Abstract

Background

Atherosclerosis leading to cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the main cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Paraoxonase1 (PON1) is the best understood member of plasma paraoxonases with anti-atherogenic properties.

Patients and methods

Spanish RA (n = 549) consecutively recruited from 1 single center and 477 ethnically matched healthy controls were included in a case-control study. The concentration of PON1 was evaluated by means of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent sssay (ELISA). An arylesterase/paraoxonase assay kit was used to evaluate PON1 activity. Sample genotyping was performed by using TaqMan assays-on-demand. All results were expressed as medians ± interquartile range. One-way ANOVA comparisons were done using a nonparametric Kruskall-Wallis test. P values under 0.05 were considered to be significant.

Results

The concentration of PON1 in the RA group was higher than in control group (p = 0.0003), although the differences were not significant when PON1 activities were compared between both groups. No significant differences were found related to distributions of rs662 genotypes in RA patients compared to healthy controls. Among rs854860 polymorphisms, overall genotype was widely distributed between RA patients and controls. Overall PON1 concentration in plasma was not significantly different between individuals carrying any of rs662 (p = 0.8501) or rs854860 (p = 0.2741) polymorphisms. Although PON1 levels were not associated with any of the SNPs in the study, differences appear when enzyme activities are compared for each SNP separately. CVD in RA patients correlate with increased PON1 levels and lower PON1 activity.

Conclusions

Although protective role of PON1 against oxidative damage in vivo could be related to other activities, in our study arylesterase activity was useful to identify phenotypic differences with emphasis placed on two SNPs coding for nonconservative amino acid changes in the functional protein.
