The association of Cyp1A1 gene polymorphisms with Cyp1A1 enzymes, p53 protein, and vascular endothelial growth factor levels in pterygium
IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environment
CYP1A1 gene, a carcinogenic metabolisms enzymes encoded gene, was previously found to be detected in pterygium tissue. We aimed to determine the association between CYP1A1m1 (rs4646903) polymorphisms with CYP1A1 enzymes, p53 protein, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) level in patients with inflammatory and non-inflammatory pterygium. DNA isolation was performed from a blood sample of 70 pterygium patients consisting of 35 inflammatory and 35 non-inflammatory pterygia. Rs 4646903 SNP
... gia. Rs 4646903 SNP Genotyping T> C (m1) in the CYP1A1 gene was performed using restriction fragment length polymorphisms-PCR (RFLP-PCR). PCR products confirmed and sent to Macrogen, South Korea for sequencing. Polymorphism results are characterized as wild type (TT), mutant homozygote (TC), and mutant heterozygote (CC). CYP1A1 gene polymorphisms consist of mutant heterozygote (TC), mutant homozygote (CC) and wild type (TT). In both groups, the heterozygote mutant was higher than the wild type and mutant homozygote. The CYP1A1 enzyme level was higher in inflammatory pterygium, P53 protein levels were higher in the noninflammatory group, and VEGF levels were higher in the inflammatory group. CYP1A1 polymorphisms were not associated with CYP1A1 enzyme levels, p53 protein levels, and VEGF in both groups. CYP1A1 gene polymorphism has not been shown to be associated with levels of CYP1A1 enzymes, p53 and VEGF in both pterygium groups.
