ABSTRACT To screen for tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (tagSNP) in the major alcohol metabolizing enzymes: ADH1B, ALDH2, and CYP2E1, and to evaluate the association between these tagSNPs and colorectal cancer (CRC) in a southwestern Chinese population.
A hospital-based case-control study of 440 CRC patients and 800 cancer-free controls was conducted. Personal information was collected by a Semi-Quantitative Food Frequency Questionnaire. The tagSNPs were screened in the HapMap with Haploview by setting the minor allele frequency at 0.03 with the highest score of r(2) form each block. Genotypes were identified by using the SNPLex System. Both crude and adjusted odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were used to evaluate the risk of each SNP.
Sixteen tagSNPs were selected, and 13 were successfully genotyped. A novel CYP2E1 locus rs1329149 and a known ALDH2 locus rs671 were found to be significantly associated with CRC risk. The adjusted OR was 1.86 (95% CI, 1.12-3.09) for the rs671 A/A genotype and 4.04 for the rs1329149 T/T genotype (95% CI, 2.44-6.70), compared with their common homozygous genotypes. Interaction was found between alcohol consumption and gene polymorphisms on CRC, the adjusted OR was 7.17 (95% CI, 2.01-25.53) for drinking habits combined with rs671 A/A or rs1329149 T/T genotype.
The results of this study suggest that rs671 A/A and the first reported locus rs1329149 T/T genotypes increase the susceptibility to CRC, and gene-environmental interaction between the two loci and alcohol use existed for CRC in Southwestern Chinese. Larger studies are warranted to verify our findings.

    ABSTRACT: Background Epidemiological studies have suggested that variants on adiponectin (ADIPOQ) and its receptor ADIPOR1 (adiponectin receptor 1) are associated with colorectal cancer (CRC) risk; however, the results were inconclusive. The aim of the study was to evaluate the associations between the variants on ADIPOQ and ADIPOR1 and the CRC risk with a hospital-based case-control study in the Chinese population along with meta-analysis of available epidemiological studies.Methods With a hospital-based case-control study of 341 cases and 727 controls, the associations between the common variants on ADIPOQ (rs266729, rs822395, rs2241766 and rs1501299) and ADIPOR1 (rs1342387 and rs12733285) and CRC susceptibility were evaluated. Meta-analysis of the published epidemiological studies was performed to investigate the associations between the variants and CRC risk.ResultsFor the population study, we found that variant rs1342387 of ADIPOR1 was associated with a reduced risk for CRC [adjusted odds ratio (OR)¿=¿0.74, 95% confidential intervals (95% CI)¿=¿0.57-0.97; CT/TT vs. CC]. The meta-analysis also suggested a significant association for rs1342387 and CRC risk; the pooled OR was 0.79 (95% CI¿=¿0.66-0.95) for the CT/TT carriers compared to CC homozygotes under the random-effects model (Q¿=¿8.06, df¿=¿4, P¿=¿0.089; I2¿=¿50.4%). The case-control study found no significant association for variants rs266729, rs822395, rs2241766, and rs1501299 on ADIPOQ or variant rs12733285 on ADIPOR1 and CRC susceptibility, which were consistent with results from the meta-analysis studies.Conclusions These data suggested that variant rs1342387 on ADIPOR1 may be a novel CRC susceptibility factor.

    ABSTRACT: Studies investigating the association between genetic polymorphism of aldehyde dehydrogenases-2 (ALDH-2) Glu487Lys and colorectal cancer (CRC) risk have reported conflicting results. Given this uncertainty, we carried out a critical analysis of published case-control studies to derive a more precise estimation of this relationship. Published literature from PubMed, EMBASE and China Knowledge Resource Integrated Database were retrieved, and the literature search was updated in June 2014. Eleven studies comprising 6965 subjects were selected (2300 cases and 4665 controls). Overall, our study showed no statistical significance for CRC risk associated with any of the genetic models of ALDH-2 Glu487Lys polymorphism. When studies were stratified for control source, a decreased risk of CRC for participants with Lys/Lys was observed in population based case-control studies [Lys/Lys vs. (Glu/Lys + Glu/Glu): odds ratio (OR) = 0.57, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.38–0.87]. Furthermore, we also confirmed the significant correlation between Glu487Lys polymorphism and the influence on the risk of rectal cancer in males [Glu/Glu vs. (Glu/Lys + Lys/Lys): OR = 1.52, 95%CI = 1.10–2.08]. The combined effects of the two gene polymorphisms [ALDH-2 and alcohol dehydrogenase 1B (ADH-1B)] were also studied. Compared with subjects having ALDH-2 Lys+ with ADH-1B His/His, ORs and 95%CIs for those with ALDH-2 Glu/Glu and ADH-1B His/His was 3.42(0.57–20.38). Similar trends were observed for the other two types of comparisons. Our study supports that ALDH-2 Glu487Lys polymorphism is associated with significant reduced risks of CRC in population-based samples, and of rectal cancer in males.

    ABSTRACT: The association of the aldehyde dehydrogenases-2 (ALDH2) Glu504Lys polymorphism (also named Glu487Lys, or rs671) and cancers has been investigated. This meta-analysis aims to comprehensively assess the influence of this polymorphism on the overall cancer risk. Eligible publications were retrieved according to inclusion/exclusion criteria and the data were analyzed using the Review Manager software (V5.2). A meta-analysis based on 51 case-control studies consisting of 16774 cases and 32060 controls was performed to evaluate the association between the ALDH2 Glu504Lys polymorphism and cancer risk. The comparison of genotypes Lys+ (Lys/Lys and Lys/Glu) with Glu/Glu yielded a significant 20% increased cancer risk (OR = 1.20, 95%CI: 1.03-1.39, P = 0.02, I2 = 92%). Subgroup analysis by cancer type indicated a significantly increased UADT cancer risk (OR = 1.39, 95%CI: 1.11-1.73, P = 0.004, I2 = 94%) in individuals with the Lys+ genotypes. Subgroup analysis by country indicated that individuals from Japan with the Lys+ genotypes had a significant 38% increased cancer risk (OR = 1.38, 95%CI: 1.12-1.71, P = 0.003, I2 = 93%). Our results indicated that the ALDH2 Glu504Lys polymorphism is a susceptible loci associated with overall cancers, especially esophageal cancer and among Japanese population.
