AbstractStudies have evaluated the association between the SNP miRNA-423 rs6505162 C>A and cancer risk in several cancers with contradictory outcomes. It was reported that miRNA-423 rs6505162 C>A polymorphism was associated with the overall survival and the recurrence-free survival of colorectal carcinoma. However, no studies have reported the association between miRNA-423 rs6505162 C>A polymorphism and susceptibility of colorectal carcinoma.In this study, we investigated the association between miRNA-423 polymorphism with risk and clinicopathological parameters of colorectal carcinoma. The polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method was used to genotype 117 colorectal carcinoma patients and 84 healthy controls.Our data indicated the frequencies of rs6505162 genotypes and alleles were significantly different between colorectal carcinoma patients and controls. Compared with CC homozygote, the AC heterozygote exhibited a significantly decreased risk of colorectal carcinoma; and the combination of AC and AA genotype was associated with decreased risk of colorectal carcinoma. The allele distribution of rs6505162 was significantly different between cases and controls. Furthermore, miR-423 rs6505162 C>A genotype showed a significant association with metastasis in patients (P = .022).Our study suggested that miR-423 rs6505162 C>A polymorphism was associated with the susceptibility and metastasis of colorectal carcinoma, and that miR-423 rs6505162 C>A polymorphism might be a potential biomarker for colorectal carcinoma.
