Abstract: AIMS: Diabetic nephropathy is one of the major complications of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of angiotensinogen M235T/T174M and angiotensin type 1 receptor A1166C gene polymorphisms on the development of diabetic nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
METHODS: This study included 100 type‑2 diabetes mellitus patients with diabetic nephropathy patients (patient group) and 99 type‑2 diabetes mellitus patients without diabetic nephropathy (control group). Polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism methods were used to identify polymorphisms in the angiotensinogen M235T/T174M and angiotensin type 1 receptor A1166C genes.
RESULTS: There was no significant difference in genotype frequencies of M235T gene polymorphism between patient and control groups (χ2 = 4.01, df = 2, p = 0.13). There was no significant difference in genotype frequencies of T174M gene polymorphism between patient and control groups (X2 = 0.36, df = 2, p = 0.83). There was no significant difference in genotype frequencies of A1166C gene polymorphism between patient and control groups (χ2 = 0.51, df = 2, p = 0.77).
CONCLUSIONS: The results showed no significant difference in angiotensinogen M235T/T174M and angiotensin type 1 receptor A1166C gene polymorphisms between the patient and control groups. Future studies are needed to validate the results of this study and to explore underlying mechanisms (Tab. 3, Fig. 3, Ref. 35). Text in PDF www.elis.sk
