SNP polymorphisms related to the topic Vitamin E (tocopherol):
|When vitamin E is consumed, an increase in IL6 production is observed in carriers of this genotype, i.e. a pro-inflammatory effect is observed.
|Involved in lipid and vitamin E metabolism. The genotype is a moderate risk factor for reduced vitamin E levels. A low-fat diet is suitable for people with this defect. On a low-fat diet (20% of energy comes from fat), carriers of the risk allele (allele G) had greater reductions in OX and LDL cholesterol levels. These studies showed better lipid profile improvement with long-term low-fat dietary intake in the risk allele G.
|Associated with higher levels of beta-carotene and tocopherol in the blood, independent of intake from food.
|Involved in lipid and vitamin E metabolism. Genotype is a moderate risk factor for reduced vitamin E levels.
|The polymorphism is associated with decreased circulating vitamin E levels.
