PTPN22 Trp(620) explains the association of chromosome 1p13 with type 1 diabetes and shows a statistical interaction with HLA class II genotypes.
1730 - 1737.
OBJECTIVE-The disease association of the common 1858C>T Arg620Trp (rs2476601) nonsynonymous single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of protein tyrosine phosphatase; nonreceptor type 22 (PTPN22) on chromosome 1p13 has been confirmed in type 1 diabetes and also in other autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and Graves' disease. Some studies have reported additional associated SNPs independent of rs2476601/Trp(620), suggesting that it may not be the sole causal variant in the region and that the relative risk of rs2476601/Trp(620) is greater in lower risk by HLA class II genotypes than in the highest risk class II risk category.RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-We resequenced PTPN22 and used these and other data to provide > 150 SNPs to evaluate the association of the PTPN22 gene and its flanking chromosome region with type 1 diabetes in a minimum of 2,000 case subjects and 2,400 control subjects.RESULTS-Due to linkage disequilibrium, we were unable to distinguish between rs2476601/Trp(620) (P = 2.11 X 10(-87)) and rs6679677 (P = 3.21 X 10(-17)), an intergenic SNP between the genes putative homeodomain transcription factor I and round spermatid basic protein 1. None of the previously reported disease-associated SNPs proved to be independent of rs2476601/Trp(620) We did not detect any interaction with age at diagnosis or sex. However, we found that rs2476601/Trp(620) has a higher relative risk in type 1 diabetic case subjects carrying lower risk HLA class II genotypes than in those carrying higher risk ones (P = 1.36 X 10(-4) in a test of interaction).CONCLUSIONS-In our datasets, there was no evidence for allelic heterogeneity at the PTPN22 locus in type 1 diabetes, indicating that the SNP rs247660 1/Trp(620) remains the best candidate in this chromosome region in European populations. The heterogeneity of rs2476601/Trp(620) disease risk by HLA class II genotype is consistent with previous studies, and the joint effect of the two loci is still greater in the high-risk group.
