Sažetak
Aim To study the association between genetic variants in
myocilin and collagen type I alpha 1 genes and high myopia
in an isolated island population.
Methods A total of 944 examinees from the genetic epidemiology
study conducted on the island of Korčula, Croatia,
were included in the study. We selected 2 short nucleotide
polymorphisms (SNP) available in our genome-wide
scan set of SNPs that were previously associated with high
myopia and used them to replicate previous claims of possible
association.
Results Nineteen cases of high myopia, defined as the refraction
of ≤-6.00 diopters, were identified and included
in the analysis. We showed that rs2075555 in the COL1A1
gene was not associated with high myopia. In contrast,
rs2421853 in the myocilin gene was significantly associated
in both bivariate (P = 0.006) and age- and sex-adjusted
analysis (P = 0.049).
Conclusion Myocilin seems to be a very strong candidate
for explaining some of the pathophysiological pathways
leading to the development of both glaucoma and high
myopia. As our finding was obtained in a relatively underpowered
sample, further research and replication of these
results is needed.
