Associations between genetic variants in the IRGM gene and inflammatory bowel diseases in the Korean population

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
C M MoonJae Hee Cheon


Recent European ancestry genome-wide association studies have identified genetic variants of IRGM as significant susceptibility loci for Crohn's disease (CD). Therefore, we investigated whether genetic variants of IRGM confer genetic susceptibility to CD or ulcerative colitis (UC) and evaluated the genotype-phenotype associations in the Korean population. This study included 510 inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients (253 patients with CD and 257 with UC) and 520 healthy controls in Koreans. Initially, we performed direct sequencing analysis to identify unique IRGM single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Three selected haplotype-tagging SNPs and one risk locus (rs72553867, rs10065172, rs4958847, and rs12654043) within the IRGM were then geno-typed in patients and controls. IRGM SNP rs10065172 was significantly associated with CD susceptibility in terms of allelic frequency (P = 0.004; odds ratio [OR] = 1.42) and genotype frequency (dominant model, P = 0.008; OR = 1.62). We also found a relationship between SNP rs72553867 and CD susceptibility in the analysis of allelic frequency (P = 0.0117; OR = 0.67) and genotype frequency (dominant model, P = 0.002; OR = 0.55). In addition, we observed that the association of CD with rs10...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
