Effect of SNP polymorphisms of EDN1, EDNRA, and EDNRB gene on ischemic stroke.Cell Biochem Biophys. 2014 Sep; 70(1):233-9.CB
The objective of this study is to investigate the association between SNP polymorphisms of endothelin-1 (EDN1) and endothelin receptor (EDNRA and EDNRB) gene and ischemic stroke (IS) in the Chinese Han population in northern. A case-control study was introduced. We genotyped eight SNPs (rs1800541, rs2070699, and rs5370 in EDN1 gene; rs1801708, rs5333, and rs5335 in EDNRA gene; and rs3818416 and rs5351 in EDNRB gene) and calculated their polymorphic distribution in control group, IS group, and the IS subgroups. In male population, EDN1 gene rs2070699 G allele increased the incidence risk to 1.78 times (P = 0.009; OR 1.78; 95 % CI 1.15-2.75) and the risk of morbidity of rs5370 T allele carrying increased to 1.49 times (P = 0.048; OR 1.49; 95 % CI 1.00-2.21). EDNRA gene mutation rs5335 homozygous CC morbidity risk was significantly lower (P = 0.016; OR 0.52; 95 % CI 0.31-0.88). In the female population, the mutant homozygous AA cancer risk was significantly higher than G allele carriers (P = 0.019; OR 2.65; 95 % CI 1.18-6.00) on EDNRA gene rs1801708. In EDN1 gene, T allele of rs5370 and G allele of rs2070699 may be IS incidence risk factors in Northern Han male population. A allele of rs1801708 in EDNRA gene can increase the risk of IS in Northern Han women population.
