Epistatic interaction of apolipoprotein E and lipolysis-stimulated lipoprotein receptor genetic variants is associated with Alzheimer's disease

Abstract : The ε4 allele of the apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene common polymorphism is the strongest genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Human APOE gene is located on chromosome 19q13.1, a region linked to AD that also includes the LSR gene, which encodes the lipolysis-stimulated lipoprotein receptor (LSR). As an APOE receptor, LSR is involved in the regulation of lipid homeostasis in both periphery and brain. This study aimed to determine the potential interactions between 2 LSR genetic variants, rs34259399 and rs916147, and the APOE common polymorphism in 142 AD subjects (mean age: 73.16 ± 8.50 years) and 63 controls (mean age: 70.41 ± 8.49 years). A significant epistatic interaction was observed between APOE and both LSR variants, rs34259399 (beta = -0.95; p = 2 × 10-5) and rs916147 (beta = -0.83; p = 6.8 × 10-3). Interestingly, the interaction of LSR polymorphisms with APOE non-ε4 alleles increased AD risk. This indicates the existence of complex molecular interactions between these 2 neighboring genes involved in the pathogenesis of AD, which merits further investigation. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Inc.
