    Abstract

    Objective SNPs identified from genome-wide association studies associate with lipid risk markers of cardiovascular disease. This study investigated whether these SNPs altered the plasma lipid response to diet in the ‘RISCK’ study cohort. Methods Participants (n = 490) from a dietary intervention to lower saturated fat by replacement with carbohydrate or monounsaturated fat, were genotyped for 39 lipid-associated SNPs. The association of each individual SNP, and of the SNPs combined (using genetic predisposition scores), with plasma lipid concentrations was assessed at baseline, and on change in response to 24 weeks on diets. Results The associations between SNPs and lipid concentrations were directionally consistent with previous findings. The genetic predisposition scores were associated with higher baseline concentrations of plasma total (P = 0.02) and LDL (P = 0.002) cholesterol, triglycerides (P = 0.001) and apolipoprotein B (P = 0.004), and with lower baseline concentrations of HDL cholesterol (P < 0.001) and apolipoprotein A-I (P < 0.001). None of the SNPs showed significant association with the reduction of plasma lipids in response to the dietary interventions and there was no evidence of diet-gene interactions. Conclusion Results from this exploratory study have shown that increased genetic predisposition was associated with an unfavourable plasma lipid profile at baseline, but did not influence the improvement in lipid profiles by the low-saturated-fat diets.

    Abstract

    Objective: The PPARG SNP rs1801282 (Pro12Ala C>G) has shown variable association with metabolic syndrome traits in healthy subjects. We investigated genotype association with plasma lipids and the influence of dietary polyunsaturated:saturated fat ratio (P:S) in subjects at increased cardiometabolic risk. Methods: Habitual dietary intake was recorded at recruitment to the RISCK Study. PPARG rs1801282 was genotyped in 466 subjects aged 30-70 y. Genotype associations with plasma lipids were assessed at recruitment, after a 4-wk high-SFA (HS) diet and a 24-wk intervention with reference (HS), high-MUFA (HM) and low-fat (LF) diets. The interaction of habitual P:S intake x genotype on plasma lipid concentrations was investigated. Results: PPARG rs1801282 G-allele frequency was 0.09. At recruitment, G-allele carriers had higher plasma total cholesterol concentration (n=415; P=0.05) after adjustment for BMI, gender, age and ethnicity. Dietary P:S ratio x genotype interaction influenced plasma LDLcholesterol (P=0.02) and triglyceride (P=0.03) concentrations. At P:S ratio 0.33, mean LDLcholesterol concentration in G-allele carriers was higher than in non-carriers, but fell between 0.34-0.65. Triglyceride concentration followed a similar pattern. After the 4-wk HS diet, Gallele carriers had higher concentrations of total cholesterol (P=0.03), LDL-cholesterol (P=0.04) and apo B (P=0.04) than non-carriers, after adjustments. After the 24-wk interventions, diet x genotype interaction did not significantly influence either LDLcholesterol (P=0.58) or triglyceride (P=0.57) concentrations. Conclusion: A high dietary P:S ratio would help to reduce plasma LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations in PPARG rs1801282 G-allele carriers at increased cardiometabolic risk.
