Promoter methylation cooperates with SNPs to modulate RAGE transcription and alter UC risk.

ABSTRACT: Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located in the promoter region of the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) gene have been linked to the activity of RAGE. However, contrary to our expectation, we previously detected no correlation between SNPs within the RAGE promoter and ulcerative colitis (UC) risk in a case-control study. Here, we investigated the methylation of the RAGE promoter and analyzed the collective contribution of methylation and SNPs to UC risk. We found that RAGE promoter hypomethylation was more common in UC patients compared to controls (70% vs. 30%, respectively), as determined via bisulfite sequencing PCR (BSP) and methylation-specific PCR (MSP). Furthermore, we investigated the cooperativity of promoter methylation and SNPs and found that either of two SNPs (rs1800624 or rs1800625) and promoter methylation jointly contributed to UC risk (30 UC patients vs. 30 controls, P?
