Association analysis of alcohol metabolizing enzymes ADH1B, ADH7, CYP2E1 gene polymorphism with risk for coronary atherosclerosis

Association analysis of alcohol metabolizing enzymes ADH1B, ADH7, CYP2E1 gene polymorphism with... The allele and genotype distribution of two alcohol dehydrogenase genes ADH1B (exon 3 polymorphism A/G (47His)), ADH7 (intron 5 polymorphism G/C) and cytochrome P450 2E1 gene (CYP2E1; 5′-flanking region G/C and intron 6 T/A polymorphisms) were examined in Russian (Tomsk, n = 125) healthy population and in coronary atherosclerosis patients (CA, n = 92). The genotype frequencies followed the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and the alleles were in linkage equilibrium or gametic equilibrium in the control sample. Only two CYP2E1 gene polymorphisms were in linkage disequilibrium. The frequencies of the derived alleles at ADH1B * G (+MslI) allele, CYP2E1 * C2 (+PstI) allele and CYP2E1 * C (-DraI) allele were 8.48 ± 1.86, 1.20 ± 0.69, and 10.00 ± 1.90%, respectively. The ADH7 gene polymorphism showed a high level of heterozygosity; the frequency of the ADH7 * C (-StyI) allele was 44.58 ± 3.21%. A significantly higher frequency of CYP2E1 PstI C2 allele has been revealed in the CA group (P = 0.043; OR = 4.23; 95% CI 1.03–20.01). The tendency to significant effect of A1A2 genotype in ADH1B MslI polymorphism was observed for systolic blood pressure in the control group (P = 0.068). The statistically significant two-way interaction effects of ADH7 StyI and CYP2E1 DraI on diastolic blood pressure (P = 0.029) and on the serum high density lipoprotein level (P = 0.042) were also revealed. Association of A1A2 genotype in ADH1B MslI polymorphism with reduced amount in a serum of a very low density lipoprotein level (P = 0.045) have also been shown. This may result from multifunctional activity of alcohol metabolizing enzymes and their involvement in many metabolic and free radical reactions in the body.
