Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in pre-miRNAs may alter microRNA (miRNA) expression levels or processing and contribute to susceptibility to a wide range of diseases. We investigated the correlation between four SNPs (rs11614913, rs3746444, rs2910164, and rs229283) in pre-miRNAs and the risk of asthma in 220 asthma patients and 540 controls using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism methodology and DNA-sequencing. There were significant differences in the genotype and allelic distribution of rs2910164G/C and rs2292832C/T polymorphisms among cases and controls. The CC genotype and C allele of rs2910164G/C were significantly associated with a decreased risk of asthma (CC vs. GG, odds ratio [OR] = 0.51, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.31-0.82; C vs. G, OR = 0.74, 95% CI: 0.59-0.93). Similarly, the TT genotype and T allele of rs2292832C/T were significantly associated with a decreased risk of asthma (TT vs. CC, OR = 0.56, 95% CI: 0.33-0.95; T vs. C, OR = 0.71, 95% CI: 0.53-0.95). However, no significant association between the other two polymorphisms (i.e., rs11614913C/T and rs3746444C/T) and the risk of asthma was observed. Our data indicate that rs2910164G/C and rs2292832C/T may play a role in the development of asthma.
