Abstract Models for the pathogenesis of Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) imply the role of individual genetic variations in genes involved in detoxification mechanisms. GSTP1 enzyme plays a key role in biotransformation of a variety of carcinogens. The corresponding gene is subject to a single-nucleotide polymorphism (A(313)G) leading to abolished enzyme activity. In order to evaluate whether the GSTP1 polymorphism influences MDS susceptibility, we conducted a case-control study comprising 310 de novo patients and 370 healthy controls by using a Real-Time PCR genotyping method. The GSTP1 gene status was also evaluated in relation to patients' characteristics and chromosomal abnormalities. A significantly higher incidence of the GSTP1 variant genotypes was observed in MDS patients compared to the controls (p<0.0001). The results revealed increased frequencies of heterozygotes in patients younger than 60 years old and of homozygotes G/G in older patients (p=0.007). Our results provide evidence for a pathogenetic role of the GSTP1 polymorphism on MDS risk, probably in an age-dependent manner.
