Relative changes of Ery-Cd and U-Cd concentrations depending on genotypes of TFRC rs3804141.
TFRC rs3804141 was only in weak LD with the other eight TFRC SNPs: [r.
544932 rs10247962 Intron G > 2/98 98 A TFR2 rs34242818 I238M G > 0/100 98 C Chr 7q22 TFRC rs2284889 Intron T > 27/73 97 C Hs.
For example, the A allele of TFRC rs3804141 creates a potential binding site for a transcription factor from the homeobox/homeodomain family, whereas the site is abolished for carriers of the G allele.
There was no significant association between TFRC rs3804141 and ferritin (data not shown) in either study population.
TFRC expression was significantly negatively correlated with ferritin ([r.
The rs3804141 TFRC gene SNP was significantly associated with U-Cd concentrations in both study populations.
We measured gene expression in whole blood, where TF, TFRC, TRF2, SLC40A1, and SLC11A2 genes are not highly expressed (Uhlen et al.
Consistent results for both study populations were only found for one intronic TFRC SNP: The A allele of rs3804141 was associated with increased U-Cd concentrations.
