The PPARα gene code for transcriptional factor that is a central regulator of expression of genes involved in fatty acid metabolism and is believed to be a one of the genes of health-related fitness phenotype. The aim of this study was to examine the hypothesis that G allele of PPARα intron 7 G/C polymorphic site (rs4253778) is positively associated with endurance athlete status. PPARα genotypes were analyzed for 55 Polish rowers: 30 elite rowers representing the highest national competitive… CONTINUE READING
