Functional genetic variants of glutathione S-transferase protect against serum ascorbic acid deficiency.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are detoxifying enzymes that contribute to the glutathione-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) antioxidant cycle. OBJECTIVE The objective was to determine whether GST genotypes modify the association between dietary vitamin C and serum ascorbic acid. DESIGN Nonsmoking men and women (n = 905) between 20 and 29 y of age… (More)
