Abstract

AIM:

To study the correlation between genetic polymorphism of cytochrome P450IIE1 (CYPIIE1) and fatty liver.

METHODS:

Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were collected in 56 patients with fatty liver, 26 patients without fatty liver and 20 normal controls. Then PCR-RFLP was used to analyze genetic polymorphism of CYPIIE1 in monocytes on the region of Pst I and Rsa I.

RESULTS:

The frequency of homozygotic C1 gene in patients with alcoholic fatty liver (28.6%), obese fatty liver (38.5%), or diabetic fatty liver (33.3%) was significantly lower than that of the corresponding patients without fatty liver (100%, 100% and 80% respectively), while the frequency of C2 genes, including C1/C2 and C2/C2, was significantly higher (71.4%/0%, 61.5%/0%, and 66.7%/20%) (P<0.01). The frequency distribution of the above genes of non-fatty liver patients (100%/0, 100%/0, and 80%/20%) was not significantly different from that of the normal controls (85%/15%) (P>0.05).

CONCLUSION:

The genetic polymorphism of CYPIIE1 on the position of Pst I and Rsa I is related to the susceptibility of fatty liver. Besides, C2 gene may play a key role in the pathogenesis of fatty liver.
