RESUMO

The pathogenesis of recurrent spontaneous abortion is multifactorial, presumably involving the interaction of several genetic and environmental factors. The methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism has been implicated as risk factor for recurrent spontaneous abortion (RA). The main objective of this research was to investigate the association between the C677T polymorphism of the MTHFR gene as a genetic risk factor for idiopathic RA. Molecular analysis was performed in 80 DNA samples from 30 patients with RA and among 50 healthy control subjects. Using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), a 198 bp (bases pairs) fragment, was digested with the restriction enzyme Hinf1, which can recognize the C > T substitution responsible for the polymorphism. 677T MTHFR allele frequencies for group with RA and the control group were 35% and 33%, respectively and 677C MTHFR allele frequencies were 65% and 67%, respectively. There was no significant difference in allele frequency between these two groups. The data presented in this study fail to support the relationship between MTHFR C677T polymorphism and risk in women with RA.

RESUMO

La patogénesis de los abortos espontáneos recurrentes es multifactorial; probablemente se debe a la interacción de varios factores ambientales y genéticos. El polimorfismo C677T del gen de la metiltetrahidrofolato reductasa (MTHFR), ha sido implicado como factor de riesgo para aborto espontáneo recurrente (AR). El objetivo de este trabajo fue investigar la asociación del polimorfismo C677T de la MTHFR como factor de riesgo en AR idiopático. Se analizaron 80 muestras de ADN, correspondientes a 30 mujeres con AR y a 50 mujeres controles. A través de la reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR) se amplificó un fragmento de 198 pares de base (pb), el cual se sometió a digestión con la enzima de restricción HinfI, que reconoce el sitio de restricción creado por la transición C>T en la posición 677. La frecuencia alélica de la MTHFR en el grupo de estudio y control fue 35% y 33% respectivamente; para el alelo T y 65% y 67% respectivamente, para el alelo C. No se encontró diferencia significativa entre el alelo T ni el C al ser comparados en ambos grupos. No se demostró un factor predisponente entre el polimorfismo C677T de la MTHFR y el AR en la muestra estudiada.
