Abstract

BACKGROUND: Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterized by left ventricular enlargement, systolic dysfunction, and heart failure. Both genetic and non-genetic factors have been linked to DCM pathogenesis. Familial DCM (FDCM) accounts for 20%-50% of all DCM cases, highlighting the importance of genetics in pathogenesis. Indeed, more than 40 DCM-associated genes have been identified, including the gene encoding cardiac troponin T type-2 (TNNT2). We examined polymorphisms of the TNNT2 gene in idiopathic DCM (IDCM) patients of Kazak and Han ethnicity compared with healthy Kazak and Han controls.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Peripheral blood samples were collected from 180 patients with IDCM (90 Kazak and 90 Han), and 180 healthy controls (90 Kazak and 90 Han). PCR was used to amplify 15 exons and nearby introns of the TNNT2 gene. The amplified products were sequenced and compared to the standard sequence in PubMed by BLAST and CHROMAS software, to identify mutation sites.

RESULTS: Results from Kazak and Han IDCM patients were complied for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium analysis. There was a significant difference in the genotype distribution (χ2=6.67, P=0.015) and allele frequency (χ2=5.71, P=0.017) between Kazaks with IDCM and Kazak controls of SNP rs3729547. There was also a difference in the genotype distribution (χ2=6.62, P=0.036) and allele frequency (χ2=4.91, P=0.018) between Han with IDCM and Han controls. The TNNT2 gene polymorphism loci rs3729547 may be associated with the IDCM onset in Kazak and Han patients (OR=2.5, 95% CI: 1.233~5.068).

CONCLUSIONS: The TNNT2 polymorphisms might play an important role in susceptibility to DCM in Xinjiang Kazak and Han patients.
