TaqMan real time PCR for the Detection of the Gilbert's Syndrome Markers UGT1A1*28; UGT1A1*36 and UGT1A1*37.

Mol Biol Rep 2021 May 4;48(5):4953-4959. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Gilbert's syndrome is characterized by mild unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. The key of this disease is a diminished activity of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1). TA insertion into the TATA box promoter region of the UGT1A1 gene on chromosome 2 is the genetic basis of Gilbert's syndrome (UGT1A1*28). Read More

UGT1A1, UGT1A6 and UGT1A7 genetic analysis: repercussion for irinotecan pharmacogenetics in the São Miguel Island Population (Azores, Portugal).

Mol Diagn Ther 2009 ;13(4):261-8

Molecular Genetics and Pathology Unit, Hospital of Divino Espirito Santo of Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal.

Background: Glucuronidation reactions, catalyzed by uridine-diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzymes, constitute a detoxification process that adds glucuronic acid to endogenous and exogenous compounds, aiding their excretion. UGT1A proteins have been implicated as risk factors for both the development of cancer and adverse drug effects.

Methods: Here, we assess the genome of 469 individuals from São Miguel Island (Azores, Portugal) in order to determine the frequencies of polymorphisms and haplotypes in UGT1A1, UGT1A6, and UGT1A7, the co-occurrence of reduced enzyme activity UGT1A variants related to irinotecan toxicity, and to calculate the extent of linkage disequilibrium (LD) in the genomic region encompassing these genes.

Validation of rapid polymerase chain reaction-based detection of all length polymorphisms in the UGT 1A1 gene promoter.

Diagn Mol Pathol 2007 Mar;16(1):50-3

UDP glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A1 gene promoter polymorphism can affect the expression level of the UGT 1A1 enzyme. The polymorphism consists of an insertion of a TA nucleotide sequence into a (TA)6TAA sequence in the gene promoter resulting in (TA)7TAA (UGT1A1*28). This results in a reduced UGT 1A1 expression with 70% less glucuronidation capacity for bilirubin and other UGT1A1 substrates. Read More
