|Abstract||Background: Previous reports have indicated an association of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) with risk factors for atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD). Because some of these risk factors form components of metabolic syndrome, in the present study, we investigated the association of an important promoter region polymorphism of MCP-1, A-2518G, and its serum levels with metabolic syndrome in a South Indian cohort.Methods: The study comprised of 126 healthy subjects aged 30-59 years from South India. Subjects were classified on the basis of presence or absence of metabolic syndrome and metabolic syndrome components as per the International Diabetes Federation definition. MCP-1 genotyping was done by polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment-length polymorphism, and serum levels were estimated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.Results: The MCP-1 -2518G allele frequency in the study population was 32.9% and the mean MCP-1 serum levels were 523 +/- 272.3 pg/mL. Subjects with metabolic syndrome showed an increased presence of the MCP-1-2518G allele in comparison to those without metabolic syndrome (odds ratio [OR] = 5.03, P = 0.02). The association was related to a higher proportion of this allele in subjects with increased waist circumference (OR = 3.78, P = 0.05).Conclusions: The MCP-1 -2518G allele may be contributing to atherosclerosis and CAD by conferring an increased risk to metabolic syndrome and/or obesity.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
