- Background: DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) 1 is a key enzyme
responsible for the DNA methylation, which occurs often in
CpG islands near regulatory regions of genes and affects the
transcription of specific genes. In this study, we examined possible
genetic association of DNMT1 polymorphisms with HBV clearance
and the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Methods: Five common polymorphic sites were selected,
considering their allele frequencies, haplotype-tagging status and
LDs for genotyping in larger-scale subjects (n = 1,093).
Result: Statistical analysis demonstrated that two intron
polymorphisms, DNMT1 +34542G>C and DNMT1 +38565G>T,
showed significant association with the resolution of HBV infection
in the co-dominant model (OR = 1.30, P = 0.005, Pcorr = 0.03),
and co-dominant/recessive model (OR = 1.34–1.74, P = 0.002–0.004,
Pcorr = 0.01–0.03), respectively.
Conclusion: These results suggest that two intron polymorphisms,
DNMT1 +34542G>C and DNMT1 +38565G>T, might be related with
