Background: Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPx1) and catalase (CAT) are the major intracellular antioxidant enzymes that can detoxify hydrogen peroxide into water, preventing cellular injury from reactive oxygen species. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of GPx1 P198L (Pro198Leu, C559T, rs1050450) and CAT C-262T (rs1001179) genetic polymorphisms with the risk of PCOS and evaluate the effects of the genotypes on clinical, hormonal, metabolic and oxidative stress parameters in Chinese women.Methods: This...
