Distribution of the HIV-1 Resistance-Conferring Alleles (CCR5delta32, CCR2-64I, and SDF1-3′A) in Russian, Ukrainian, and Belarusian Populations

Distribution of the HIV-1 Resistance-Conferring Alleles (CCR5delta32, CCR2-64I, and SDF1-3′A)... The frequencies of three alleles, CCR5delta32, CCR2-64I, and SDF1-3′A, known to decrease the risk of AIDS onset and the rate of the disease progression in HIV-infected individuals were determined in three native population samples from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. The frequencies of the alleles were 0.15, 0.12, 0.21; 0.12, 0.07, 0.20; and 0.12, 0.08, 0.26 for Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarussians, respectively. The proportion of the individuals without any of three protective alleles among Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarussians constituted 49, 65, and 61%, respectively. The genotype frequencies for the three loci studied were in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. Based on the three-locus genotype frequencies, the relative hazards of AIDS onset in HIV-infected individuals in each population were calculated as ranging from 0.79 to 0.88. In the samples of Eastern Slavs analyzed the estimated frequencies of the AIDS-protective alleles tested, as well as the frequencies of the corresponding genotypes and the relative hazards of AIDS onset were within the range of these parameters for the other European populations. The data on the allele frequencies and the relative hazard values in Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarussians can be used as the predictors of AIDS onset and progression rate in HIV-1-infected individuals from the populations studied. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals
