Vitiligo is an acquired pigmentary disorder of the skin involving melanocyte dysfunction. It has been reported that melanocyte impairment could be related to increased oxidative stress. The glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are group of polymorphic enzymes that are important in protection against oxidative stress. To find the relationship between GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphisms with vitiligo susceptibility, GSTM1 and GSTT1 (homozygous deletion vs. non-deleted) polymorphisms between vitiligo… CONTINUE READING
