Endogenous sex hormones have been observed to have a role in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) predisposition. Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) regulates the bioavailability of sex hormones to target tissues. Therefore, we examined the distribution of the SHBG functional polymorphism Asp327Asn (rs6259) in SLE patients (n = 150) and controls (n = 150) in a Polish population. We found a contribution of the SHBG327Asn variant to the development of SLE. Women with the Asp/Asn and Asn/Asn… Expand
