Table 4 Serum non-HDL cholesterol levels classified by drinking status and Mt5178 C/A genotype

From: Difference in effects of cigarette smoking or alcohol consumption on serum non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels is related to mitochondrial DNA 5178 C/A polymorphism in middle-aged Japanese men: a cross-sectional study

  Drinking status P for trend

Mt5178A N = 21 N = 60 N = 74  
non-HDL cholesterol 151.2 ± 7.6 147.9 ± 4.5 142.6 ± 4.0 P = 0.245

  1. non-HDL cholesterol levels are given as least-square mean ± SE adjusted for age and body mass index; non-HDL cholesterol levels are given as least-square mean ± SE adjusted for age, body mass index, cigarette smoking, coffee consumption and antihypertensive medication use. Bonferroni correction for multiple comparisons was applied. *P < 0.05 vs non- or ex-drinkers. HDL, high-density lipoprotein; Mt5178C, mitochondrial DNA 5178 cytosine; Mt5178A, mitochondrial DNA 5178 adenosine.
