INTRODUCTION: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a multi-factorial disorder with five important components. A high triglyceride level combined with low HDL cholesterol has been reported to be associated with Apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) gene variations. In this study, we aimed to determine the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms including: rs662799, rs3135506 and rs2075291 in the apolipoprotein A-V (APOA5) gene in relation to MetS component like triglyceride and HDL-C level in Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study (TLGS).

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Metabolic syndrome was defined according to ATPIII and phenotypes were defined by the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) criteria for MetS. Demographic, biochemical parameters and anthropometric variables were measured. Selected APOA5 gene polymorphisms were genotyped using PCR-RFLP method.
RESULTS: From TLGS population, 947 adults, aged 19 – 70 years, were randomly selected and recruited into the study. Mean age, triglyceride and WC were higher and mean HDL was lower in MetS vs. non-MetS group. C allele in rs2075291 showed a significant association with MetS (OR: 2.38, 95% CI; 1.11 – 5.08, P = 1.5 ×10-2). The association was shown between higher serum triglyceride and the presence of T allele (P = 4.5 × 10-4) and also lower serum HDL-C and the presence of T allele (P = 1.6 × 10-3) in rs2075291. Also this association showed between raised waist circumference and C allele in rs3135506 (P = 3.5 × 10-2) and raised systolic and diastolic blood pressure level and C allele of rs662799 (P = 4.5 10-2).
CONCLUSION: According to the results, there is a relationship between lipid profile and studied polymorphism in the presence of metabolic syndrome. It seems that APOA5 rs2075291 could play an important role in triglyceride and HDL-C level in metabolic syndrome affected, while the association of APOA5 rs662799 polymorphism is still under debate.
