The role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors α polymorphisms in Graves' disease and orbitopathy

Janusz Przemyslaw , Pawlak-Adamska Edyta , Bolanowski Marek , Daroszewski Jacek

Understanding the genetic etiology of Graves’ disease (GD) and Graves’ orbitopathy (GO) is recognized as an urgent priority. Since peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors α (PPARα) exhibit anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activity, and are required for the control of the adipose inflammation process their role in the GD and GO pathogenesis has been proposed. Abnormal expression and/or function of PPARα could suppress the inflammatory response...

The clinical presentation of Graves’ disease (GD) depends on the combination of environmental and genetic factors. The CTLA-4 and CD28, ICOS genes encoding negative and positive regulator of the T-lymphocyte immune response, are candidate genes for conferring susceptibility to thyroid autoimmunity.Polymorphisms in genes: CTLA-4: g.319C>T (rs5742909), c.49A>G (rs231775), g.*642AT(8_33), CT60 (g.*6230G>A, rs3087243), Jo31...
