Polymorphism of glutathione transferase Omega 1 in a population exposed to a high environmental arsenic burden.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES AND METHODS The aim of this study was to investigate genetic variation in glutathione transferase omega 1 (GSTO1-1) in Atacameños, an indigenous population from Chile that has been exposed to environmental arsenic for many generations. GSTO1-1 is thought to catalyse the rate-limiting step in the biotransformation of arsenic in humans and may… (More)
