AIM The present study was undertaken to investigate a length polymorphism of (GT)n repeats of the heme oxygenase-1 (HMOX-1) gene and its association with serum bilirubin levels in apparently healthy adults. METHODS A total of 211 individuals (normal hematology and liver function test) with bilirubin levels of 1.7 to 22.2 μM were studied. The (GT)n repeats(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the allele and genotype frequencies and haplotype structures of the variants in the UGT1A1 gene and their association with serum bilirubin levels in healthy adults. Total serum bilirubin levels were measured in 300 healthy adults (normal hematology and liver function test) and genotyping of seven SNPs was(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to investigate the genotype and allele frequencies of the variants in the four bilirubin metabolism genes (UGT1A1, OATP2, HMOX1, and BLVRA) and their association with hyperbilirubinemia. MATERIAL AND METHODS Genotyping of 17 genetic variants was performed in 115 adults with hyperbilirubinemia and 150 controls by(More)
Genetic association studies have linked a number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. The present study was undertaken to validate the association of SNPs with development of hyperbilirubinemia in Indian neonates. Genotyping of five SNPs in two candidate genes was performed in 126 infants with hyperbilirubinemia(More)
