Association of rs7903146, rs12255372, and rs290487 polymorphisms in TCF7L2 gene with type 2 diabetes in an Iranian Kurdish ethnic group.

Clin Lab 2014 ;60(8):1269-76

Background: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within the transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) gene are well known risk variants for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The association between TCF7L2 SNPs and T2DM has been investigated in several studies, but the results are controversial. In this study, we investigated whether the rs7903146, rs12255372, and rs290487 polymorphisms of TCF7L2 are associated with T2DM per se or metabolic traits related to this disease in a Kurdish ethnic group of Iran.

Methods: In all, 173 patients with T2DM and 173 normoglycemic subjects were included in this study. All subjects were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP). Genotypic and allelic frequencies were then analyzed in each group. Serum lipids, fasting glucose, fasting serum insulin, HOMA-IR, and HbA1c levels were determined by conventional methods.

Results: T-allele and genotype frequencies of rs7903146, rs12255372, and rs290487 were significantly different between T2DM and control subjects. The CT genotype (OR = 1.98, p = 0.008), TT genotype (OR = 3.54, p = 0.024), and the dominant model (OR = 2.16, p = 0.002) of rs7903146 were associated with T2DM. The GT genotype (OR = 2.23, p = 0.005), TT genotype (OR = 4.25, p = 0.046), and the dominant model (OR = 2.2, p = 0.001) of rs12255372 gave a higher risk for T2DM. The carriers of CT genotype of rs290487 showed a significantly increased risk for T2DM (OR = 2.24, p = 0.003). Similarly, the dominant model of this SNP was found to be significantly associated with T2DM (OR = 2.25, p = 0.002). The control subjects carrying the T-allele of rs7903146 had higher levels of total cholesterol (CC; 4.52 +/- 1.03 vs. CT + TT; 5.00 +/- 1.2 mmol/L, p = 0.009) than those with CC genotype. Normoglycemic subjects carrying GT + TT genotypes of rs12255372 had a significantly higher WHR (GG; 0.90 +/- 0.059 vs. GT + TT; 0.93 +/- 0.07, p = 0.038) as compared with those with the GG genotype.

Conclusions: The T-allele of rs12255372, rs7903146, and rs290487 polymorphisms of TCF7L2 confer susceptibility to T2DM in the Kurdish population of Iran.

Objective: To investigate the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) at locus rs7903146, rs290487, rsl1196205, rs12255372 and genetic susceptibility in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

Methods: As a case- control study, 100 pregnant women with GDM and 100 healthy pregnant women in the Maternal and Children Health Hospital of Jiangxi Province were recruited from January 2010 to July 2013. Clinical parameters, including body mass index (BMI), fasting insulin (FINS), fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR) were measured after admission to hospital.

Objective: The global burden of diabetes mellitus will impact strongly American countries in the coming decades. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a multifactorial disease and the basis for its genetic susceptibility remains not fully understood. Different population studies have demonstrated that variants of the TCF7L2 gene are strongly associated with an increased risk of T2DM. Read More

One thousand thirty-eight normal glucose-tolerant and 1031 type 2 diabetic subjects selected from the Chennai Urban Rural Epidemiology Study were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay to investigate the association of rs12255372(G/T) and rs7903146(C/T) polymorphisms of the transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) gene with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Asian Indians. The frequency of the "T" allele of both rs12255372(G/T) and rs7903146(C/T) polymorphisms was significantly higher in diabetic subjects (23% and 33%) compared to that in normal glucose-tolerant subjects (19% and 28%; P = .001 and P = .

Aims: We aimed to replicate the association of the rs290487 (IVS3C/T) and rs7903146 (IVS3C/T) polymorphisms of transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Han Chinese people in Henan province, China.

Methods: In all, 1,842 patients with T2DM and 7,777 normal glucose-tolerant controls underwent genotyping for the T2DM-associated variants rs7903146 (IVS3C/T) and rs290487 (IVS3C/T). W performed a meta-analysis of the association of the risk alleles of rs7903146 (IVS3C/T) and rs290487 (IVS3C/T) in TCF7L2 and T2DM in Han Chinese by combining previous studies with the present study.
