Az allergia genomikai háttere

Translated title of the contribution: The genomic background of allergy

Abstract

In this review we summarise the current results of the genomic investigation of allergic diseases. From the genetic point of view allergy is multifactorial, which means that the susceptibility to the disease is determined by the effect of one or more genes or the interactions between multiple genes and involves important nongenetic factors such as the environment for their expression. Among allergic diseases the genomic background of asthma was studied most thoroughly. Until now, using hundreds of DNA markers, located across all of the human chromosomes, 16 genome-wide screens for susceptibility genes for asthma or asthma related intermediate phenotypes in 12 different populations have been published and 20 chromosomal regions have been highlighted for further analysis. In genetic association studies more than 500 genes were identified as candidate genes for asthma. In this review, we selected those results which were consistently reported by several independent studies or appeared particularly important or interesting. According to the results of the human genome programs and association studies we discuss the possible roles of candidate genes found in these loci in the pathomechanism of allergy and atopy.
