Epigenetic Factors of Serum Uric Acid Level and Related Gene Polymorphisms in Shenyang, China

Background. The purpose of this study was to explore the influencing factors of serum uric acid (SUA) level and related gene polymorphisms in the healthy population. Methods. A total of 346 healthy individuals screened from different areas in Shenyang City and 195 patients with high SUA levels were included. Results. The levels of TC (total cholesterol), HDL-C (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), LDL-C (lowdensity lipoprotein cholesterol), TG (triglycerides), GLU (blood glucose) ALT (alanine aminotransferase), TBA (total bile acid), TBIL (total bilirubin), CR (creatinine) and CYSC (Cystatin C) were statistically different between the healthy and hyperuricemia population (P<0.05). However, there was no statistical difference in the UA level between the two groups (P>0.05). After adjusting for UA, TC, HDL-C, LDL-C, GLU, TBIL and CYSC, the additive and recessive models of rs2231142 were statistically significant in females (P<0.05). For males, haplotypes of A-C-A-A-G-G, A-CG- C-G-G and A-T-G-A-A-G had significant difference between the healthy and hyperuricemia population (P<0.05). For females, the haplotypes of A-C-G-C-G-G and A-T-A-CA- T had significant differences (P<0.05). Conclusion. The distributions of SLC2A9 (solute carrier family 2 and facilitated glucose transporter member 9), ABCG2 (ATP-binding cassette G2), GCKR (glucokinase regulatory protein), KCNQ1, IGFIR (Insulin-like growth factor-I receptor) and VEGFR (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor) were balanced in the population in Shenyang City. The haplotypes of A-C-A-A-G-G, A-CG- C-G-G and A-T-G-A-A-G were the influencing factors of high SUA in the population in Shenyang City.
