Association of P2X7R gene polymorphisms with systemic lupus erythematosus in a Chinese population

The P2X7 receptor is a ligand-gated cationic channel receptor that is actived by ATP and normally expressed by a variety of immune system cells, including macrophages and lymphocytes. Because it leads to release of IL-1β and cell death by apoptosis or necrosis, it is a potential therapeutic target for a variety of autoimmune inflammatory diseases, such as systemic lupus...

Association of RIP2 gene polymorphisms and systemic lupus erythematosus in a Chinese population

The aim of this study was to investigate the association of receptor interacting protein 2 (RIP2) single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in a Chinese population. A case–control study was performed on the SNPs rs16900617 and rs16900627 in 590 Chinese SLE patients and 660 healthy controls. These SNPs were typed by TaqMan...

Polymorphisms of the TIM-1 and TIM-3 genes are not associated with systemic lupus erythematosus in a Chinese population

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a prototypic systemic autoimmune diseases, which affects multiple organ systems such as kidney. The imbalance of T-helper 1 (Th1)/Th2 cells is critical in the pathogenesis of SLE. The T-cell immunoglobulin mucin (TIM) proteins comprise a family of cell surface molecules expressed on T cells that regulate Th1- and Th2-cell-mediated immunity...

Gene–Gene and Gene-Sex Epistatic Interactions of MiR146a, IRF5, IKZF1, ETS1 and IL21 in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Several confirmed genetic susceptibility loci involved in the interferon signaling and Th17/B cell response for SLE in Chinese Han populations have been described. Available data also indicate that sex-specific genetic differences contribute to SLE susceptibility. The aim of this study was to test for gene–gene/gene-sex epistasis (interactions) in these known lupus susceptibility...
