Table 2 Overall distributions of GSTT1 and GSTM1 genotypes according to gender in the Himachal Population

From: Comparative frequency distribution of glutathione S-transferase mu (GSTM1) and theta (GSTT1) allelic forms in Himachal Pradesh population

Gender No (%) GSTM1 N (%) P value OR (CI 95%) GSTT1 N (%) P value OR (CI 95%) GSTM1 + T1 N (%) P value OR (CI 95%)
Null Non-null Null Non-null Null Non-null
Males 232 (78) 76 (32.8) 156 (67.2) p > 0.05 77(33.2) 155(68.8) p > 0.05 25(10.8) 107(46.2) p > 0.05

  1. Fisher’s exact test was used for comparison of gene frequency between male and female participants. No significant differences were observed (p > 0.05).CI- Class Interval, OD- Odd ratio, Null genotype is representing homozygous deletion (absence of both alleles)
