Abstract

Background: The association of DLG5 R30Q with IBD has been replicated in several populations, but is not statistically significant in others. We studied the incidence of DLG5 alleles in a population of IBD patients from Pennsylvania.

Methods: DLG5 R30Q rs1248696 and G1066G rs1248634 were analyzed with PCR-based RFLP methods in a total of 521 subjects, that included 105 individuals with IBD and 139 without IBD from a familial IBD registry, 107 with sporadic IBD, and 170 unrelated healthy controls. R30Q was further analyzed with SNPlex™ Genotyping System in 473 samples.

Results: RFLP genotyping data showed that, DLG5 R30Q was significantly associated with IBD overall p=0.006, and separately with CD p=0.009 and UC p=0.024. The association of R30Q with IBD was entirely due to a male-associated effect male vs female p=0.015 vs 0.241 IBD, p=0.024 vs 0.190 CD, and p=0.019 vs 0.575 UC. The frequency of the A allele carriage was elevated in both affected and unaffected members in the familial IBD cohort compared to healthy controls p=0.037. In the family pedigrees, we observed differences in the expression of IBD in individuals carrying the A allele between families.

Conclusions: In the studied population, DLG5 R30Q was associated with all forms of IBD. An elevated presence of the R30Q variant was observed in all members of a familial IBD registry. This association of the R30Q variant with IBD was male-specific.
