Abstract

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to explore the associations of ghrelin gene polymorphisms at rs26312, rs26802 and rs27647 with cerebral infarction.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 200 cerebral infarction patients in our hospital were enrolled as the disease group, while 200 healthy people were enrolled as the control group. Peripheral venous blood was collected from both groups, and the ghrelin gene polymorphisms at rs26312, rs26802, and rs27647 in nucleated cells were detected through sequencing.

RESULTS: The genotype distribution at ghrelin gene loci rs26802 and rs27647 in the disease group was significantly different from that in the control group. The distribution of recessive model at ghrelin gene locus rs26802 in the disease group was different from that in the control group, in which the TG+GG frequency was evidently higher in the disease group. The AA genotype at ghrelin gene locus rs26312 was remarkably associated with the ghrelin gene expression level, and the expression level of ghrelin gene in the disease group was remarkably lower than that in the control group. The genotype at ghrelin gene locus rs26312 was associated with activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), and APTT was significantly shorter in patients with GG genotype. The genotype at ghrelin gene locus rs26802 was associated with D-dimer, and the D-dimer level was significantly lower in patients with TG genotype. The genotype at ghrelin gene locus rs27647 was associated with prothrombin time (PT), and PT was obviously shorter in patients with TT genotype.

CONCLUSIONS: The ghrelin gene polymorphisms are remarkably associated with the occurrence of cerebral infarction.
