Abstract

This study was to explore the relationships between (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T single nucleotide polymorphisms(SNP) in IL-1beta gene with lumbar intervertebral disc disease. We analyzed (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene by the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism and electrophoresis methods respectively in 81 cases with lumbar disc disease and 101 healthy controls. The relationship between (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene and lumbar disc disease in two groups was measured, so does the relationship between (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene and intervertebral disc degeneration in those younger than 45-year-old. The results showed there were (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene. There was a significant difference in the distribution of TT, TC and CC genotype or T, C genotype of (-511)T>C of IL-1beta in two groups. And there was no significant difference in the distribution of (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene in two groups. There was no significant difference between the distribution of (-511)T>C and (+3954)C>T SNP in IL-1beta gene and intervertebral disc degeneration in those younger than 45-year-old. It suggested (-511)T>C SNP in IL-1beta gene be one of the susceptible alleles for Lumbar disc disease.
