GST is a detoxification agent. Few study reported the GST polymorphism associated with iron status. Our aimof this study was to estimate GST gene frequency and iron status in healthy Kol tribals. Two hundred subjects were evaluated to determine the frequency ofGST gene deletions. The GST null genotype was significantly present in population however their was no correlation was found with GST genotype and iron status.
