Συνδυαστική μελέτη συσχετισμού των πολυμορφισμών στους υποδοχείς της FSH και της AMH σε πτωχές και καλές απαντήτριες στην IVF.
Combined study on the single nucleotide polymorphisms in the FSH and AMH receptor as genetic markers in assisted reproduction technology.
The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether the combination of two polymorphisms found on human FSH receptor gene – FSHR (Ser680Asn), and on human AMH receptor gene - AMHRII (−482 A>G), respectively are related to the assisted reproduction outcome.
In this study we assessed the distribution of the genotypes of FSHR Ser680Asn and of AMHRII −482 A>G gene polymorphisms in an IVF/ICSI group consisting of 126 women undergoing IVF/ICSI treatment for infertility and a control group consisting of 100 fertile women. Genotypes were determined using real-time PCR to discriminate for the different genotypes. We also performed a combinational study of the 9 possible combinations of the two polymorphisms and investigated their respective frequency in Greek women.
Real-time PCR genotyping results revealed three different genotypes for each gene; women homozygous for the normal allele, women heterozygous for the polymorphism and women homozygous for the polymorphism. Statistical analysis showed that the frequency of the genotypes is similar in both control and IVF/ICSI groups. Further investigation of the frequency of the 9 possible combinations of these polymorphisms in the groups revealed no correlation between infertility and combination of the polymorphisms.
Our results show that in the Greek population the distribution of the FSHR Ser680Asn and of the AMHRII −482 A>G gene polymorphisms, is similar in fertile and infertile women and that there is no correlation of clinical importance between these polymorphisms and infertility.
