Abstract

Human adult height is closely related to body growth that is regulated by multiple cytokines or hormones like growth hormone (GH) and estrogen. Our study focused on three potential candidate genes to human height, namely IGF1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), ESR2, and CYP17. We genotyped 43 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and tested their associations in 1873 subjects from 405 nuclear families, using both the family-based quantitative transmission disequilibrium test (QTDT) and population-based ANOVA methods. Both analyses consistently detected that two novel SNPs of IGF1, rs5742694 and rs2033178, were significantly associated with human height, with the P-values of 0.0097 and 0.0057 in QTDT analyses, 0.0002/0.004 (sample 1/sample 2) and 8.46 × 10 -5/1.92 × 10 -5 in ANOVA analyses. For ESR2, significant associations were only detected in women (rs1256061: QTDT P = 0.002, ANOVA P = 0.002/0.012; rs17766755: QTDT P = 0.019, ANOVA P = 0.023/0.006; rs1256044: QTDT P = 0.022, ANOVA P = 0.002/0.034). Haplotype analyses corroborated our single-SNP results. However, no association was detected between CYP17 and human height. In conclusion, we identified the important effects of IGF1 and ESR2 on adult height variation in Caucasians, and first suggested the potential sex-specific effect of ESR2 on height variation in Caucasian women. It will be valuable for other independent studies to replicate and confirm these findings.
