Paraoxonase (PON1) is a protein component of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles that protects against oxidative damage to both low-density lipoprotein and HDL and detoxifies organophosphorus pesticides and nerve agents. A wide range of expression levels of PON1 among individuals has been observed. We examined the promoter region of PON1 for genetic factors that might affect PON1 activity levels. We conducted a deletion analysis of the PON1 promoter region in transient transfection assays… CONTINUE READING
