Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the distributional characteristics of acylation stimulating protein (ASP) gene polymorphism and the association with serum lipid level of Chinese Han and Uighur residents in Xinjiang.

METHOD:

Genotypes of the ASP gene 301T > C polymorphism was detected by polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) in 527 Uighur and 407 Han residents.

RESULTS:

The frequencies of TT, TC and CC genotype of ASP gene 301T > C were 74.9%, 21.3% and 3.6% in Han group and 47.6, 40.2% and 12.1% in Uighur group (P < 0.05). Serum triglyceride level was significantly higher in C allele carrier (TC + CC genotype) than in TT genotype carrier of both Han and Uighur individuals. After adjusting for age, gender, smoking, drinking, BMI and serum total cholesterol, logistic regression analyses revealed that individuals carrying C allele (TC + CC genotype) faced an increased risk of increased serum triglyceride level than individuals carrying TT genotype in both Han and Uighur individuals (OR = 3.31, 95%CI: 1.31 - 8.36 in Uighur group; OR = 3.98, 95%CI: 1.81 - 8.74 in Han group).

CONCLUSION:

There is a significant difference on mutational frequencies of the ASP gene 301T > C polymorphism between Uighur and Han residents in Xinjiang and C allele carriers face an increased risk for hypertriglyceridemia in both Uighur and Han residents in Xinjiang.
