OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to test for a genetic association between the G-105A promoter polymorphism of the inflammatory mediator Selenoprotein S (SEPS1) and preeclampsia. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study in a large Norwegian case-control cohort compared maternal genotype and allele frequencies of the SEPS1 g.-105G>A polymorphism genotyped by SNPlex assay in preeclamptic (n=1139) and control (n=2269) women. Statistical significance was determined by chi(2) and multivariate regression analyses. RESULTS: Women with preeclampsia were 1.34 times more likely to have the GA or AA genotype (P=.0039; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.09 to 1.64) and 1.22 times more likely to carry the A allele (P=.023; odds ratio, 1.22; 95% CI, 1.02 to 1.46). CONCLUSION: The A allele of the SEPS1-105G>A polymorphism is a significant risk factor for preeclampsia in this population.
