Streszczenie w j. angielskim lub krótki opis pracy ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 2 (ABCG2), also known as breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), is one of the key efflux ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters of xenobiotics, their metabolites and endogenous compounds such as urate. Some of its genetic variants have been found to influence protein functioning, resulting in serious clinical implications concerning chemotherapy response, as well as gout or blood group phenotype Jr(a-). Previous reports have suggested that the frequencies of certain crucial polymorphisms, such as c.34G>A (p.Val12Met) and c.421C>A (p.Gln141Lys) differ significantly between the Polish population and other Caucasian populations. Thus, to clarify this issue, the present study performs a complete analysis of the genetic variation of ABCG2 coding sequence in the Polish population. The genetic variation in 14 out of 15 coding exons of the ABCG2 gene, as well as their flanking intron sequences, were examined among 190 healthy representatives of the Polish population using scanning with High Resolution Melting (HRM). HRM scanning revealed 17 polymorphisms: eight in the exons (including five missense variants and one point-nonsense mutation) and nine in the intron sequences (eight single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and one deletion variant). These included variants correlating with the presence of gout and phenotype Jr(a-). Linkage disequilibrium, haplotype blocks and haplotype analyses were also performed. The frequencies of the most common polymorphisms in the Polish population did not differ significantly to those observed for other Caucasian populations, but demonstrated divergence from non-Caucasian populations. We hope that our findings may be helpful for other researchers and clinicians, evaluating the pharmacogenetic role of ABCG2.
