    • The interferon regulatory factor 5 (IRF5) gene encodes a transcriptionfactor that plays an important role in the innate as well asin the cell-mediated immune responses. The IRF5 gene has beenshown to be associated with systemic lupus erythematosus andrheumatoid arthritis. We studied whether the IRF5 gene is alsoassociated with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn disease(CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Twelve polymorphisms in theIRF5 gene were genotyped in a cohort of 1007 IBD patients (748CD and 241 UC) and 241 controls from Wallonia, Belgium. Thesame polymorphisms were genotyped in a confirmatory cohort of311 controls and 687 IBD patients (488 CD and 192 UC) from Leuven,Belgium. A strong signal of association (p = 1.9 x 10–5,OR: 1.81 (1.37-2.39)) with IBD was observed for a 5bp indel(CGGGG) polymorphism in the promoter region of the IRF5 gene.The association was detectable (p = 6.8 x 10–4) also inCD patients, and was particularly strong among the UC patients(p = 5.3 x 10–8, OR 2.42 (1.76 -3.34)). The associationof the CGGGG indel was confirmed in the second cohort (p = 3.2x 10–5, OR 1.59 (1.28 - 1.98)). The insertion of one CGGGGunit is predicted to create an additional binding site for thetranscription factor SP1. Using an electrophoretic mobilityshift assay we show allele-specific differences in protein bindingto this repetitive DNA-stretch, which suggest a potential functionrole for the CGGGG indel.

  • Allelic imbalance in gene expression as a guide to cis-acting regulatory single nucleotide polymorphisms in cancer cells

    • Using the relative expression levels of two SNP alleles of a gene in the same sample is an effective approach for identifying cis-acting regulatory SNPs (rSNPs). In the current study, we established a process for systematic screening for cis-acting rSNPs using experimental detection of AI as an initial approach. We selected 160 expressed candidate genes that are involved in cancer and anticancer drug resistance for analysis of AI in a panel of cell lines that represent different types of cancers and have been well characterized for their response patterns against anticancer drugs. Of these genes, 60 contained heterozygous SNPs in their coding regions, and 41 of the genes displayed imbalanced expression of the two cSNP alleles. Genes that displayed AI were subjected to bioinformatics-assisted identification of rSNPs that alter the strength of transcription factor binding. rSNPs in 15 genes were subjected to electrophoretic mobility shift assay, and in eight of these genes (APC, BCL2, CCND2, MLH1, PARP1, SLIT2, YES1, XRCC1) we identified differential protein binding from a nuclear extract between the SNP alleles. The screening process allowed us to zoom in from 160 candidate genes to eight genes that may contain functional rSNPs in their promoter regions.
