BACKGROUND: Allowing for the significance of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in reflecting disease risk, this investigation attempted to uncover whether SNPs situated in lncRNA GAS5/miR-21/mTOR axis were associated with risk and prognosis of coronary heart disease (CHD) among a Chinese Han population.
METHODS: Altogether 436 patients with CHD were recruited as cases, and meanwhile, 471 healthy volunteers were included into the control group. Besides, SNPs of GAS5/MIR-21/mTOR axis were genotyped utilizing mass spectrometry. Chi-square test was applied to figure out SNPs that were strongly associated with CHD risk and prognosis, and combined effects of SNPs and environmental parameters on CHD risk were evaluated through multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) model.
RESULTS: Single nucleotide polymorphisms of GAS5 (ie, rs2067079 and rs6790), MIR-21 (ie, rs1292037), and mTOR (rs2295080, rs2536, and rs1034528) were associated with susceptibility to CHD, and also Gensini score change of patients with CHD (P < .05). MDR results further demonstrated that rs2067079 and rs2536 were strongly interactive in elevating CHD risk (P < .05), while smoking, rs6790 and rs2295080 showed powerful reciprocity in predicting Gensini score change of patients with CHD (P < .05).
CONCLUSION: Single nucleotide polymorphisms of lncRNA GAS5/miR-21/mTOR axis might interact with smoking to regulate CHD risk, which was conducive to diagnosis and prognostic anticipation of CHD.
