Genome-wide association studies have recently identified a number of non-major histocompatibility complex regions associated with psoriatic arthritis. However, data on Chinese patients with psoriatic arthritis and the differences between psoriatic arthritis and cutaneous psoriasis are limited. This study genotyped 12 single nucleotide polymorphisms in 379 patients with psoriatic arthritis, 376 with cutaneous psoriasis, and 760 healthy controls using Sequenom's Mass ARRAY system. The aim of the study was to expand the database for psoriatic arthritis and cutaneous psoriasis, and develop a genetic prediction system for the early diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis in the Chinese population. One variant in NFKBIA, rs12883343, had a significantly different association with psoriatic arthritis than with cutaneous psoriasis (p = 4.93×10-10, odds ratio 2.371). This suggests that there are differences in the pathogenesis of psoriatic arthritis and cutaneous psoriasis.

The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.
A single nucleotide variation in a genetic sequence that occurs at appreciable frequency in the population.
Variation in a population's DNA sequence that is detected by determining alterations in the conformation of denatured DNA fragments. Denatured DNA fragments are allowed to renature under conditions that prevent the formation of double-stranded DNA and allow secondary structure to form in single stranded fragments. These fragments are then run through polyacrylamide gels to detect variations in the secondary structure that is manifested as an alteration in migration through the gels.
Biochemical identification of mutational changes in a nucleotide sequence.
An adrenergic neuron-blocking drug similar in effects to GUANETHIDINE. It is also noteworthy in being a substrate for a polymorphic cytochrome P-450 enzyme. Persons with certain isoforms of this enzyme are unable to properly metabolize this and many other clinically important drugs. They are commonly referred to as having a debrisoquin 4-hydroxylase polymorphism.
