BACKGROUND Keshan disease (KD) is a fatal dilated cardiomyopathy with unknown etiology. We studied the gene-environment interaction in the pathogenesis of KD by assessing the association of low blood selenium and polymorphisms in glutathione peroxidase-1 (GPx-1) gene. METHODS The concentration of blood selenium and the activity and polymorphisms of GPx-1 in 71KD patients and 290 controls were measured. The functions of rat neonatal cardiomyocytes resulting from overexpression of 2 variants of… CONTINUE READING
