The correlation between SNPs within the gene of adrenergic receptor and neuropeptide Y and risk of cervical vertigo

J Clin Lab Anal. 2018 Jun;32(5):e22366. doi: 10.1002/jcla.22366. Epub 2017 Dec 2.


Background: The current investigation was aimed to explore the potential associations of SNPs within ADRB2, ADRB1, NPY, and ADRA1A with risk and prognosis of cervical vertigo.

Methods: Altogether 216 patients with cervical vertigo and 204 healthy controls were gathered, and their DNAs were extracted utilizing the whole-blood DNA extraction kit. Besides, the PCR reactions were conducted using the TaqManR single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping assays, and the SNPs were detected on the 7900HT real-time fluorogenic quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) instrument. Finally, the severity of cervical vertigo was classified according to the JOA scoring, and the recovery rate (RR) of cervical vertigo was calculated in light of the formula as: [Formula: see text] RESULTS: The SNPs within ADRA1A [rs1048101 (T>C) and rs3802241 (C>T)], NPY [rs16476 (A>C), rs16148 (T>C), and rs5574 (C>T)], ADRB1 [rs28365031 (A>G)] and ADRB2 [rs2053044 (A>G)] were all significantly associated with regulated risk of cervical vertigo (all P < .05). Haplotypes of ADRA1A [CT and TC] and NPY [CCT and ATT] were also suggested as the susceptible factors of cervical vertigo in comparison with other haplotypes. Furthermore, the SNPs within ADRA1A [rs1048101 (T>C)], NPY [rs16476 (A>C), rs16148 (T>C)], as well as ADRB1 [rs28365031 (A>G)] all appeared to predict the prognosis of cervical vertigo in a relatively accurate way (all P < .05). Ultimately, the haplotypes of ADRA1A (CC) and NPY (CCT) tended to decrease the RR.

Conclusions: The SNPs within ADRB2, ADRB1, NPY, and ADRA1A might act as the diagnostic biomarkers and treatment targets for cervical vertigo.
