|Resumo:||Paget's disease of bone (PDB) is the second most frequent metabolic bone disease after osteoporosis. Genetic factors play an important role in PDB, but to date PDB causing mutations were identified only in the Sequestosome 1 gene at the PDB3 locus. OPTN has been recently associated with PDB, however little is known about the effect of genetic variants in this gene in PDB pathophysiology. By sequencing OPTN in SQSTM1 non-carriers PDB patients we found 16 SNPs in regulatory, coding and non-coding regions. One of those was found to be associated with PDB in our cohort - rs2234968. Our results show that rs2238968 effect may be explained by a change in OPTN splicing that give rise to a predicted truncated protein. We also performed functional studies on the variants located in OPTN promoter - rs3829923 and the rare variant -9906 - to investigate putative regulators of OPTN. Our results show that OPTN expression seems to be regulated by SP1, RXR, E47, and the E2F family. In conclusion, our work suggests a potential pathophysiological role of SNPs in OPTN, giving a new perspective about the regulatory mechanisms of this gene. Ultimately we discovered a new variant associated with PDB in OPTN, reinforcing the relevance of this gene for the development of this bone disease.|
