ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to assess whether p53 codon 72 polymorphism is associated with an increased risk of lung cancer (LC) in a South Korean population. We conducted a population-based, large-scale, case-control study including 3939 patients with LC and 1700 controls. P53 codon 72 polymorphism was determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The frequencies of p53 codon 72 polymorphisms (Arg/Arg, Arg/Pro, and Pro/Pro) in LC were 37.0%, 46.2%, and 16.7%, respectively; frequencies in the controls were 43.2%, 45.6%, and 11.2%, respectively (p<0.01). The Arg/Pro and Pro/Pro genotype were significantly associated with increased risk of LC (odds ratio (OR)=1.22, 95% confidence interval (CI)=1.06-1.14 and OR=1.83, 95% CI=1.48-2.26, respectively) compared with the Arg/Arg genotype. Risk was compared in different subgroups. The OR of Pro/Pro genotype was significantly higher in small cell lung cancer (SCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SQC) than in adenocarcinoma (ADC). Higher OR of Pro/Pro genotype was also seen among males. However, relationships between gender, age, smoking, and genotypes were not found. P53 codon 72 polymorphism was associated with an increased risk of LC in this Korean population; the association was especially noteworthy in SQC, SCC, and males.

    ABSTRACT: TP53 represents a suitable candidate for a colorectal cancer susceptibility locus. The polymorphism in the p53 72nd codon involves a proline to arginine substitution, leading to changes in gene transcription activity, interaction with other proteins and modulation of apoptosis. Studies evaluating the association between this polymorphism and colorectal cancer (CRC) have shown inconsistent results, and none have evaluated the mRNA status of TP53. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the association between this SNP expression at the mRNA level in CRC samples and patient clinicopathological variables and prognosis, p53 protein expression and TP53 mutation. This is the first report to describe the mRNA expression of p53 codon 72 alleles in CRC. We evaluated 101 non-related patients with CRC treated at the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center in Brazil. RNA was isolated from frozen tumor tissues using a trizol-based protocol. The polymorphism was detected using RT-PCR followed by Sanger sequencing. Associations were analyzed using Pearson's Chi-square or Fisher's exact tests, logistic regression and Cox. This polymorphism was significantly associated with clinicopathological variables related to increased tumor aggressiveness. The expression of Arg72 (OR, 3.83; CI 1.02-14.35; P=0.046) and the TNM stage (OR, 7.15; CI 1.45-35.29; P=0.016) were found to be independent predictors for recurrence. These data suggest that the mRNA expression of the Pro72 allele is associated with less favorable tumor features. The allele frequency of the p53 Pro72 was 0.26. The analysis of mRNA is important to determine the specific contribution of the allele expressed. These results suggest that this polymorphism may play a role in CRC.

    ABSTRACT: The previous published data on the association between TP53 codon 72, intron 6, and intron 3 16 bp polymorphisms and lung cancer risk remained controversial. This meta-analysis of literatures was performed to derive a more precise estimation of the relationship. 38 publications with 51 studies were selected for this meta-analysis, including 17,337 cases and 16,127 controls for TP53 codon 72 (from 43 studies), 2,201 cases and 2,399 controls for TP53 intron 6 (from four studies), and 4,322 cases and 4,558 controls for TP53 intron 3 16 bp (from four studies). When all the eligible studies were pooled into the meta-analysis of codon 72 polymorphism, there was significant association between lung cancer risk and codon 72 polymorphism in any genetic model (dominant model: OR = 1.13, 95 % CI 1.05-1.21; recessive model: OR = 1.14, 95 % CI 1.02-1.27; additive model: OR = 1.19, 95 % CI 1.05-1.33). In the subgroup analysis by ethnicity, histological type, source of control, and smoking status, significantly increased risks were observed in subgroups such as Asians, Caucasians, lung squamous cell carcinoma patients for Asians, population-based study, hospital-based study, non-smokers, and smokers. When all the eligible studies were pooled into the meta-analysis of intron 6 polymorphism, there was significant association between lung cancer risk and intron 6 polymorphism in dominant model (OR = 1.27, 95 % CI 1.11-1.44). When all the eligible studies were pooled into the meta-analysis of intron 3 16 bp polymorphism, there was significant association between lung cancer risk and intron 3 16 bp polymorphism in dominant model (OR = 1.12, 95 % CI 1.02-1.23) and additive model (OR = 1.41, 95 % CI 1.04-1.90). Additionally, when one study was deleted in the sensitive analysis, the results of TP53 intron 3 16 bp duplication polymorphism were changed in the dominant model (OR = 1.11, 95 % CI 0.87-1.42) and additive model (OR = 1.01, 95 % CI 0.65-1.56). In summary, this meta-analysis indicates that codon 72 and intron 6 polymorphisms show an increased lung cancer risk. A study with the larger sample size is needed to further evaluated gene-environment interaction on TP53 codon 72, intron 6, and intron 3 16 bp polymorphisms and lung cancer risk.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to determine whether p53 codon 47 and codon 72 polymorphisms are associated with increased risk of lung cancer in Bangladeshi population. We carried out a case-control study and examined the genotype distribution Pro47Ser and Arg72Pro single-nucleotide polymorphisms along with tobacco smoking in the predisposition of lung cancer by using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) approach. The study included 106 lung cancer patients and 116 control subjects from Bangladesh. Lung cancer risk was estimated as odds ratio (OR) and 95 % confidence interval (CI) using conditional logistic regression models adjusting for age, sex, and smoking. No significant association was found between Pro47Ser SNP and lung cancer. The frequencies of p53 codon 72 polymorphisms (Arg/Arg, Arg/Pro, and Pro/Pro) in lung cancer were 25.5, 37.7, and 36.8 %, respectively; frequencies in the controls were 53.4, 30.2, and 16.4 %, respectively (p < 0.01). The Arg/Pro and Pro/Pro genotype were significantly associated with increased risk of lung cancer (OR = 2.51, 95 % CI = 1.38–4.82 and OR = 4.62, 95 % CI = 2.31–9.52, respectively) compared with the Arg/Arg genotype. The combined frequency of Arg/pro and Pro/Pro genotype was also found to be associated with elevated risk of lung cancer (OR = 3.36, 95 % CI = 1.90–5.94, p < 0.01). However, no significant relationship was found between age, sex, and histological subtypes of lung cancer with p53 codon 72 genotype distributions. When classified by smoking status, the effects of Arg72Pro polymorphism on lung cancer risk was only found to be significant (χ 2 = 33.94, p = 0.00000004) in case of heavy smokers (40 packs per year or more). We conclude that not Pro47Ser SNP but Arg72Pro SNP is involved in susceptibility to developing lung cancer, at least in Bangladeshi population.
