The association between the rs4987105 of 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5) gene and gestational glucose metabolism in Chinese population.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE:The arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5) pathway has been investigated in diverse chronic inflammatory diseases including metabolic disorders. Recently, the ALOX5 polymorphism rs4987105 was identified to confer susceptibility to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), implicating its role in regulating glucose homeostasis. Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) shares similar pathogenic mechanism with T2DM. Thus, we aimed to evaluate the association between rs4987105 and gestational glucose metabolism in Chinese pregnant women. RESULTS:A total of 380 unrelated Chinese pregnant women including 241 GDM patients and 139 controls were included in this study. The genotypes of rs4987105 were examined by the Agena MassARRAY iPLEX platform, the association between rs4987105 and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) levels at 24-28 gestational weeks was evaluated using different statistical methods. We found that carriers of rs4987105 CT/TT genotypes exhibited significantly lower FPG levels (P?=?0.011). In addition, we observed a significant association between rs4987105 and FPG levels after adjusting confounding variables in the linear regression analysis using dominant genetic model (b?=?-?0.218; P?=?0.01). The present study for the first time reported that the rs4987105 of 5-lipoxygenase (ALOX5) gene was associated with gestational glucose metabolism in Chinese pregnant women.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the most common medical complication of pregnancy. It is associated with maternal and neonatal adverse outcomes. Maintaining adequate blood glucose levels in GDM reduces morbidity for both mother and baby. There is a lack of uniform strategies for screening and diagnosing GDM globally. This review covers the latest update in the diagnosis and management of GDM. The initial treatment of GDM consists of diet and exercise. If these measures fail to achieve gly  ...[more]
