Abstract

The aim of present study was to elucidate the role of the interleukin (IL)-24 gene in predicting risk for plaque-type psoriasis and to describe the linkage disequilibrium (LD) pattern emerging from the genes of IL-19, IL-20 and IL-24. Genes encoding IL-19, IL-20 and IL-24 locate in the region q32 of chromosome 1. The association between the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) or haplotypes of the IL-24 gene and the susceptibility of psoriasis was not found. However, a significant protective effect of the combined haplotype CAAAC of IL-20 and IL-24 genes against plaque-type psoriasis was established (OR 0.154). Protective effect against psoriasis was also observed with haplotype TGGGT (OR 0.591) and haplotype CGAGT (OR 0.457). Performing a comprehensive analysis using the data regarding SNPs of IL-24 gene together with the previously published data regarding IL-19 and IL-20 SNPs, we identified two haplotype blocks within the region q32 of chromosome 1. The main result of the present study is that while the IL-19/IL-20 extended haplotype CACCGGAA is a significant susceptibility factor for psoriasis (previous study), IL-20/IL-24 haplotypes CAAAC, TGGGT and CGAGT have a significant protective effect. Nevertheless, family-based studies are required to confirm the impact of IL-19, IL-20 and IL-24 genes in the genetic predisposition for psoriasis.
