Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological diseases worldwide. Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA), the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter of the central nervous system, and its receptors are commonly mentioned in the pathophysiology of epilepsies. Some of the single nucleotide polymorphisms in the genes encoding GABA receptors have been reported to increase susceptibility to temporal lobe epilepsy. There are a limited number of studies analyzing the relationship of GABA receptors and idiopathic epilepsy, which is the most widespread (65%) when etiologically classified. In Turkish population, genetic polymorphisms of GABAA, GABAB1 and GABAB2 receptors have not been studied before. For these reasons, in this study we aimed to determine the frequencies of genetic polymorphisms of GABA receptors A, B1 and B2 in Turkish population by PCR-RFLP (polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism) method, and to investigate the correlation between these polymorphisms and idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE). A second aim of this study was to analzye the role of GABA receptor polymorphisms in differential diagnosis of pschogenic non-epileptic seizure (PNES). In this context, 196 IGE patients, 107 PNES subjects and 109 controls were inculded in this study. Polymorphic allele frequencies were very close to each other in the three groups (0.457 in IGE patients, 0.453 in PNES patients and 0.427 in controls) for the GABAA α1 rs2279020 polymorphism. A statistically significant relationship was not found between this polymorphism and IGE. We did not observe polymorphic alleles in Turkish population for GABAA 2 rs17852044, GABAA 3 rs79829085 and GABAB1 G1465A. For GABAB1 C59T polymorphism, when IGE patients and PNES subjects were compared, C59T polymorphism was found to increase IGE risk 1,5 times, but this result was not significant (P=0.164). The frequency of C59T polymorphism in control population was found as 0.110 in this study. We observed that four polymorphisms found on GABAB2 gene (rs3780428-rs1999501- rs967932-rs94688) did not constitute a significant risk for IGE when considered alone. When the genotype combinations were taken into account, we concluded that having polymorphic homozygote genotype for rs944688 and wild type genotype for rs967932 and rs1999501 had 15 times protective effect against IGE for PNES subjects (P=0.001). The same genotype combination constituted 12 times protective effect against IGE in control subjects (P=0.009). This triple combined genotype can be used to differentiate subjects who have psychogenic seizures (PNES) from those having epileptic seizures. All of the studied polymoprhisms were studied for the first time in Turkish population


Association between gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) type B receptors gene polymorphisms and idiopathic generalized epilepsy

Epilepsy is neurological disorder affecting 0.5 to 1% of the population all around the world. It is characterized by the seizures, which are the sudden alterations of behavior due to a temporary change in electrical functioning of the brain. Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) accounts for one-fifth of all the other epilepsy types, and several gene mutations were identified as the causes of IGE. In general, voltage-gated and ligand-gated ion channel mutations are linked with seizure formation. Gamma amino...
Analysis of cytochrome P4501A1 genetic polymorphisms in patients with ischemic stroke
Adalı, Ayşe Çınar; Adalı, Orhan; Demirdöğen, Birsen Can; Department of Biochemistry (2011)
Stroke is the third leading cause of death worldwide and results in serious disabilities. Cytochrome P450 1A1 gene (CYP1A1) is a highly polymorphic gene encoding its corresponding xenobiotic metabolizing enzyme which is responsible from the metabolism of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that are engaged with the formation of free radicals. Atherosclerosis is a major cause of ischemic stroke and this pathology may be associated with the disruption of vascular homeostasis due to the format...
Association analysis of glutathione s-transferase omega 1 and omega 2 genetic polymorphisms and ischemic stroke risk in Turkish population

Stroke is defined as the acute neurological cerebrovascular disease based on interruptions to blood flow in the brain. These interruptions are caused by loss of blood supply due to vessel bursts or vessel blocked by clotting. Atherosclerosis, a main cause of stroke, is blockage of endothelium layer of arteries and losing the flexibility of tissue. The oxidative stress is known as a risk factor for atherosclerosis. The increased free radicals such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) and decreased antioxidant le...
Association analysis of cholesterol 7-alpha hydroxylase (CYP7A1)and cholesterol 24-hydroxlase (CYP46A1) genetic polymorphisms and multiple sclerosis risk in Turkish population

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is the most common demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system. Under the effects of certain environmental factors, MS develops in genetically susceptible individuals. People with MS have significantly lower vitamin D levels. UV-B radiation catalyzes the photo-conversion of 7-dehydrocholesterol, produced in cholesterol production pathway, to vitamin D in the skin. Cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase (CYP7A1) in the liver and Cholesterol 24S-hydroxylase (CYP46A1) in the brain are resp...
Genetic polymorphism of vitamin D3 metabolising cytochrome p450 (CYPS) enyzmes and risk of ischemic stroke in Turkish population
Öner, Tuğçe; Adalı, Orhan; Can Demirdöğen, Birsen; Department of Biochemistry (2015)
Stroke, as a neurological disorder, is defined as cessation or severe reduction of blood flow to the brain due to a clot or burst of blood vessel in the brain. Atherosclerosis is the hardening of the arteries due to accumulation of plaques in the vessels. Vitamin D deficiency is known as important risk factor in pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, which contributes to stroke development. Incidence of stroke is affected by environmental and genetic risk factors. So, genetic variations including single nucleotid...
