Abstract [en]

Background Previous genetic association studies have reported evidence for association of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the NOS2 gene, encoding inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), to variation in levels of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) in children and adults. In this study, we evaluated 10 SNPs in the region of chromosome 17 from 26.07Mb to 26.13Mb to further understand the contribution of NOS2 to variation in levels of FENO. Methods In a cohort of 5912 adults 25-75years of age, we investigated the relationship between NOS2 haplotypes and FENO, and effect modification by asthma. Results Seven common (frequency 5%) haplotypes (H1-H7) were inferred from all possible haplotype combinations. One haplotype (H3) was significantly associated with lower levels of FENO: -5.8% (95% CI -9.8 to -1.7; p=0.006) compared with the most common baseline haplotype H1. Two haplotypes (H5 and H6) were significantly associated with higher levels of FENO: +10.7% (95% CI 5.0 to 16.7; p=0.0002) and +14.9% (95% CI 10.6 to 19.3; p=7.8x10(-13)), respectively. The effect of haplotype H3 was mainly seen in subjects with asthma (-21.6% (95% CI -33.5 to -5.9)) and was not significant in subjects without asthma (-4.2% (95% CI -8.4 to 0.2)). The p value for interaction between H3 and asthma status was 0.004. Conclusions Our findings suggest that several common haplotypes in the NOS2 gene contribute to variation in FENO in adults. We also saw some evidence of effect modification by asthma status on haplotype H3.
