OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of the functional FCRL3 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) -169T/C with disease phenotypes and susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Taiwanese.
METHODS: FCRL3 SNP -169T/C was genotyped in 573 patients with SLE, 670 patients with RA, and 758 controls. Genotype distributions and allele frequencies were compared among the 3 groups as aggregates or as stratified by clinical characteristics, autoantibody profile, and sex within patient groups.
RESULTS: Overall, FCRL3 SNP -169T/C was not associated with susceptibility to either SLE or RA. However, -169CC genotype was significantly reduced in leukopenia-positive SLE patients as compared to the leukopenia-negative SLE patients (CC vs CT+TT, p = 6 × 10(-4), OR 0.444, 95% CI 0.279-0.708) and controls (p = 6.1 × 10(-3), OR 0.583, 95% CI 0.396-0.857). On the other hand, -169TT genotypes were significantly more numerous in RA patients with non-destructive disease as compared with patients with destructive disease (CC+CT vs TT: p = 0.007, OR 1.672, 95% CI 1.149-2.432). The -169T allele frequency was also significantly increased in non-destructive RA compared with patients with destructive disease (C vs T: p = 0.010, OR 1.423, 95% CI 1.089-1.859). FCRL3 SNP -169TT homozygous donors were significantly more numerous among female cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP)-negative RA patients versus female CCP-positive RA patients (CC+CT vs TT: p = 0.019, OR 1.64, 95% CI 1.085-2.479).
CONCLUSION: The functional FCRL3 SNP -169T/C appears to play important roles in the development of certain phenotypes such as SLE leukopenia and RA disease severity in Taiwanese patients with SLE and RA.
