In this study, we genotyped polymorphism in GPX1 Pro198→Leu (C→T) rs 1050450 in four groups, i.e., patients with coronary artery disease, people who lived a long time (over 90 years), people who died early (before 55 years) from cardiovascular disease, and the Russian population as a control group. We have found a significant higher T-allele frequency in men with coronary artery disease, i.e., 34.84% (χ2 = 5.228, p = 0.022; OR =1.46), and in men who died early from cardiovascular diseases, 38.16% (χ2 = 6.461, p = 0.011; OR = 1.69) compared to men in the control group, 26.8%. Moreover, a significantly higher genotype TT frequency has been shown in patients with coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction before age 50, which is 19.44% compared to the control group, which was 7.28% (χ2 = 9.55, p = 0.002). The TT frequency in individuals who lived a long time (4.39%) was the lowest and differed significantly from the group with coronary artery disease, which was 12.79% (χ2 = 8.07, p = 0.0045), and from the subgroup with coronary artery disease with myocardial infarction before age 50, which was 19.44% (χ2 = 14.49, p = 0.0001). Thus, our results indicate that the TT allele (Leu) of GPX1 Pro198→Leu (C > T) polymorphism is unfavorable for successful aging; it leads to predisposition to coronary artery disease, early myocardial infarction (before age 50), and early death (before age 55).

A micropropagation protocol was developed for multiplication of seedless lemon (Citrus limon L. cv. Kaghzi Kalan) using nodal explants. The maximum shoot regeneration was observed on low level of BAP (0.1 mg l−1) or kinetin (0.5 mg l−1). BA was recorded to be better than kinetin in terms of ... more
The objective of this study was to evaluate the activity, kinetic behavior, and thermal inactivation kinetics of peroxidase (POD) in aqueous extracts from two kinds of milk ripe stage corn, sweet corn and waxy corn. Optimum activities using guaiacol as the hydrogen donor were obtained for s ... more
