cases and 224 Controls were included in the study. Cases were recruited from two different hospitals--Lakshmi Fertility Clinic,(More)
BACKGROUND We attempt to ascertain if the 3 linked single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the Progesterone Receptor (PR) gene (exon 1: G 1031 C; S344T, exon 4: G 1978 T; L660V and exon 5: C 2310 T; H770H) and the PROGINS insertion in the intron G, between exons 7 and 8, are associated with Recurrent Spontaneous Abortion (RSA) in the Indian population.

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G is predominantly expressed on the extravillous cytotrophoblasts at the fetal-maternal interface. The 14-bp polymorphism in exon 8 is associated with HLA-G messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) stability and isoform alternative splicing patterns, thereby influencing the functionality of HLA-G in pregnancy. We analysed the 14-bp(More)
Abnormal luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion and action are known to affect ovarian steroidogenesis and thus playing a crucial role in manifestation of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This study is first of its kind to study association of LH β-subunit gene variants with PCOS among South-Indian women. 250 PCOS cases and 299 controls were recruited for the(More)
