Sample text

The limitation of association studies using a candidate gene approach is that they are by definition restricted to pathways already recognized to be associated with the disease—in the case of COPD, the proteinase-antiproteinase balance, the oxidative stress pathway, and the integrity of the extracellular matrix (see later). Consequently, this approach lacks the capacity to identify unanticipated players and is thus restricted to hypothesis testing, rather than hypothesis generation. In recent years, the collection of large cohorts of patients combined with technologic advances has allowed unbiased genome-wide association studies of many patients with lung disease.

They destabilize the molecule to allow the formation of loop-sheet polymers in vivo. Further investigations have shown that polymerization also underlies the mild plasma deficiency of the S (Glu264Val) and I (Arg39Cys) variants of α1-antitrypsin. The point mutations that are responsible for these variants have less effect on β-sheet A than does the Z variant. Thus, the associated rate of polymer formation is much slower than that for Z α1-antitrypsin, which results in less retention of protein within hepatocytes, milder plasma deficiency, and the lack of a clinical phenotype.

Posttranslational modification of histones can alter DNA coiling around them. For example, the relative activities of histone acetyltransferases (HATs) and histone deacetylases (HDACs) profoundly alter histone function and consequently gene transcription. Cigarette smoke and oxidative stress can enhance histone acetylation by impairing HDAC activity resulting in altered gene expression. A number of genes have been studied that might plausibly modify the cells’ responses to cigarette smoke and ROS.
