Hyperuricemia is associated with the metabolic syndrome, gout, renal and cardiovascular disease (CVD). American Indians have high rates of CVD and 25% of individuals in the strong heart family study (SHFS) have high serum uric acid levels. The aim of this study was to investigate the genetic determinants of serum uric acid variation in American Indian participants of the SHFS. A variance component decomposition approach (implemented in SOLAR) was used to conduct univariate genetic analyses in each of three study centers and the combined sample. Serum uric acid was adjusted for age, sex, age x sex, BMI, estimated glomerular filtration rate, alcohol intake, diabetic status and medications. Overall mean +/- SD serum uric acid for all individuals was 5.14 +/- 1.5 mg/dl. Serum uric acid was found to be significantly heritable (0.46 +/- 0.03 in all centers, and 0.39 +/- 0.07, 0.51 +/- 0.05, 0.44 +/- 0.06 in Arizona, Dakotas and Oklahoma, respectively). Multipoint linkage analysis showed significant evidence of linkage for serum uric acid on chromosome 11 in the Dakotas center [logarithm of odds score (LOD) = 3.02] and in the combined sample (LOD = 3.56) and on chromosome 1 (LOD = 3.51) in the combined sample. A strong positional candidate gene in the chromosome 11 region is solute carrier family22, member 12 (SLC22A12) that encodes a major uric acid transporter URAT1. These results show a significant genetic influence and a possible role for one or more genes on chromosomes 1 and 11 on the variation in serum uric acid in American Indian populations.
