Polymorphisms in the GCKR are associated with serum lipid traits, the risk of coronary artery disease and ischemic stroke.

ABSTRACT: The present study was to determine the association of two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the glucokinase regulator gene (GCKR) and serum lipid levels, and the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and ischemic stroke (IS). Genotypes of the GCKR rs1260326 and rs8179206 in 1736 unrelated subjects (CAD, 584; IS, 555; and healthy controls; 597) were determined by the Snapshot technology platform. The genotypic and allelic frequencies of rs1260326 and rs8179206 were not different among the three groups (P > 0.05). The subjects with rs1260326TT genotype had higher serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels in controls, and higher triglyceride (TG) levels in CAD patients than the subjects with CC and CT genotypes after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index, blood pressure, alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoking (P < 0.05). The rs1260326TT genotype was also associated with decreased risk of IS in females (OR = 0.37, 95% CI: 0.18-0.76, P = 0.007). The present study shows that the GCKR rs1260326TT genotype is associated with high LDL-C in controls, high TG levels in CAD patients, and a decreased risk of IS in females.
