PDK2 and ABCG2 genes polymorphisms are correlated with blood glucose levels and uric acid in Tibetan gout patients

Y. C. Ren, Jin, T. B., Sun, X. D., Geng, T. T., Zhang, M. X., Wang, L., Feng, T., Kang, L. L., Chen, C., Ren, Y. C., Jin, T. B., Sun, X. D., Geng, T. T., Zhang, M. X., Wang, L., Feng, T., Kang, L. L., and Chen, C., PDK2 and ABCG2 genes polymorphisms are correlated with blood glucose levels and uric acid in Tibetan gout patients, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

Previous studies have shown that the PDK2 and ABCG2 genes play important roles in many aspects of gout development in European populations. However, a detailed genotype-phenotype analysis was not performed. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential association between variants in these two genes and metabolism-related quantitative phenotypes relevant to gout in a Chinese Tibetan population.

Lack of association between the vitamin D receptor polymorphism rs2228570 and chronic periodontitis in a Han Chinese population

X. Wang, Zhang, T. L., and Chen, D., Lack of association between the vitamin D receptor polymorphism rs2228570 and chronic periodontitis in a Han Chinese population, vol. 14, pp. 12299-12305, 2015.

The vitamin D receptor (VDR) is involved in the immune response and bone metabolism, both of which are implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic periodontitis (CP). In this study, we investigated the association between the VDR single nucleotide polymorphism rs2228570 and CP susceptibility in a Han Chinese population consisting of 440 moderate or severe CP patients and 324 controls. Genomic DNA was extracted from buccal epithelial cells and genotyped using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight-mass spectrometry.

Association analysis of IL-17A and IL-17F polymorphisms in Chinese women with cervical cancer

L. Li, Tian, Y. L., Lv, X. M., Yu, H. F., Xie, Y. Y., Wang, J. D., and Shi, W., Association analysis of IL-17A and IL-17F polymorphisms in Chinese women with cervical cancer, vol. 14, pp. 12178-12183, 2015.

We selected six tagged single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the interleukin 17A (IL-17A) and IL-17F genes, and evaluated the relationship between the six common SNPs and environmental factors in cervical cancer patients. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism was used to detect the IL-17A (rs2275913, rs3748067, and rs3819025) and IL-17F (rs763780, rs9382084, and rs1266828) SNPs. The associations between IL-17A and IL-17F gene polymorphisms and risk of cervical cancer were estimated by conditional logistic regression.

Molecular characterization, expression, polymorphism of NR5A2 and its relationship with litter size in Hu sheep

Y. X. Li, Zhang, J., Qian, Y., Meng, C. H., Wang, H. L., Tao, X. J., Zhong, S., Cao, S. X., and Li, Q. F., Molecular characterization, expression, polymorphism of NR5A2 and its relationship with litter size in Hu sheep, vol. 14, pp. 12765-12775, 2015.

NR5A2 has been implicated in processes as diverse as steroidogenesis, cellular proliferation, ovarian follicular development, ovulation, and fertility in mammals. However, data about the relationship between NR5A2 and prolificacy in mammals are lacking. In the present study, we identified and characterized NR5A2 of Hu sheep, and investigated the correlation between NR5A2 and reproductive performance. The full-length coding region was 1488 bp, and the gene was conserved in mammals.

Single nucleotide polymorphisms of Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 segments and their associations with common carp (Cyprinus carpio) growth traits

H. .Ren, Yu, J., Xu, P., and Tang, Y., Single nucleotide polymorphisms of Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 segments and their associations with common carp (Cyprinus carpio) growth traits, vol. 14, pp. 12848-12854, 2015.

Highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) are crucial for the nutritional health, physiology, and reproduction of vertebrates. The Δ6-desaturase and Elovl5 elongase genes produce essential enzymes in the biosynthetic pathway of HUFAs. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis of genes functionally related to the growth traits of the common carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian) can provide useful information for common carp molecular breeding. In this study, we isolated two Δ6 Fad genes and two Elovl5 genes from the common carp.

Association of CRTC2 gene polymorphisms with growth and meat quality traits of Qinchuan cattle

H. C. Xu, Gui, L. S., Song, N., Zhang, Y. Y., .C.Wang, H., and Zan, L. S., Association of CRTC2 gene polymorphisms with growth and meat quality traits of Qinchuan cattle, vol. 14, pp. 12912-12920, 2015.

Growth and meat quality traits play important roles in the evaluation of cattle productivity and are influenced by genetic and environmental factors. CRTC2 is a recently discovered gene related to obesity that may influence fat deposition. The aim of the current study was to detect polymorphisms of bovine CRTC2 and explore their relationships to growth and meat quality in Qinchuan cattle. Three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs); g.3001 C>T; g.3034 G>A; and g.3467 T>C, were identified from sequencing results of 422 Qinchuan cattle.
