Follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) is an important G protein-coupled receptor, which is required for steroidogenesis, follicular development, and female infertility. Here, we report a novel polymorphism in the 3'-UTR that strongly influences ovine FSHR mRNA decay. The partial 3'-UTR sequence of Hu sheep FSHR gene was isolated and characterized, and a polymorphism (c.2327A>G) was identified. Luciferase assay and qRT-PCR showed that c.2327A>G polymorphism in the 3'-UTR exerts a strong regulatory rol...
Patients undergoing cardiac surgery are at high risk for postoperative delirium, which is associated with longer hospital and intensive care lengths of stays, increased morbidity and mortality. Because sleep disturbances are common in delirium, melatonin has been an area of interest in the treatment of delirium. The rs10830963 single nucleotide polymorphism of the melatonin receptor 1B gene can cause pathological dysfunction of this receptor and is associated with delayed morning offset of melatonin. We hyp...

Evaluation of the hypertensive disease (HD) and coronary heart disease (CHD) progress in the ChornobylNPP (ChNPP) accident clean-up workers (ACUW) and persons not exposed to ionizing radiation depending on gen-der and genotype of the phosphodiesterase 4D (PDE4D) gene rs966221 polymorphism.
In adults, the Taq1a polymorphism (rs1800497) near the D2 receptor (DRD2) gene is associated with body mass index and binge eating and is more prevalent among non-Hispanic Blacks (NHB) and Hispanic-Americans (HA) relative to non-Hispanic Whites (NHW). We hypothesize Taq1a polymorphism (rs1800497) risk alleles contribute to paediatric racial/ethnic differences in obesity phenotypes.
Taste is fundamentally important for food selection. While measures of taste sensitivity and preference have been refined over several decades, it remains largely unknown how these measures relate to each other and to food preferences. The objectives of this study were to examine, in healthy adults (age 24.6 ± 0.6 years, n=49), 1) correlations among measures of taste sensitivity, including detection threshold (DT) and suprathreshold sensitivity (ST), and taste preference (PR) within sweet, salt, sour, umam...
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the interleukins (IL) gene may affect the risk of acute pancreatitis. Many epidemiological studies have reported an association between the IL gene and acute pancreatitis risk, but the results remain inconsistent. Given the controversial available data, we carried out a meta-analysis to systematically evaluate and clarify the association between IL gene polymorphisms and AP. A systematic search of studies for this association was obtained from the PubMed, EMBASE...
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism was reported as risk factor for multiple diseases due to its role in conversion of homocysteine to methionine. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to find out the validity of association of C677T polymorphism with epilepsy susceptibility.
Background Cystathionine γ-lyase enzyme, which is encoded by the CTH gene, is responsible for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) production in the endothelium. The CTH 1364 G>T polymorphism may alter the CTH expression and H2S bioavailability, thus leading to atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD). We examined the potential association of the CTH 1364 G>T polymorphism with CAD. Methods The CTH 1364 G>T polymorphism was determined in 178 coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients and 156 non-atheroscler...

Background To analyze the allelic variants of genes of enzymes involved in estrogen metabolism: CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP19 and SULT1A1 using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis of women with histologically confirmed adenomyosis and women without proliferative diseases of pelvic organs was performed. We studied the following polymorphisms: CYP1A1 M1, T264 → C transition in the 3'-noncoding region; CYP1A2*1F, C734 → A t...
The activity of sweet taste receptor (heterodimeric T1R2 and T1R3) can be modulated by sweet regulators. The compound amiloride can inhibit the sweet sensitivity of the human sweet taste receptor. This study describes the species-dependent regulation of the response of sweet taste receptors by this sweet inhibitor. Amiloride inhibited the sweet taste response of humans and mice but not that of squirrel monkeys. Using human/squirrel monkey/mouse chimeric T1R2 and T1R3 receptors as well as the agonist perilla...
The serotonin transporter gene (5-HTT) is involved in the regulation of the neural serotonin. Polymorphisms in the 5-HTT gene have been described in many species to be involved in physiological processes and emotions. A functional polymorphism in the 5´-flanking region of the 5-HTT gene is known from chickens, with a deletion-allele (D), which is associated with an increased 5-HTT expression, in comparison to the wild-type-allele (W). In domestic populations, the majority of hens carry the W-allele. The re...

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is essential to the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, playing a key role in human reproduction. It is a heterodimer comprised of a hormone-specific β-chain (FSH-β) that is associated with an α-chain. It exerts its biological activities by binding to the, FSH receptor (FSHR). The β-subunit, which is encoded by the FSHB gene, is responsible for ensuring binding specificity to the FSHR. There is a promoter polymorphism in this gene, c.-211G>T (rs10835638), upstream of ...
BACKGROUND Growing evidence indicates that a non-coding RNA named miR-34b/c plays crucial roles in carcinogenesis, and its common polymorphism, pri-miR-34b/c rs4938723, also participates in this process and is associated with cancer susceptibility. However, this association was previously undefined and ambiguous. Therefore, we carried out an updated analysis to evaluate this relationship between rs4938723 polymorphism and cancer susceptibility. MATERIAL AND METHODS PubMed, EMbase, Web of Science and Chinese...
