In a human intervention trial, a coffee, combining nature green coffee bean constituents and dark roast products was studied towards its potential to activate the Nrf2/ARE-pathway in PBLs. The study coffee was identified as a strong inducer of Nrf2 and downstream GST1A1 and UGT1A1 gene transcription. However, the response of the participants was found to depend on the respective genotype. The -651 SNP in the Nrf2 gene as well as the heterozygote 6/7 sequence in the UGT1A1 gene significantly down-regulated the susceptibility to respond to coffee, proposing the existing genotype to be critical for the response to the coffee.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
