The aim of the current study was to determine whether the rs17602729 polymorphism in the Adenosine monophosphate deaminase-1 (AMPD1) gene is related to elite athlete performance. A total of 60 elite athletes, aged 18-35, who were split into two groups-31 sprinters/power athletes and 29 endurance athletes-as well as 20 control/sedentary individuals, willingly participated in the study. The performance levels of the athletes, based on their personal bests (PBs), were rated using the World Athletics (WA) score. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was performed on the genomic DNA that was extracted from the subjects' blood samples. Using linear regression models, the study sought to determine the relationship between the athletes' PB, sex, and sport type and the rs17602729 polymorphism both within and between the groups. The distribution of the GG, GA, and AA genotypes of the rs17602729 polymorphism differed significantly within and between the groups, according to the data (p < 0.05). Nonetheless, no statistically significant variations were observed in the correlation between the athletes' PBs and the rs17602729 polymorphism among the groups (p > 0.05). In conclusion, the G allele of the ADMP1 rs17602729 polymorphism appears to provide a benefit to sprinters and power athletes. Nonetheless, to confirm this hypothesis, additional research with more participants and a multi-genetic analysis approach is required.

Abstract

The aim of the current study was to determine whether the rs17602729 polymorphism in the Adenosine monophosphate deaminase-1 (AMPD1) gene is related to elite athlete performance. A total of 60 elite athletes, aged 18-35, who were split into two groups-31 sprinters/power athletes and 29 endurance athletes-as well as 20 control/sedentary individuals, willingly participated in the study. The performance levels of the athletes, based on their personal bests (PBs), were rated using the World Athletics (WA) score. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was performed on the genomic DNA that was extracted from the subjects' blood samples. Using linear regression models, the study sought to determine the relationship between the athletes' PB, sex, and sport type and the rs17602729 polymorphism both within and between the groups. The distribution of the GG, GA, and AA genotypes of the rs17602729 polymorphism differed significantly within and between the groups, according to the data (p < 0.05). Nonetheless, no statistically significant variations were observed in the correlation between the athletes' PBs and the rs17602729 polymorphism among the groups (p > 0.05). In conclusion, the G allele of the ADMP1 rs17602729 polymorphism appears to provide a benefit to sprinters and power athletes. Nonetheless, to confirm this hypothesis, additional research with more participants and a multi-genetic analysis approach is required.
