Genotype frequencies of 50 polymorphisms for 241 Japanese non-cancer patients

J Epidemiol. 2002 May;12(3):229-36. doi: 10.2188/jea.12.229.


This paper lists the genotype frequencies of 50 polymorphisms of 37 genes (ALDH2, ADRB2, ADRB3, COMT, CD36, CXCR2, CCND1, COX2, CYP2A6, CYP17, CYP19, IGF1, IL-1A, IL-1B, IL-1RN, IL-1R1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, LEP, Le, L-myc, MPO, MTR, MTHFR, MAO-A, NQO1, OGG1, p53, p73, Se, SRD5A2, TGF-B, TNF-A, TNF-B, XPD, and XRCC1) and 6 sets of combined genotype frequencies for 241 non-cancer Japanese outpatients. Though the genotype frequencies of 25 polymorphisms have already been reported in our previous papers, 15 polymorphisms (CD36 A52C, CXCR2 C785T, CCND1 G870A, IGF1 C/T at intron 2 and G2502T, IL-1A 46-bp VNTR, IL-1R1 C-116T, IL-6 Ins/Del 17C, IL-8 A-278T and C74T, IL- 10 T-819C, LEP A-2548G, SRD5A2 2-bp VNTR, XPD Lys751Gln, and XRCC1 Arg399Gln) and six sets of combined genotype frequencies (IL-1B C-31T and IL-1A C-889T, IL-1B C-31T and IL-1RN 86-bp VNTR, IL-1B C-31T and IL-1R1 C-116T, TNF-A G-308A and TNF-B A252G, SRD5A2 Val89Leu and 2-bp VNTR, and XRCC1 Arg399Gln and XPD Lys751Gln) were reported in this paper for the first time for Japanese. Although microarray technology will produce this kind of information in near future, this is the first document that reports the genotype/allele frequencies among Japanese for an archival purpose.
