Association of NM23 polymorphisms and clinicopathological features and recurrence of invasive pituitary adenomas

Pituitary adenomas (PAs) are intracranial tumors, deriving from anterior pituitary cells. Previously, expression of non-metastasis-23 (NM23) gene has been shown to correlate with the progression of PAs. In this study, we aim to determine whether there is association between specific NM23 polymorphisms and invasive pituitary adenoma (IPA).
Genotypes of rs2302254 and rs16949649 of NM23 were identified in the peripheral venous blood of patients by PCR-RLFP. Next, the correlation between specific genotypes of rs2302254 and rs16949649 and risk of IPA was investigated. Finally, the correlations between NM23 polymorphisms and tumor size, Ki67 LI and recurrence of IPA were analyzed with 3 to 24 months follow-up for the enrolled patients.
We observed that the TT genotype at rs16949649 correlated closely with a high risk of IPA, while CC and CT genotypes reduced the risk of IPA. CC genotype at rs2302254 increased the risk of IPA, while CT and TT genotypes reduced the risk of IPA. Trs16949649Crs2302254 haplotype of NM23 was found to be a high-risk haplotype for IPA. TT genotype at rs16949649 and CC genotype at rs2302254 were associated with higher rates of tumors larger than 20 mm, Ki67 LI and tumor recurrence.
Taken together, the present study provides evidence that NM23 polymorphisms are closely associated with the incidence and recurrence of IPA. Specifically, TT genotype at rs16949649 and CC genotype at rs2302254 are risk factors of IPA. NM23 polymorphisms could therefore be used as a reference for clinical diagnosis and prognosis of IPA.
