Analysis of UCPs, PPARs and PGC-1 gene polyorphism in elderly people from North-West region of Russia


Polymorphism of PPARA G/C, PPARD +294Т/С, PPARG Pro12Ala, PGC-1 Gly482Ser, UCP2 Ala55Val and UCP3 C-55T genes in elderly people (group1) and control group (25-55 aged people) (group2) from North-West Region of Russia was studied by RLFP methods. Higher frequencies of T/C PPARD, Ser/Ser PGC-1 and C/C UCP3 genotypes in group1 compared to group2 were found. Furthermore, it was shown different distribution of PPARA, PPARD, PGC-1 and UCP2 genotypes in man and woman. We suggest that PPARA, PPARD, PGC-1 and UCP3 polymorphism is significant for survival.
