Effects of methionine synthase and methionine synthase reductase polymorphisms on hypertension susceptibility

Kim Y, Kang S;Hong S


Abstract

    Background Polymorphisms of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene are strongly associated with hypertension incidence, although such association is inconsistent among ethnicities studied. However, effects of polymorphisms of other genes related to folate metabolism besides MTHFR on hypertension susceptibility are not well known yet.
    Objective The aim of this study was to elucidate whether methionine synthase (MTR) 2756A>G and methionine synthase reductase (MTRR ) 66A>G polymorphisms might be associated with risks of hypertension susceptibility in the Korean population.
    Methods Genotyping of these two polymorphisms was performed for 232 hypertensive patients and 247 unrelated healthy controls using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism technique.
    Results In the present study, mutations of MTR 2756A>G and MTRR 66A>G polymorphisms were associated with increased and decreased susceptibility to hypertension, respectively. Allele combinations from these two polymorphisms were also related to hypertension prevalence. When polymorphism data were stratified according to clinical components of hypertension, The G allele of MTR 2756A>G polymorphism was significantly associated with an increased risk of hypertension in subjects with BMI < 26.1 kg/m2 (P = 0.004), WC < 87.2 in. (P = 0.021), FBG < 95.5 mg/dL (P = 0.011), triglyceride < 133.5 mg/dL (P = 0.034), and HDL-cholesterol < 52.2 mg/dL (P = 0.036). The G allele of MTRR 66A>G polymorphism was significantly associated with a decreased risk of hypertension in subjects with WC ≥ 87.2 in. (P = 0.029), FBG ≥ 95.5 mg/dL (P = 0.032) and triglyceride ≥ 133.5 mg/dL (P = 0.027).
    Conclusion MTR 2756A>G and MTRR 66A>G polymorphisms related to folate metabolism might be genetic markers for risk of hypertension in the Korean population.
