Purpose: We investigate the relationship of Zinc transporter gene ZIP (SLC39A1) and ZnT (SLC30A2)
polymorphism in Taiwanese patients with BPH.
Materials and Methods: A total 45 BPH and 24 CVD patients and 48 healthy control subjects were enrolled. We analyzed the single nucleotide polymorphisms of SLC39A1 and SLC30A2 gene using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based restriction analysis.
Results: There was significant differences for SLC30A2 gene polymorphism (rs11247851) by Chi-Square test between in control and BPH group (p<0.05, Chi-Square value was 6.338) and control and CVD group (p<0.05, Chi-Square value was 6.887). The result displays that T residues have a protection for BPH and CVD diseases, SLC30A2 gene polymorphism (rs11247851) was significant for regulate transport Zinc in BPH and CVD, but the protective effect was better in BPH than CVD disease.
gene polymorphism (rs11247851) was significant for regulating transport Zinc in BPH and CVD and T residues has a protection in BPH and CVD diseases but the protective effect was better in BPH than CVD disease. The cause maybe was relational concentrations of Zinc, prostate contain more Zn than cardiovascular tissue, and the transport zinc effect was larger by SLC30A2
gene polymorphism (rs11247851) in BPH than CVD.
